1. Matthew McConaughey
You wouldn’t think someone who won an Academy Award for their role would be on this list of underpaid actors but that is exactly where Matthew McConaughey finds himself. He won the Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club and earned an astonishingly low figure. McConaughey earns seven figures per role for most films but worked his butt off for $200,000 in Dallas Buyers Club. We guess the hard work paid off as he was recognized for his skill and launched to the front of the class in terms of how much he can earn for future roles.
