Depp, whose estimated annual earnings is $30m/year — returned just $1.20 for every $1 he was paid, according to Forbes magazine.

Depp’s ranking was was due to financial failures on movies MortdecaiTranscendence and The Lone Ranger, which all bombed at the box office.

Despite a bad year, Depp is expected to receive an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Whitey Bulger in mob thriller Black Mass, which fell outside the current period measured by Forbes.
