Actor Mark Wahlberg has topped Forbes magazines list of The Most Overpaid Actor Of 2017. The list is based on a valuation which included the performance of an actor’s last three non-animated, large-scale movies released prior to June 1, 2017, reports forbes.com.

Wahlberg made over $68 million pre-tax this year. Wahlberg pulled in only $4.40 at the box office for every dollar spent on his services. His low return numbers were fuelled by several high profile bombs. Wahlberg appeared in Transformers: The Last Knight and Daddy’s Home 2 in 2017.

Actor Christian Bale was ranked second on the list with a $6.70 return on investment of $1. He starred in The Promise, which “earned back an estimated 11% of its $90 million-plus production costs, making it one of the worst-performing wide releases of the year,” according to Forbes.

He was followed by Channing Tatum ($7.60) and Denzel Washington ($10.40) at the third and fourth position.

Brad Pitt rounded off the top five with $11.50 return on an investment of $1.
