Sofia Vergara must love when paychecks are passed out for her work on "Modern Family."
That said, this is the second year in the last two that Vergara hovered over the rest of her contemporaries on the Forbes list, with Mariska Hargitay Kaley Cuoco tied for second place. Each of these thespians, both of whom primarily show themselves as artists on the tube, were able to earn $11 million in a single year.
That's lot of bucks. However, in Hollywood dollars, this sort of remuneration for high profile roles on high profile shows is the norm rather than the exception.
Meanwhile, four females made $10 million dollars in 12 months.
Those ladies included Tina Fey, Bethenny Frankel, Melissa McCarthy, Ellen Pompeo and the Kardashian sisters with Kourtney, Kim and Khloé counted as a collective unit and as actual actors instead of merely reality stars.
Rounding out the top 10, Cobie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan, Amy Poehler, Zooey Deschanel, Courteney Cox and Kerry Washington were also on the Forbes list that came out on Sept. 4 and that crowned Colombia beauty Sofia Vergara as the highest paid TV actress for the second year in a row.
Talk about making bank. Vergara did that and then some. Wow, what a salary she makes for her ability to play a ditz. How ironic.
