Modern Family star Sofía Vergara has admitted that she's greedy, saying: "I want to Take advantage of my 15 minutes of fame".

In the new June issue of Cosmopolitan the Colombian actress confesses she knew she had made it into the entertainment world way before Modern Family.

“In my 20s, I was already known in the Latina market," Vshe recalls. "When I moved to LA, I used to go to this club. At the end of the night, everybody would come outside to get their cars.

“I would be next to Leonardo Dicaprio and Justin Timberlake and my car was always right out in front! Nobody knew who I was, but the valets knew because they were Latin.”

Vergara is currently the highest-paid television actress thanks to her role as the mouthy Gloria Delgado-Pritchett.

The 40-year-old also runs a multimillion brand business that includes a line of clothes, jewelry, handbags, shoes and home items.

“I haven’t been at this level [of fame] until now. I’m greedy," she admits. "I want to take advantage of my 15 minutes.”
