And there’s research to prove it https://t.co/8AZyK1aQkC— New York Post (@nypost) October 19, 2017
After analyzing box office data from 1980 to 2017, the British betting site PartyCasino determined that:
-The most profitable top-billed actor in Hollywood is Emilio Estevez. For every $1 spent on the leading man’s films, Estevez generated $6.70 at the box office. He starred in movies such as The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo's Fire, The Mighty Ducks and the Young Guns
-Orher profitable stars are: Jean-Claude Van Damme raked in $4.20 for each dollar, Mel Gibson ($3.50), Tyler Perry ($3) and Dudley Moore ($3).
The results for the worst return are:
-Brad Pitt returned only 10 cents for every $1 spent, Johnny Depp (20 cents), Robert De Niro (24 cents), Hugh Jackman (25 cents) and Anthony Hopkins (26 cents)
