She's the highest-paid actress on TV, but Sofia Vergara didn't get there on her looks alone.
The Modern Family star tells Glam Belleza Latina that she's a tough negotiator.
"I think that the concept of being sexy and smart is difficult for many to grasp," she says. "Most people are more comfortable with the notion of 'sexy bimbo.' And I have to admit that I've capitalized 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."

Sofia Vergara hasn't been shy in admitting her wedding day will be a big affair, and luckily fiancé Nick Loeb is on board with whatever his future bride wants – with just one little suggestion.
"We may use Pickle Crunch as a cake topper at our wedding," Loeb, 38, jokes to PEOPLE.
The entrepreneur, who has his own food line, is often seen toting jars of his latest Crunchy Condiment product to the Emmy awards and Golden Globes while supporting Vergara, 41, and it's now a "running joke" among friends, he says.

Call her the $30 million woman.
Sofia Vergara has topped Forbes magazine's list of the highest-paid actresses on TV.
Vergara, 41, topped the list for the second year in a row, earning $30 million, thanks to a pay raise for her role on Modern Family, plus endorsement deals with brands like Diet Pepsi and Covergirl and her own line of clothing and home goods sold through K-Mart.
Her hefty bank balance puts her way ahead of the two women who came in at No. 2 on the list – Mariska Hargitay and Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco, who each raked in $11 million.
