the film snob

A cyberspace journal about my experiences as an NYU film school grad student, reviews of current and classic films, film and TV news, and the rants and raves of an admitted (and unapologetic) film snob.

Damon Is Hollywood's "Best Value"

IMDb ran a fascinating news story this morning. Instead of analyzing what top movie stars are paid, Forbes worked out which stars represent the best investment, dollar for dollar, of Hollywood's money. Not what their individual films have brought in, but an across the board return for their salaries.

Matt Damon offers the best box office returns, at twice the value of Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks. He makes $29 dollars for each dollar he is paid. And he gets paid a lot.

The top ten is as follows: 1. Matt Damon; 2. Brad Pitt; 3. Vince Vaughn & Johnny Depp; 5. Jennifer Aniston; 6. Angelina Jolie; 7. Renee Zellweger; 8. Reese Witherspoon; 9. Ben Stiller; 10. Sandra Bullock.
