It’s official, Adam Sandler is the most overpaid actor in all of Hollywood, just barely beating out Katherine Heigl, queen of awful movies.

Yeah, no one is surprised by this turn of events.

Said list was compiled by Forbes, who calculated based on what the actor was paid in their last projects and what the films made at the box office. For example, Sandler only earns the studios $3.40 for every $1 he’s paid and Heigl $3.50 to the dollar.

America’s sweetheart Reese Witherspoon has also landed herself on the list, making only $3.90 for every $1 paid, making her more overpaid than internet meme Nicolas Cage who at least returns $6 for every $1 he’s paid.

Reese Witherspoon, look at your life, look at your choices.
