Ariel Winter, who plays Alex in Modern Family revealed some rather crushing news to Glamour.com yesterday. She got a breast reduction. That's right. And she's only 17.
"It really did happen overnight," Winter says of her breast development. "I remember being in my sister's wedding and being so flat and thinking, 'I just wish I would grow boobs!' and then overnight I did. But then they kept growing and growing and growing and it didn't seem like they were going to stop."
"I was 15 years old with [size] F [breasts]," recounts Winter.
"It's like, 'How do you navigate that?' It started to hurt so bad that I couldn't take the pain," admits the young star. "A few of my cousins have had breast reductions, so it wasn't a shock when I decided to get one." Still, Winter stresses that the decision was entirely her own and not the result of online bullying. "I got it for myself. I can't even really put it into words about how amazing it feels to really feel right."
Here are some past pictures of Ariel before the reduction:
