'Modern Family' Star Ariel Winter: Aspiring Attorney... and 'Butt Person'
Ariel Winter is quickly rising to the top of her game as part of the award-winning cast of the hit TV show “Modern Family” – and she's only 18!
Winter is not only a part of the wild success of the show, she has still higher aspirations. A recent high school graduate, Ariel accepted an offer to study at UCLA in pursuit of a law degree!
Ariel's ability to influence has come at a young age, but as she explained to Elite Daily, her ability to encourage and empower young women and men didn't come without her own struggle with self-image.
Ariel said, “Over the years, I've struggled with body confidence issues,” she reveals. “It's really important nowadays to empower young women — and young men — to feel really good about themselves, not only their appearance, but to feel good enough to speak about issues that are important to them and to stand up for themselves when necessary.”
Boasting 2.5 million followers on Instagram, her platform is wide, and people are watching. But, it's not all accolades and positivity when it comes to social media. What is Ariel's take on the rampant cyber-bullying and body-shaming online? “And for me, now I post a photo and I don't care,” Winter said. “If you're going to write something on it, whatever. If somebody doesn't like what I'm doing, you can unfollow me.”
When asked which of her features she loves most, Ariel has fun with it. “If we wanna go silly, I love my butt. I'm a butt person. I've always been a butt person.”
