Since she was first discovered on a beach in her native Colombia, Sofia Vergara has built herself a lucrative career as a model, actress, and businesswoman. Her first commercial, an ad for Pepsi that she filmed when she was 17, inspired her to pursue a career in show business, and she began attending the Creative Workshops School of Acting. After appearing in smaller TV shows and films, she landed the role of Gloria in Modern Family in 2009 and became a household name.
The role launched Vergara’s career to new heights, empowering her to pick more projects and making her an awards season darling. With the new fame came new business opportunities and sponsorship deals, helping Vergara become the highest-earning woman on television, according to Forbes, just two years after Modern Family began. Since then, Vergara’s net worth has only grown.
How much is Sofia Vergara worth?
According to multiple sources, including Celebrity Net Worth, Vergara has a net worth of $180 million as of 2023. Most of this comes from Vergara’s work on television; in 2012, she earned $19 million from Modern Family alone and by 2018, she was making $500,000 per episode, or roughly $10 million per season.
In addition to her TV and film work, Vergara also earned some of her vast wealth from her business endorsements and endeavors. Starting with a clothing collection at Kmart aimed at soccer moms, Vergara has branched out into jewelry, intimate apparel, furniture, and perfume collections. She has also been an ambassador for brands like CoverGirl, Head & Shoulders, and Diet Pepsi.
