Adam Sandler has earned the top spot on Forbes’ annual list of the Top Most Overpaid Actors for the second year running, but he should take heart in knowing he’s in good company this year. Oscar winners Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks, Ben Affleck, and Sandra Bullock also made Forbes’ 2014 year-end list. And while this isn’t a list any actor wants to be included on, it’s interesting to note there’s only one actress who made it into the top 10 which is indicative of the pay discrepancy between males and females in Hollywood.

According to Forbes, the Most Overpaid Actors list is compiled using the three most recent films of the actors who appear on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 list, taking into account the budget and revenue of each film as well as the actor’s compensation to figure out who delivers the least amount of income for the studios. For 2014, those deemed most overpaid by Forbes are:

1) Adam Sandler

2) Johnny Depp

3) Ben Stiller

4) Ryan Reynolds

5) Tom Hanks

6) Will Ferrell

7) Channing Tatum

8) Denzel Washington

9) Sandra Bullock

10) Ben Affleck
