'Modern Family' star Sofia Vergara: 'I'm not ashamed to say I love making money'

By Gina DiFalco,

Modern Family star Sofia Vergara is opening up in a new interview about her love of making money. She was named the highest paid television actress by Forbes, beating out her competition from June 2012 to June 2013.

Vergara spoke to GlamLatina and said she’s “not ashamed” to admit “I love making money."

Not only is she on one of the most successful shows on television, she also has endorsement deals with various brands such as CoverGirl, Diet Pepsi, and Kmart.

"I think that the concept of being sexy and smart is difficult for many to grasp," she went on to say, adding it’s “fun to shock people.”

"Most people are more comfortable with the notion of 'sexy bimbo.' And I have to admit that I’ve capitalized on that to negotiate a couple of times,” she said. “When the 'smart ones' think I have no idea what I can deliver, I end up costing them more."

Vergara made $30 million last year, and the sky’s the limit for this year.
