Ariel Winter is 18 now, which means that she’s free to make almost all the grown people mistakes she wants. Since we are officially in The Holiday Zone and every lonely trick is working double time to make sure they aren’t solo at Christmas dinner, Ariel has come out publicly with her relationship to an ostensibly established star, 29-year-old Levi Meaden. Levi played Drew in The 100 and he’s currently in something called The Aftermath on SyFy. Sure. He’s giving me sporty Evan Peters and I’m not totally mad at it.
UsWeekly reports that a Friendsgiving celebration served as their Coming Out Cotillion.
The pair even celebrated Thanksgiving together with close pals. Winter’s friend Jack Griffo captioned a Snapchat of the pair sitting down to dine together with the caption: “Family dinner friends giving that’s my girl w her man.”
Levi’s rep confirmed their relationship to E! after these photos and earlier rumors that they were, you guessed it, “looking cozy” together. Ugh.
I am also a 29-year-old and I have trouble believing I’d find anything appealing about dating a barely-legal. For one, we couldn’t go to bars together and my mind can’t even fully comprehend that. My brain is basically squishy trash floating in a glamorous pickle jar thanks to the sweet nectar, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I bet 18-year-olds have great memories and constantly remind you that you already told them that story, and that you definitely said fuck-words in front an elderly couple last night, and so on. Hard PASS from me.
Here’s more of derp(ier) Evan Peters and his barely legal rich girlfriend walking in the rain.
