How Sofia Vergara’s net worth was built

You may know Sofia Vergara from her role on the ABC hit “Modern Family,” but she also has boosted her wealth by taking on endorsement deals.

In addition to her TV role as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett and product pitches for State Farm and Cover Girl, Vergara has appeared in several movies. Her first film role was in the crime comedy “Big Trouble” in 2002.

Still, acting wasn’t her first choice coming out of a bilingual school. Initially, she wanted to be a dentist.

She was discovered by a photographer while relaxing on a beach, and that led to her first on-screen role in a Pepsi commercial. That first job allowed her to branch out into other work, such as modeling and starring in a Mexican television show.

As of May 2017, Sofia Vergara’s net worth totals $120 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. In 2016, Vergara was TVs highest-paid actress, taking in $43 million.
