If Johnny Depp showed up at your door confused and asking for directions, how would you respond?

I would offer him a glass of water, some sympathy, and directions, as I would any lost traveler at my door.  I always try to be a gracious host.
It is highly unlikely he would show up in costume (although that makes for an amusing story).  In fact, it is highly unlikely – a member of his entourage might stop in.  (Grey Poupon moment?)

Let me ask you – 

What if you showed up at his house?

Edited from my answer on Quora.

Who are the most overpaid actors in Hollywood?

While there are subjective opinions on who the most over paid actors are, the one metric that is most telling is how the box office take relates to the actors pay. This separates the highly paid actor with good box office from the overpaid actor producing poor box office numbers.
Forbes has done some really good work on this:

This 2016 list does not mean that these actors were overpaid in prior years; Forbes measures it year-by-year. Some actors have a few great years, then get cast in stinker roles that diminish their box office draw, and reduce their value to the profitability of the picture. It does not mean they are “bad” actors, just not bringing in more dollars than they cost.

The real question is WHY? why do these overpaid actors keep getting work? I found some websites that attempt to answer this very question, on a “case by case” basis:

We can clearly see how actors salaries are a clear metric we can use in determining their value at the box office, and “overpaid” can be more than just an opinion, it comes with measurable numbers behind it.

These guys may have the last laugh:

Here’s hoping your acting career has you laughing all the way to the bank!

NOTE:  This is not a “dig” against your personal favorite movie star or film, it is just a way to determine if an actor is overpaid by comparing their salary to the box office.  I am a fan of most of these actors and wish they will be off this list too!
