According to Forbes, Vergara made about $30 million in the past year alone, not only through her role as Gloria Pritchett on the ABC hit sitcom, but also as "the reigning queen of celebrity endorsement deals." Her ability to appeal to both Spanish and English markets has made her one of the most highly sought after celeb spokesperson ever. Just some of the brands Vergara is currently promoting? Diet Pepsi, CoverGirl, Rooms to Go, Comcast, and State Farm insurance, among others. Oh, and let's not forget her fashion, home goods, and shapewear line at Kmart, which she reportedly earned a cool $7 million advance for.
Whew! With all that under her belt, plus her busy filming schedule, it's no wonder that she is raking in the big bucks. And hey, she definitely deserves it! She has worked hard for her enormous success over the years and given her insanely long laundry list of projects, it's clear that she is now a true entertainment mogul and a serious force to be reckoned with in the industry. In fact, her top spot on the list put her ahead of some major names in TV, including Kaley Cuoco, Mariska Haritgay, and Tina Fey.
Personally, I am so happy for Vergara. It's always great to see one of my favorite famous Latinas get recognized for all of her accomplishments. Plus, I think it's safe to say we'll only continue to see continued success from Vergara. Congratulations Sofia!
