Sofia Vergara and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting have been announced as the highest paid TV actresses in the world, making joint first in a recent *Forbes *list.

Banking in $28.5 million (£18.5 million) EACH between June 1, 2014 and June 1, 2015 to be the world’s highest-paid TV actresses, both ladies have their roles in Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory **to help with the big pay days.

And for Sofia, who's been enjoying her fourth consecutive year as the highest-paid TV actress, *Modern Family *is not the only thing she can thank for that - she's also got endorsement deals with CoverGirl and one with Head and Shoulders.

More stories!

    For Kaley, aside from cashing in a deal for $1 million (£650,000) per *Big Bang *episode, she too has an endorsement contract with, as she joined Sofia at the top of the list.

    With Kaley and Sofia firmly at the top of the list, among many other famous faces to make this year's Celebrity 100 of the annual list of top-paid entertainers, our favourite *New Girl *Zooey Deschanel also made the cut - with a total of 15 actresses making over $5 million (£3.2 million).

    So basically we need an endorsement deal, oh and a really popular TV show to employ us. But what are we kidding? We'd never leave heat towers.

    Moving on, in honour of our two leaderboard champions, here's Sofia being totally hilarious and "Vergara-ish"...

    While here's Kaley talking about how awkward it is to tip since it was announced - last year- how much she makes per episode of Big Bang Theory:

    Imagine how Kaley feels now about tipping?
