Ariel Winter Hits Back At Critics Who Say She Dresses Inappropriately!
Modern Family actress Ariel Winter has taken to Instagram to blast critics who continue to criticise the way she chooses to dress.
The 19 year old star captioned the statement simply with the word ‘rant’ and spoke about the pressure and scrutiny she faces every day from paps who follow her every move.
“I’m not trying to be pap’d everywhere I go, I am literally just LIVING, and unfortunately I can’t do that without paparazzi following me around everyday,” she expressed. “I’m not trying to show you my ass in shorts when I go to the grocery store. I’m trying to live my life.”
Winter also mentioned the comments she recently made regarding the relationship with her estranged mother. The teen revealed in a recent interview that she felt her mother sexualised her from a very young age. Winter says she was often dressed in tight or revealing outfits that were very inappropriate for her age.
“I’d also like to address the tweets I get saying, ‘You accused your mother of sexualising you yet you’re a whore.’ I was a CHILD being dressed like I was 24. I was 8-13 years old. I WASN’t an adult as I am now.”
Women are being judged daily – especially for the way they look- so we can only imagine how difficult it must be growing up under the constant scrutiny of the public eye. Winter addressed the archaic belief that women who choose to show off their bodies are stupid and shallow.
“And just because I DECIDE to show my body occasionally doesn’t mean I’m unintelligent or that I’m talentless or that I have no self respect. I have extreme SELF RESPECT.”
Winter says society needs to stop stigmatising women that choose to show off their bodies.
“We need to move on from this stigma that women who are comfortable with their bodies and their sexuality are just ‘dumb sluts.’”
On Sunday, Winter found herself on the worst dressed list at the Emmy’s for her choice of outfit. The brunette beauty went glam for the red carpet in a sexy double-slit gown, which showed off her legs.
“I was just looking for something different. I loved it and thought it was a beautiful dress,” she said on the red carpet. “I usually do cleavage and not legs so I decided to switch it up!”
