With his animated movie Megamind taking in mega-millions and topping the box office for a second week in a row, what else can Will Ferrell do but welcome the dubious distinction of being named Forbes magazine’s “most overpaid” actor?

“Isn’t that the whole point?” he asks PEOPLE at the launch of 7-Eleven’s “Coffee Cup With A Cause.” “I mean, aren’t we all striving to be overpaid?”

Apparently, it’s not just about making it anymore – it’s about making it and then having someone say your overcompensated for doing so.
