"I think that the concept of being sexy and smart is difficult for many to grasp. Most people are more comfortable with the notion of 'sexy bimbo.' And I have to admit that I've capitalised on that to negotiate a couple of times, when the 'smart ones' think I have no idea what I can deliver, and I end up costing them more... I'm not ashamed to say I love making money." Sexy Colombian actress Sofia Vergara uses her assets to land her big business deals. The Modern Family beauty was recently named the highest-earning Tv star of 2013 in a Forbes magazine poll, taking home an estimated $30 million (£20 million) in earnings from her acting roles and her lucrative endorsement deals with the likes of Diet Pepsi and Cover Girl.
