Sofia Vergara Still Has Bags of Money
After raking in $37,000,000 this year, the Modern Family star and Maxim Hot 100 staple mounts a three-peat as TV’s Top-Earning Actress.
In the tenth season of Friends, Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow each made a cool $1,000,000 per episode. At almost $1,300,000 in 2014 dollars, that sum dwarfs Modern Family star Sofia Vergara’s $325,000-per-episode pay.
But Sofia Vergara, Maxim cover model and Hot 100 staple, has a head for business like no other actress on television. She holds endorsement deals with Head & Shoulders, Diet Pepsi, Kmart and Covergirl, and is a founder of the mammoth Latin World Entertainment. With so many pots on the stove, Vergara, Inc., hoovered up $37 million this year alone, making her far and away the highest-earning actress on television (SVU queen Mariska Hargitay came in a distant second, with $13 million).
All this was enough to propel the Colombian femme fatale to first on Forbes’ list of top-earning actresses for the third year running.
