It’s been speculated about for the last couple of months, but Modern Family actress Ariel Winter has finally confirmed that she underwent a breast reduction at the age of 17, reducing her chest size for a 32F to a 34D.

Winter admitted to Glamour magazine that she confided in onscreen mom Julie Bowen, who Winter claims ‘was supporting and understanding’ of the starlet’s decision. “It was so painful,” Winter says of her then breasts. “I had so many back problems.”

Winter seems happy with her decision, boasting to Glamour: “I have felt more happy with myself than I ever have.”

Ariel Winter Emancipated


Do you still watch Modern Family on ABC? I feel as if everyone has stopped and failed to tell me.

Ariel Winter, 17, who plays the nerdy and well-behaved Alex, daughter of Phil (Ty Burrell) and Claire (Julie Bowen), couldn’t be further away from that image if she tried. The ABC actress was officially emancipated from her mother Chrystal Workman on Friday after one of the most messiest (and longest) cases known to Hollywood. Accusations were slung in both directions. Workman allegedly tried to leak naked pictures of her eldest daughter, Shanelle Gray (Ariel’s primary carer), to further Shanelle’s career. Winter allegedly had a boyfriend four years older than her when she was fourteen and the pair regularly shared a bed. Winter was removed from her mother’s care in May of 2014 with Shanelle Gray taking guardianship over her sister.

This follows the accusations and restraining order surrounding Sarah Hyland’s relationship with Matt Prokop.

Why does the young cast of family friendly Modern Family have such adult problems?
