Natalie Portman Tops Forbes List of 'Best Actors For the Buck'
Forbes has compiled a list of movie stars that offer studios the greatest bang for their buck. The Top 10 list of actors was composed using "data on actors' earnings," "box office grosses and budget estimates" and the actors' last three films over the past three years "that opened in more than 2,000 theaters, calculating the return on investment for the studios who pay his (or her) salary."
The Top 10 list is as follows:
3. Shia LaBeouf
9. Amy Adams
10. Kevin James
Portman's recent films include BLACK SWAN, No Strings Attached and Your Highness. No Strings Attached, a romantic comedy co-starring Ashton Kutcher, earned $150 million at the box office globally on a small $25 million budget. Similiar to her film BLACK SWAN, the comedy was another movie starring Portman with a low budget and a high box office return, making her a worthwhile investment to Hollywood producers.
