Ariel Winter Talks About Being Sexualized By Her Mother at a Young Age

Ariel Winter is opening up about how she felt sexualized by her mother at a young age.

The 19-year-old Modern Family actress hasn’t spoken to her mother Crystal Workman in five years after her sister Shanelle became her legal guardian. She was officially emancipated in May 2015.

Ariel said in a new THR interview that her mom dressed her in “the smallest miniskirts, sailor suits, low-cut things, the shortest dresses you’ve ever seen.”

“People thought I was 24 when I was 12,” she added. “If there was going to be a nude scene when I was that age, my mother would have a thousand percent said yes.”

Ariel also said that her mom would not let her be friends with other girls as they were the “competition.” Her on-set teacher Sharon Sacks also revealed that Ariel‘s mom “kept her out late at night at these ridiculous parties. She was 12 and 13 years old and had to be on set at 6:30, 7.”

  • Casey C

    so instead she now dresses like a hooker and calls it body positivity. she needs therapy

  • TaraTeller

    why does she insist on those ridiculous fake eyelashes? there’s nothing “body positive” about squeezing your chunky ass into clothing 2 sizes too small and looking like a hooker.

  • TaraTeller

    The thirst runs deep with this one.

    “People thought I was 24 when I was 12,” she added.” yeah, right. she was already on Modern Family and didn’t look anywhere near 24.

    unfortunately, that’s typically what happens when you’re traumatized. it’s also around the time a teenager wants to express themselves, so it’s a bit muddy how much of that is trauma, but i believe a bit is there, yeah

    there’s honesty and then there’s meanness.

    I agree with Casey C’s assessment. She continues to exploit herself and possesses zero understanding of the negative image she personifies. If you act and dress like someone who has no regard for their own sense of decency you are perpetuating the very sexualization you claim to abhor. Winters cannot have it both ways.

  • Nancy

    I think she’s trying to sell us all a song and dance. Her mother may have been a conniving witch but she has been emancipated for several years. Yet she continues to sexually exploit herself. Not buying it.

    that’s not how trauma works
