“Everybody is so hyped up on the fact that I post photos where my butt’s out. It’s a butt, and everyone has one. I don’t think it’s crazy” said Winter on the red carpet, as she ensured she was just living her life.

The star’s short-shorts and crop tops had been criticized in the last months, especially when she wore high duke denim shorts and an olive green top that showed the star’s cleavage. A few months back, the star addressed haters on her Twitter account after she posted a picture of her graduation party dressed in a skin-tight nude dress with an under-boob cut.

Winter assured she looked “hot in that dress” after body shammers filled her Instagram account. The star’s body confidence hasn’t always been present, and as she states it has “been a long way” especially by growing up under the public eye, she didn’t felt confident showing off her curves.

Winter ensures one of the main reasons she is so confident right now is because of co-star and bombshell Sofia Vergara, who has been an inspiration and a supportive friend when it comes to the star’s curves.

Ariel told Entertainment Weekly that working with a beautiful curvy woman that everyone looks up to, had a great impact on her self-love, confidence and inspiration as she stated the most important thing was accepting herself.
