5 of 10: Shia LaBeouf comes in at No. 5 on Forbes' 2011 list of Best Actors For The Buck. His films earn about $29.40 for every dollar he is paid, the magazine says.

LaBeouf is best known for his role as Sam Witwicky in the 'Transformers' action films. The third movie, 'Dark of the Moon,' has earned more than $1.1 billion since it was released in June 2011, generating a total of more than $2.6 billion for the film franchise.

In 2010, he appeared alongside then-girlfriend Carey Mulligan and Michael Douglas in the drama movie 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,' which earned more than $134 million in global box office sales. LaBeouf can be seen next in the film 'Wettest County,' a crime drama starring Jessica Chastain, Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy that is due out in April 2012. LaBeouf is also filming 'The Company You Keep,' a thriller starring Robert Redford, Stanley Tucci and Anna Kendrick.
