Ariel Winter Opens Up About Her Emancipation, Legal Battles, & More - Watch Now

Ariel Winter opens up about her difficult childhood while making an appearance on The Ellen Show, airing later today.

The 18-year-old Modern Family actress discussed her ongoing legal battle with her mother to become emancipated and live with her older sister Shanelle.

“She’s been the best part of my life,” Ariel said of her older sister. “She really is my best friend. She’s the most important thing to me. She’s been there for me through absolutely everything. And I just love her so much. I count on her more than anything.”

When Ellen asked why she doesn’t speak with her mother, Ariel responded, “Well, it’s most definitely hard to grow up in the industry, but just grow up in any instance without a mother from a very young age. And it has been very sad for me, but at the same time it’s been much better for me emotionally and physically to be on my own and have a better, safer household and support system. I don’t really talk about the reason that I don’t speak to my mother. It’s kind of been publicized, but the reason I don’t really share that is because I want to give her the same respect that she didn’t give to me publicly.”
