‘Modern Family’ Star Ariel Winter Discusses Breast Reduction Surgery
Ariel Winter of TV's Modern Family revealed in an interview with Glamour.com that she recently underwent breast reduction surgery, and she cited several reasons for doing so.
One, she was tired of the constant media coverage and unwanted attention over her cleavage. "That's pretty much all I was known for and that upset me. It made me feel really uncomfortable, because as women in the industry, we are totally oversexualized and treated like objects," she said. "Every article that has to do with me on a red carpet had to do with ‘Ariel Winter's Crazy Cleavage!' or ‘Ariel Winter Shows Huge Boobs at an Event!'
"That's all people would recognize me by—not, ‘Oh, she does great work on Modern Family,'" she added.
Winter says she came to her decision while trying on swimsuits. "I went to a swimsuit store with my cousin a few months ago and couldn't find a bathing suit that fit me. I really felt bad about myself. I didn't feel happy," she admitted. "I just kept saying, ‘What am I going to wear? There's nothing for me to wear at the beach, at the pool.' I can't go to a party with my friends and wear the same thing as them. I have to be completely covered up otherwise I'll look a certain way that I'm not intending to look."
She has since gone from a 32F to a 34D, and she couldn't be happier about it. "It's amazing to finally feel right," she told Glamour. "This is how I was supposed to be."
