Sofia Vergara is currently the highest-paid television actress in the world, according to Forbes.
Vergara has been the world’s highest-paid television actress for the past six years in a row. (Forbes’ period ran from June 2016 to June 2017.)
Vergara reportedly made a whopping $41.5 million this past year – $15.5 million more than the world’s highest-paid film actress, Emma Stone.
According to Forbes’ list of the world’s highest-paid TV actresses in 2017, Vergara’s big financial gain this year comes not only from her role on the hit series “Modern Family,” but from two licensing deals, and her uber-popular line of perfumes.
While the other women on the list have made exorbitant amounts of money this past year, none have even come close to beating Vergara’s earnings.
