The full story from Rogue Magazine:
“Ariel Winter is best known for her role as Alex Dunphy in the hit comedy series Modern Family, has grown up before our eyes, officially ringing in adulthood while celebrating her 18th birthday this past January.
At this stage, you get sort of jaded after a certain period I feel like I’ve been in the industry for so long that I have gotten to that point where people’s comments and the exposure doesn’t bother me as much,” she admits. “I mean it still bothers people when you get negative feedback for something, but it doesn’t hit me as hard as it would somebody just entering the industry.”
Multiple articles abound questioning her choice of photos on Instagram and berating her for flaunting her sexuality at such a tender age.
“It’s called being a woman in the industry,” she says. “It’s complete sexism.”
Winter says that plenty of men in the “industry” would never receive the same criticism if they posted similar photos. Instead, she says, they would probably receive laughs or applause with the press lauding their exploits as what the public expects from them.
“It’s really degrading, annoying and sad that this is what the media puts out,” she
says. “It’s disgusting to me.”
