Major TV stars are among the highest wage earners in the world. Did you ever wonder which actress gets paid the most?
According to Forbes, Sofia Vergara has been the highest paid TV actress in the past 12 months. Her estimated earnings for that duration are $19 million.
She's probably most well known for her role in 'Modern Family', a popular Emmy-winning TV drama that has nearly 12 million viewers. In addition, she has many endorsement deals with large brands like Pepsi, Comcast, and Cover Girl. She also has her own Kmart clothing line and is also a co-partner of the media company Latin World Entertainment.
Her success is particularly impressive considering her personal struggles. In 2000, she underwent medical treatment after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
Recently, she celebrated her 40th birthday in style. Over 100 of her friends flew to a luxury resort in Mexico for the big bash.
So else was on the highest earners' Forbes list? Kim Kardashian came in 2nd with estimate earnings of $18 million and Eva Longoria 3rd with $15 million.
