Premiere Of Lionsgate's "Mortdecai" - ArrivalsJohnny Depp may have stored up lots of moviegoing goodwill thanks to his iconic work as Captain Jack Sparrow in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, but that sentiment didn't translate into box office dollars in 2015: Depp's inability to earn much money at the multiplex this year has earned him the dubious title of Hollywood's most overpaid actor.

Forbes put out its annual list of overpaid performers this week, and Depp's 2015 numbers are especially dismal (yes, even for the star of notorious flop "The Lone Ranger"): According to the magazine, Depp made only $1.20 for every $1 he was paid for films including "Mortdecai" and "Transcendence," which earned just $47 million and $100 million, respectively. (For comparison, Chris Evans returned $181.80 for every dollar he took home in 2015, making him Hollywood's best bargain, according to Forbes.)

While 2016 does look brighter for Depp (he has another "Pirates" flick on the horizon, as well as "the Alice in Wonderland" sequel "Through the Looking Glass"), he still has to worry about the underwhelming box office for "Black Mass," which may mar his numbers next year. (Forbes looked at each actor's three most recent wide-release films that debuted before June 2015 for its list, meaning "Black Mass" will be eligible for Depp's 2016 calculation.)

The rest of Forbes's list is peppered with similarly-big name stars, including Denzel Washington, Will Ferrell, and Will Smith. The full top 10 most overpaid list is below.
