Wanna hear about how people half your age are making more in a week than you will all year? No? Well, here it is anyway.
Deadline is reporting that the child stars of Modern Family are nearing a deal with 20th Century Fox TV for a salary bump after a month-long negotiation.
Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Rico Rodriguez and Nolan Gould could be banking an estimated $70,000 per episode. The negotiation for their new contracts was much more amicable than the adult stars of Modern Family, who boycotted a table read and were thisclose to taking 20th Century Fox TV to court. Julie Bowen, Sofía Vergara, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet went from $65,000 to in the neighborhood of $170,000 per episode.
"But what about the girl who plays Cameron and Mitchell's adopted daughter?!" screams no one. Five-year-old Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, who replaced twins Ella and Jaden Hiller in the role of Lily last season, won't be getting a salary increase.
Hey, Hollywood can be a tough town.
