While most of Hollywood is getting plastic titty bags installed in their chests to make their chichis bigger, 17-year-old Ariel Winter, who is best known for Modern Family and for having a demon monster of a mother, got her breasts reduced. Ariel tells Glamour Magazine that she wanted smaller chichis for many reasons. Ariel, who is 5 feet tall, got back pains standing all day, she couldn’t really find bathing suits that fit her right and she was tired of saying, “Hey, my eyes are up here,” to the Internet. Ariel says that people were constantly focusing on her chest and she didn’t want to be known as “The Breasts,” so she decided to take them from a 32F to a 34D.
Ariel says that her chest pretty much grew overnight. One day she was as flat as Blake Lively’s personality and the next morning, she had breasts and they just wouldn’t stop growing. Ariel had the reduction surgery in early June and the only Modern Family cast member she told was Julie Bowen, because they talked about it before and Julie was very supportive.
Ariel says she now feels like she has the body she was “supposed to have.” She decided to tell Glamour about it, because she didn’t want hos speculating on what she did to her body:
“I didn’t want to not tell anybody and then have another million stories [say], ‘What happened to Ariel? She looks so different.’ And I also think there’s some good that can come from [telling] my story. It’s something that I did to better my life and better my health and I think that that can benefit a lot of young girls. I have felt more happy with myself than I ever have. I am living a dream that a lot of girls my age would love to be living, and I’m aware of that. I’m really grateful that I’m able to do that and have a voice that I’m able to speak to teenagers. I don’t want to do anything to mess that up.”
She says that one big thing she noticed after having the reduction is that people have suddenly realized she has eyes now. Guy friends are like, “You look different. I know! When did you get those eyeballs installed? I never noticed those before.”
I watch Modern Family every now and again and one thing I noticed about the past couple of seasons is that they’d dress Ariel in some frumpy shit. They’d put her in the baggiest clothes and dress her like her name was Kevin Smith. So she’s probably happy that they’re no longer going to make her wear XXXXXL sweaters anymore, because it was getting to the point where they were going to throw a burlap sack on her body and make her stand in front of big props.
