Ariel Winter Calls Out 'Degrading' Sexism Against Women In Hollywood

The Modern Family star has opened up about dealing with criticism and sexism online


Unfortunately for celebrities, their A-list status often brings with it intrusion of privacy, criticism and abuse from the public.

But one person who doesn't care what you have to say is actress Ariel Winter.

The 18-year-old star told Rogue magazine: 'At this stage, you get sort of jaded after a certain period of time.

'I feel like I've been in the industry for so long that I have gotten to the point where people's comments and the exposure doesn't bother me as much. It still bothers people when you get negative feedback for something, but it doesn't hit me as hard as it would somebody just entering the industry,' she adds.

The Californian beauty's comments come a week after critics lambasted the star for an Instagram picture which shows her having contouring on her derriere.

Opening up about cyber-bullying and sexism she receives on social media, the four-time SAG Award winner said: 'It's called being a woman in the industry.

'It's complete sexism. It's really degrading, annoying and sad that this is what the media puts out, it's disgusting to me.

Despite the backlash, Winter believes the negativity she receives is worth the pain given how much she's continuing to inspire women to embrace their bodies.

'It's somewhat life-changing in your mind when you walk down the street and somebody recognizes you as 'that girl from TV' or 'Alex, the girl with the glasses,' but it's different than when someone comes up to you and says, 'Ariel Winter I love the things you say online' or 'I really love your character, it's inspired me so much.

'Those are the things that really impact me that I love about the exposure I get,' she concluded.

Keep doing you, Ariel.
