Ariel Winter Tells Ellen DeGeneres How Getting Emancipated From Her Mom Helped Her 'Emotionally And Physically'! Watch The Candid Interview!
She may be a part of a Modern Family on TV — but off screen, Ariel Winter has taken control over her own life ever since becoming legally emancipated.
Last year, the 18-year-old finally became an emancipated minor after a long court battle which the Department of Children and Family Services found evidence that her mom Chrisoula Workman was emotionally abusing her.
The actress opened up to Ellen DeGeneres on Monday about how she handled the emotional journey, explaining:
"It's been much better for me emotionally and physically to be on my own and have a better, safer household and support system."
As for that support system, Winter praised her older sister Shanelle Gray, who became her guardian back in 2012.
Ariel said her big sis has "been there for me through absolutely everything," and confirmed that neither of them have a relationship with their mother.
Ch-ch-check out the revealing interview (below) to hear the actress talk more about emancipation, her breast reduction surgery, and her future career plans!
Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay are actually the cutest pair!
Not to be separated just yet, the two costars made an appearance at Room's Japan premiere in Tokyo on Monday!
We can't get enough!
While the 9-year-old undeniably had the most attention-grabbing look with his bright red suit, Brie's look was just as fab…
The actress chose a lace Rodarte dress with simple, black Roger Vivier heels, all finished off with a cute updo. We think she looks pretty perf!
But (possibly) even better than their outfits were their priceless reactions to their grand welcome! Catch it (below):
It's so nice to actually see Sia in her own music video!
Not only is her dance avatar Maddie Ziegler back in the vid for Cheap Thrills, the singer appears too!
Sure she's in her wig and obscured in the background as usual, but at least she's there…
We like how simple this is — the whole thing could be done in one take on stage! And we're guessing that's the idea.
So before you see the performance on a late night stage — or on Thursday's American Idol — ch-ch-check it out (below)!
Wait, does Joe Giudice know he's going to JAIL?
In a recent interview with People, Joe played it cool when talking about his March 23 prison sentence for fraud related charges. According to the reality star, he's totally cool with being locked up for nearly four years!
Expressing his nonchalant attitude about the whole ordeal, Giudice mused:
"It's not a big deal. They tell me that the low security and the camp there are almost the same so it's no big deal."
Hmm… "no big deal"? We guess this is what J.G. needs to tell himself in order to cope with the unfortunate situation!
The New Jersey resident went on to argue that his new home isn't too bad, claiming:
"It's a military camp is what it is. It's not a high security, and anybody that's in there is basically people that have already served a lot of time basically working their years to get out. So once you are there if you screw up there, then you go back to high security."
Woah! Hopefully Joe doesn't "screw up"!
Despite missing out on years of his children's lives and seXXXy times with Teresa Giudice, the Italian is trying his best to see the bright side of his predicament. In fact, Joe is viewing his prison term as a chance at rehab!

Another one bites the dust.
Alex Pettyfer and his supermodel girlfriend Marloes Horst have broken up after two years together.
The Magic Mike star and the 27-year-old beauty both took to their individual Instagram accounts to explain their "mutual" decision behind the split — saying that their hectic schedules were interfering with their time together.
Fortunately, there aren't any hard feelings as they still "love each other dearly" and will always consider each other family.
