Reese Witherspoon is in the top 10 of Forbes' most overpaid actors in Hollywood.

Forbes magazine just released their annual list of celebrities who are the most overpaid in Hollywood. And 9 of our favorite celebrity parents are in the top 10!

Just coming off a failed TV show, Charlies Angels, where she served as executive producer, Drew Barrymore tops the list, making just 40 cents per dollar earned. Though not a parent, she is followed by 9 of our favorite celebrity parents including Will Ferrell, Eddie Murphy, and Reese Witherspoon.

Take a look at the full list below and see where your favorite ranks!
