9. Ben Stiller - Comic Ben Stiller returns $6.50 for every dollar he is paid. His film from last year, "Tower Heist," which co-starred Eddie Murphy, earned $153 million on a $75 million budget, Forbes said. But don't worry about Stiller. He's working on "Zoolander 2" for 2014, which may be as big a hit as the first film in 2001, which he also directed.
