Nicole Kidman offers Hollywood the poorest financial returns for any actor or actress, according to Forbes Magazine. She topples fellow Australian Russell Crowe who occupied the same ignominious position last year.
Also making the top ten most overpaid Hollywood celebrities were Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Jim Carrey, Nicolas Cage, Jennifer Lopez, Drew Barrymore, Will Ferrell and Cate Blanchett.
Forbes annual list of Hollywood's most valuable stars, released in July, was topped by Vince Vaughn, who scored $14.73 for every dollar he was paid for films including The Break-up, Wedding Crashers and Dodgeball.
Number two on the magazine's Ultimate Star Payback list was Tobey Maguire, with a gross income return of $13.44 for each dollar of his pay for the Spider-Man sequels and Seabiscuit.
