Sarah Hyland Says She Tried to Act as a 'Big Sister' to Ariel Winter

Ariel Winter is someone who feels comfortable in her body and is quick to shut down trolls and body-shamers online — and her former co-star Sarah Hyland likes to think that she had a positive influence on her.

“I like to think we — me, Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara — helped her be confident with her body and herself,” the 26-year-old actress told People in an interview, citing the fact that Ariel was so young when she joined the show.

“I mean, she was 11 years old when I met her. I was 18. I tried to be a good role model for her, and a true older sister for her because she’s such a sweet little girl.”

It’s amazing that Ariel had so many positive female role models to look up to during filming!
