If you haven’t rushed out to see Adam Sandler’s most recent films, you’re not alone. The thing is, while Sandler vehicles like “Jack & Jill” and “That’s My Boy” have fallen flat at the box office, the comic actor still commands mega-high paychecks — we’re talking over $15 million a pop. This disparity has landed him the number one spot on Forbes’ 2013 list of Hollywood’s most overpaid actors.

Sandler leads a pack of other talented, disproportionately compensated stars, including Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell and Matt Damon.
