It was calculated that he returns $2.70 for every dollar spent on him. Rounding up the top five are two Oscar winners, Reese Witherspoon and Denzel Washington. Where Reese gets the No. 4 spot because of her part in ‘How Do You Know’, return is $3.55. Meanwhile, Denzel, lands fifth on the list with a return average of $4.25.
