Ariel Winter has no time for her body shamers- she really doesn’t even think about them at all. The Modern Family star has become known recently for posting photos on her social media that some consider risqué. She told Entertainment Tonight though that she doesn’t put too much thought into what she posts. If she’s having fun, she wants to show her fans what she’s up to.
“Everybody is so hyped up on the fact that I post photos where my butt’s out. It’s a butt. Everyone has a butt,” she said. “I don’t think it’s crazy. It’s like, ‘Let me live! I’m enjoying my life, you’re enjoying your life, you should be posting your butt if you like it, too!”
If you’re not into it, that’s your problem. For example, she took a lot of heat for a dress she wore to her graduation party in June.
But to her haters, she said, “get a hobby.”
Dear sorry body-shamers, I looked HOT in that dress. And if you hate it, don’t buy it. But please get a hobby. XOXO Ariel #EmbraceYourBody

The world could use more people who are as confident as she is about her curves. She told ET, “I’m not going to fight with someone on my Instagram that tells me they don’t like my outfit or I should put my butt away…I’m sorry you think I should put my butt away, but just unfollow me.”
Of course, loving yourself and your body can be easier said than done. She credits her co-star with helping her learn. “I really had the greatest opportunity to have some wonderful role models, especially Sofia Vergara,” Winter said. “Working with a curvy beautiful woman that everybody looked up to and loved the way she looked… that was my inspiration to move forward and accept myself because that’s what matters.”
You go girl.
