Ariel Winter seems to be a very happy teenage lady these days!
But it wasn't always that way!
In fact, Ariel had some pretty severe body insecurities, and a big reason why was because of her mom!
Here's what she said:
"I had body insecurities when I was younger. I still do. Every girl has insecurities — mine were heightened at the time because my mother wasn't supportive. Now, my sister is always making sure to tell me that I look beautiful . . . It's about learning to love yourself."
Winter is slowly but surely building her confidence up. And one of her biggest supporters is her sister!
"I didn't know my sister much growing up, and I wasn't really allowed to see her. I know now that my sister is the type of person I'd aspire to grow up to be like. It's really interesting how close you can get with somebody in such a short period. My life is definitely more normal — and that'll help me grow up like I'm supposed to. Like, I always wanted to be a dancer, and now I'm taking dance classes. And I didn't have many friends. It was all about work. Nowadays, my sister's like, 'You're supposed to have friends. You're supposed to go out on Friday and Saturday nights."
We definitely agree with her sister!!!
Teenagers are supposed to go out on the weekend to blow off some steam! Not during the week though! School nights are for studying!!!
And what does Ariel do on Sunday nights? She explained:
"Sunday we have family dinner. It's just a different experience for me because I have more of a family life. I'm really happy."
We're so happy that you're happy!!!
Keep it up, lady!
Enjoy these years - you absolutely deserve it!!!
