She had to supplement her meager paychecks by babysitting the children of Bob Saget (who would later become her co-star in How I Met Your Mother). This gig would pay Alyson over $300,000 for each episode. That paycheck contributed largely to the $8 million she made in 2013 alone. With that feat, she earned a spot on Forbes list of highest paid TV actresses.
