Released every year, the Forbes list takes a look at how much money actors return at the box office for every dollar they get paid. In order to do this, analysts take a look at the last three big movies the actor starred in prior to June 2016. From there, they add up the operating income of each of the films and then divide that by how much they estimate the star got paid to appear in the film.
Based on Forbes’ calculations, Evans returned $135.80 in box office sales for every $1 he was paid, thanks to starring in big films like Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Captain America: Civil War.
Finally, Fellow Avengers star Scarlett Johansson came in third on this year’s list, returning $88.60 for every $1 earned.
All in all, it definitely seems like action-packed movies made for the best return investments in Hollywood this year!
