Forbes Reveals Their Top Paid Actresses List & Sophia Vergara Tops The List

Just days ago, tv creator and producer, Shonda Rimes spoke of her success, revealing herself as TV’s highest-paid showrunner, in an effort to encourage women to be more proud of their earnings. 

Now, Forbes is revealing their newest list of TV’s highest earning actresses from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018.

Sofia Vergara topped the list as the highest paid actress on the small screen, with a total of $42.5 million over the Forbes scoring period. Not only did Vergara lead the pack for the women, but she also made more than any man on TV as well. 

The list revealed an interesting point for men and women in the TV business in comparison to their counterparts in movies. According to Forbes, the top 10 highest paid actresses combined for a total of $168.5 million in earnings. This number can be compared to the $186 million that the males earned. This number showcases a very small gap in earnings between men and women on TV, a fact that just does not exist for movie stars. 

Outside of Vergara, actresses like Ellen Pompeo and Kaley Cuoco also made the list. 14 of the top 15 highest paid TV actors and actresses all came from Modern Family and the Big Bang Theory.
