(NEW YORK) — Who’s the top-paid actress on television? Sofia Vergara is, according to Forbes magazine, which reports that the actress earned $19 million last year.
The Colombian-born beauty, 40, stars in ABC’s hit sitcom, Modern Family. But she does much more than play Latin mother Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on TV.
Vergara is a cover girl and a businesswoman who owns her own production company. She also has a clothing line at Kmart, and has snagged multiple endorsement deals – in English and Spanish – for Burger King, Pepsi and other companies.
