Vergara: Television’s Highest Paid Actress for a Third Straight Year

It’s mo’ money, mo’ honors for Sofia Vergara

For the third straight year, the 42-year-old Colombian actress and Modern Family star tops Forbes’ list of the television’s highest paid actresses.

Sofia Vergara

Vergara reportedly earned an estimated $37 million between June 2013 and June 2014, according to the financial magazine. That’s more than the top-earning television actor, Ashton Kutcher ($26 million).

While the actress earns a reported $325,000 per episode on her Emmy-winning ABC comedy series, the bulk of her earnings come from her lucrative endorsements and licensing deals.  Vergara is the face of Diet Pepsi, CoverGirl, Head & Shoulders, AT&T and the medication Synthroid.

She’s the also the co-founder of Latin World Entertainment, a multi-million dollar empire. The talent management and entertainment-marketing firm recently teamed up with CNET to launch a Spanish-language tech news site. Vergara’s brand also continues to grow thanks to her 12-year deal with Kmart, a strategic move to better appeal to Hispanic shoppers.

Earlier this year, she also launched her first fragrance for HSN and starred in the indie movie Chef, which received rave critical reviews and became the only summer indie to hit $30 million at the box office.

Vergara’s annual take is up from last year’s high of $30 million and her $19-million estimate in 2012.

Sheen Gets Cleared for “Anger Management”

Charlie Sheen hasn’t had the most positive year… But he seems to be turning things around.

The rights to the 46-year-old part-Spanish actor’s new television series “Anger Management,” a version of the hit Adam Sandler/Jack Nicholson film, has been purchased by FX. The cable network has picked up 10 episodes, with the option to buy another 90 additional episodes if the show is successful. Sheen will play Nicholson’s role—an infuriating therapist who brings out the rage in his patients.


After getting fired from his hit CBS series last winter, the former “Two and a Half Men” star, the star sobered up and announced in July that he’d be starring the “Anger Management.”

“I chose ‘Anger Management’ because, while it might be a big stretch for me to play a guy with serious anger management issues, I think it’s a great concept,” said Sheen at the time.

Sheen was roasted in a hit special on Comedy Central in September, and appeared at the Emmys to present an award and wish his old “Two and a Half Men” cast members and replacement Ashton Kutcher the best of luck in the new season. They killed off his character in the first episode of the re-worked series this fall.

“Anger Management” will premiere next summer on FX.
