‘Modern Family’ actress Ariel Winter opened up about her experience with undergoing breast reduction surgery last June.
The 18-year-old actress penned an essay for Motto, a division of Time Magazine, in February in which she detailed how her former 32F breast cup sized physically and emotionally hurt her.
“I came back to film season 3 of Modern Family, and I knew that I looked totally different than when we’d wrapped season 2,” she wrote. “Suddenly, I was just over 5 feet tall and was an F-cup.”
“Women are already over-sexualized, and I grew into my body so young,” she added. “I was 13, 14 years old, and I looked 19. Suddenly, people didn’t want to talk about my job — they just wanted to talk about my cleavage.”
Winter said the attention she received became too much about her body and not her work. That included some creepy advances from older male fans.
“The conversation became about my looks instead of my talent and work — everything that I didn’t want. I even started getting messages from older male fans, and let’s just say they were gross,” she said.

But the physical pain was also a major factor for the young starlet.
“It’s really difficult to be such a small girl and have so much weight on your chest,” Winter wrote. “You physically hurt. You can’t find clothes that fit right. I couldn’t find a cute bathing suit. Everything looked like I was trying to be ‘sexy.’ It didn’t help that I didn’t look like any of my friends my age.”
“I was uncomfortable and unhappy,” she said. “I chose surgery because of how I felt, not because of what anyone else thought.”
Now the actress has found relief.
“My surgery got a lot of criticism from some people, but I’m happier for it. In the end, I think it’s all about how you feel — not what other people think.”
