Modern Family's Sofia Vergara has said that she loves to make money and is a good businesswoman.

Vergara is the highest-paid TV actress in America and it is estimated that she made $30 million last year through acting and her work with Diet Pepsi, CoverGirl and Kmart.

Speaking to Glam Belleza Latina magazine, she claimed that she is a smart businesswoman, "I'm not ashamed to say I love making money. I like business, and the truth is I save way more than I spend. I invest. I plan for the future.

"I have a special eye for opportunities and work harder than anyone might expect. It is fun to shock people with my business ideas. Most people just see me as a Gloria [her Modern Family character]."

She also commented on how people perceive her, "I think that the concept of being sexy and smart is difficult for many to grasp. Most people are 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."
