According to Forbes, Sofia Vergara was the highest-paid actress in the world this year. The Modern Family star was second to only Scarlett Johansson in 2019.
Vergara is best known for her role as Gloria Pritchett on ABC’s Modern Family. She has been on the show since its Pilot episode in 2009. The popular sitcom wrapped up its eleventh and final season back in April.
The Colombian born actress reportedly made $43M this year with a large portion of that payday from Modern Family. She reputedly made around $500,000 per episode.
Her part as a judge on America’s Got Talent, and her jean line is also a major contributing factor to her topping the list of highest-paid actresses.
Despite making more money last year than this ($44.1M earned in 2019), the 48-year-old actress beat Angelina Jolie to take home the top spot this year.
