In this year's ranking of the most profitable Hollywood actors a lot of stars, whose fees seem modest compared to their recent box office. To compile our list, we took the last three films, which starred one of the actors to June 1, 2017, leaving aside the cartoons, films, where they played a minor role, or the films that were shown at less than 2000 screens. The calculations do not take into account the movies that were released after June 1, 2017.
We then subtracted the approximate shooting budget of the global box office of each of the film, according to Box Office Mojo, and divide that number by the star's fees, to calculate the return on investment. We used data on income from the annual ranking of the highest paid celebrities of show business according to Forbes, and is not included in the list of actors, if they are not in a new film that meets our criteria, with the last billing period.

3. Scarlett Johansson
Watson pressed Scarlett Johansson in the rating due to the exorbitant profits from the latest Marvel movie. Box office movie "The First Avenger: Confrontation" and "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" exceeded $ 1 billion, to mitigate the negative effect of the recently released "Ghost in the Shell" with Johansson. The adaptation of the manga has collected only $ 169, 8 million during the shooting budget of $ 110 million against the backdrop of accusations of racial discrimination.
