Sofia Vergara, who has successfully made the transition from model host in shows like “Control” to crossover success in TV series like “Modern Family” is enjoying the last laugh to her critics. The 42 year-old actress who is mocked about her accent and penchant for self deprecating humor, was just announced by Forbes Magazine as the top earning television actress this year. Sofia raked in 37 million, a personal best.
It marks the third consecutive year that Vergara has held the number one earning position. Her sexuality combined with a talent for comic relief has endeared her to network heads at ABC.
Sofia laughs off the detracters as she collects $325,000 per episode and is a popular endorser with top brands Diet Pepsi, CoverGirl, Head and Shoulder’s as well as AT&T.
The Colombian born actress has enjoyed an exceptional 2014 making $7 million more than last year and appearing in the Jon Favreau indie film “Chef.” It would seem that Sofia is too busy working and cashing checks to notice her dwindling detractors.
