first: these people weren't just picked off the streets. the have the history
second: as long as we keep going to these movies paying the (sometime ridiculous) prices, they will keep getting these fees.

Olph,
no, not really. you should look up the flop movies. actors get overpaid for any garbage.. or another example is the cast of 70s show. they were nobodies. and after a few seasons are raking in millions.

Midge,

Midge,
go look up Morbius. Leto's garbage which NOBODY SAW. Netflix is now pushing it on their list but i bet the numbers are still trash.

Midge,

Yes, really. The fact that we all know these actors says enough. Known actors get more people to watch a movie. Well known fact.
A movie with a big name actor gets more publicity and therefore more people know about it and more people will go see it. Which is partly why they are paid so much.
People respond to big names and proven concepts. There's a reason why you see "from the producers of this hit film" for example.

And the two examples you name don't prove your claim. No one is saying it's JUST a famous name that makes a movie successful. It's also about writing and other factors. "That 70's show"had good writers.
And most reviewers say "Morbius" had a bad script and characters that had no death but SPECIFICALLY say Jared Leto's acting was great.

If Brad Pitt has a new movie everyone knows about it no mater how bad it is. If an independent or smaller movie is released at the same time with no known names but has a great script people won't about it initially but have to rely on reviews and people spreading the news.

#1 And it was about 7 minutes too much. It's rare when an actor's performance can make an already terrible movie even worse.

Jared Leto reportedly received $7 million for appearing in Suicide Squad. However, despite his high salary and overhyped performance, he actually only appeared in a couple scenes in the entire film — totaling, as one Reddit user found, a little over seven minutes.
