Sofia Vergara once again tops the list of highest paid TV actresses in the United States. 42-year-old Colombian actress maintained her top position on list of highest paid US TV actresses for third consecutive year with an estimated earnings of $37 million.
While Tinsel Town is a hard place to make it into the A-listers group, some of the males definitely are on cloud nine in terms of fame and money.
But when you come to the females you realize that they often face the proverbial glass ceiling where they can see but cannot touch the success levels attained easily by their male counterparts.
While the actresses earned a total of $140 million, the actors hauled in sacks upon sacks of money amounting to $214 million. Yet that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any exceptions to the male chauvinist rule.
According to Forbes, the sexy and sizzlingly hot Sofia Vergara earns approximately $37 million per annum which puts her way up there on top of the female contenders for the title of Queen of Hollywood. And this is the third time in three years that she has won the accolade of highest paid actress.
Sofia is way ahead of even Ashton Kutcher who pulls in $26 million annually. Sofia Vergara earns a reported $325,000 for each episode of hit ABC comedy "Modern Family."
Sofia earns so much partly due to the commercial products she has signed contracts for and the ten thousand ads she has appeared in. The Modern Family starlet has been the face for such companies as Diet Pepsi, Cover Girl, AT&T and Head & Shoulders.
Sofia Vergara not only has her very own fragrance but is the owner of Latin World Entertainment, which is a very large conglomerate that has a multimillion budget.
Among some of the other female celebs that take the prize as far as earning oodles of greenbacks are concerned may be included longest-running TV drama Law and Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay and The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco.
