Eddie Murphy is either overpaid or dead (possibly both)



Eddie Murphy is having a tougher week than you are. Really. First, he's chasing away rumors that he's dead. An Internet hoax last week reported that the 52-year-old star of Beverly Hills Cop had died. The source of the rumors or hoax? Several Facebook messages with the message: "R.I.P. Eddie Murphy."

If that's not bad enough, today Murphy is dealing with a new report that he's the most overpaidactor in the world. According to Forbes magazine, Eddie's past three movies generated only $2.30 at the theater box office for every dollar of his salary. (Second is Katherine Heigl, with $3.40.)

Now for the real question: Can anyone name Eddie's last three movies? Well, there you go.
