Highlighting the flops of the year, Forbes has released its list of Hollywood's 10 Most Overpaid Actors of 2012.

Topping the list this year is Eddie Murphy, who the magazine estimates that for every $1 he made, the films earned an average of $2.30. Those last three movies were the forgettable "Imagine That," "A Thousand Words," and "Meet Dave."

Right behind the "Coming to America" star is Katherine Heigl, whose last film, "One for the Money," earned only $37 million for its $40 million budget.

Though she may be as popular as ever, Reese Witherspoon's recent rom-com "How Do You Know" was one of the worst performing films of 2010 and her recent flick "The Means War" also failed to deliver, putting her at #3 on the list.
