Ariel Winter really doesn’t care what people think of her social media habits.
The 19-year-old Modern Family star recently opened up about some of the backlash she gets when she posts body-confident photos of herself.
“I feel like people put so much emphasis on it. Guys, all the time, go on their Instagrams and take pictures nude with guitars in front of their stuff,” Ariel told Yahoo.com. “No one says anything. Nobody cares. When we try to be free and post what we want, it’s like, look at that slut on social media. That’s not what it is. We’re proud of our bodies. We’re proud of who we are. We’re made the way we are. Why do we care? If I take a picture and I think it looks good — if it’s a little revealing, whatever.”
“If people don’t like it, unfollow me,” she added. “If you’re so offended, why do you look at it? Don’t take the time to hate on me. Just unfollow me and follow someone who covers every part of their body to their toes. I don’t care.”
Ariel also shared, “I try and feel confident all the time. It’s hard to. I’m still a teenage girl, and being a teenage girl is hard. I try my best to feel confident regardless. I had a great role model in my sister. She never not feels confident. She tried to teach me to have that confidence in myself at all times, not just when I get my hair and makeup done.”
“I love the term, it’s great. But I think people put too much pressure on people to be perfect and to portray that image, when really what we should be aspiring to is having role models that should be themselves because people make mistakes,” Ariel said (via People). “They are human, and I think that’s really important. That’s what I aim to be is just me.”
Ariel Winter has a confession… her baby voice freaks out everyone around her!
The 19-year-old actress made an appearance on Conan last week and revealed that even her boyfriend Levi Meaden is uncomfortable when she uses the voice, and she even does it on purpose.
When Conan asked about her using her own voice for the new Smurfs movie, Ariel said that they didn’t want her to use a different voice, just her own. Then she dished, “I make this baby voice that really freaks out my friends and my boyfriend all the time. It’s kind of fun for me to make them super uncomfortable.” Watch below!

Ariel Winter has nothing but amazing things to say about her older sister Shanelle.
The 19-year-old Modern Family star took to Instagram for #NationalSiblingsDay and posted a cute photo of them together.
“Happy Siblings Day to this beautiful human that I’m lucky enough to call my sister,” Ariel wrote. “You are my best friend and my rock. I’d be absolutely lost in this world without you. Thank you for being the most incredible sister. Love you more than anything!”
A couple years ago, Shanelle was given custody of Ariel when she got emancipated from her mother over claims of abuse.
