PanARMENIAN.Net - Women dominate Forbes' Best Actors for the Buck this year. Emma Stone, Mila Kunis and Jennifer Lawrence are on the top 3. It's the opposite list of Hollywood's most overpaid stars, which means that whoever making it on the list is worth every penny spent on them, AceShowbiz said.
According to Forbes who makes the assessment based on the last three films those actors starred in over the past three years up to June 1 excluding animated movies, Stone makes the best return, $80.70, for every $1 she got paid. Her biggest credit is "The Amazing Spider-Man" which grossed a massive $752 million at the global box office.
Kunis follows at the second place by helping the studios that hired her receive back $68.70 for every dollar she pocketed. The 30-year-old brunette beauty makes the second best return in investment number, thanks to box office hits "Ted" and "Oz: The Great and Powerful".
Lawrence trails closely behind Kunis by giving an average $68.6 for every penny she was paid. She has two big movies in 2012 alone, box office blockbuster "The Hunger Games" and Oscar-winning "Silver Linings Playbook".
The movie starlet, 23, reportedly got less than $1 million for the first "Hunger Games", but earned more for the sequel "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire". It raked in over $760 million worldwide, becoming the fourth-highest grossing film of 2013. She could reach higher spot if the second film was counted, but unfortunately it didn't.
The highest-ranked male star this year is Dwayne Johnson. The Rock returns an estimated $31.10 for every dollar, sitting behind "Thor" actress Natalie Portman who pays back $31.30 for every $1 she got. With two box office hits "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" and "Fast and Furious 6", the pro wrestler-turned-actor also tops Forbes' 2013 Highest-Grossing Actor ahead of "Iron Man" star Robert Downey Jr.
Other stars on the list are Daniel Craig, Russell Crowe and "Twilight Saga" trio Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
