Ariel Winters talks sexism, hollywood life & more on Rouge Magazine!
Ariel Winter is best known for her role as “Alex Dunphy,” in Modern Family. But she’s been acting since she was as young as 8-years-old. Winters is very familiar when it comes to acting in TV commercials, TV series (Modern Family) and she’s even done voice animation.
She’s a gorgeous lady with a huge personality and she’s the type of person that likes to stand up for our rights. Recently Ariel Winter’s was interviewed on The Rouge Magazine and she didn’t hold back when talking about sexism. She said:
“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 that 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. I don’t consider myself a child star – it kind of has the negative connotation that it ends at a certain point. It’s like if you’re a ‘child star’ and then you get older, you kind of disappear. However, for me, I’ve been acting since I was very young so I was a child actress. I’m lucky that I got my breaks early in life.”
And when she was asked about the photographs she posts on Instagram and the grief she gets from people. She 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.”
Truthfully, we’ve seen her point because many guys (seem) to post topless photographs with their pants pulled low and they get tons of comments but if a woman is showing a little cleavage, she’s immediately a “slut.” And that’s not how it should work because that’s just pure sexism and that’s what’s wrong with this world.
On a lighter note… When Ariel was asked about her life and growing up in the limelight. She said:
“It’s somewhat life-changing in your mind when you walk down the street and someone 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. Then there’s the other exposure that can be negative, regarding red carpets and the things that I wear.”
