Sofia Vergara is the queen of the small screen! The ‘Modern Family’ star, who earned a whopping $43 million in the last year, beat out Kaley Cuoco and Mindy Kaling to land the top spot for the 5th time in a row. Check out the full list right here!
Sofia Vergara, 44, has quite a bit to be proud of! The actress topped Forbes‘ annual list of well-paid TV actresses once again, having earned $43 million this year — just $3 million less than the world’s highest paid movie actress, Jennifer Lawrence, 26. Kaley Cuoco, 30, is in second place with $24.5 million, while Mindy Kaling, 37, landed in third place, with $15 million. Click here to see the full list!
Sofia, who earned more than her male counterparts (yeah!) portrays Gloria Pritchett-Delgado on the hit show Modern Family, but her various product endorsements like Pepsi, Covergirl and Head and Shoulders helped more than double her earnings from last year, when the Colombian actress made $28.5 million. That’s a 66% increase!
On the other hand, Kaley’s salary is almost completely reliant on her role as Penny on The Big Bang Theory. Still, she earns $1 million per episode, which is hardly something to sneeze at!
We’re also thrilled to see that Priyanka Chopra, 34, has made the list for the first time. The Quantico star is somewhat new to American audiences, but she’s actually one of the most famous people in India. She starred in the Bollywood films Bajirao Mastani and Jai Gangaajal last year, and we can’t wait to see her in 2017’s Baywatch. Apart from her acting resume, she has lucrative campaigns in India for brands like the sparkling juice Appy Fizz.
Ellen Pompeo, Mariska Hargitay, Kerry Washington, Stana Katic, Julianna Marguiles and Sofia’s Modern Family co-star Julie Bowen also made the list. Together, the 15 highest-paid actresses made $208.5 million, which is $43.5 more than last year’s total of $165 million. Well done, ladies!
