In a recent interview, Shia LaBeouf told WalletPop, "There are certain investments that aren't
gambling at all."

Apparently, that applies to the actor himself. For the second straight year, LaBeouf topped Forbes magazine's list of Hollywood's Best Actors for the Buck. LaBeouf earned $81 for a movie for every $1 the studio put in the filmmaking kitty. Forbes determined Tinseltown's most efficient earners with a formula that took into account the actors' movies in the past five years, their estimated salary and the box office, DVD and TV sales.
