Ariel Winter Responds to Backlash Surrounding Her Bikini Photo
Ariel Winter had no idea her bikini photo would spark such a conversation

The actress has nothing to hide.

When Modern Family actress Ariel Winter hit the red carpet at the SAG Awards, she looked absolutely stunning. While Winter exuded confidence in the backless black gown, there was something a little different about her. For the first time since her breast reduction, the scars from her surgery were on full display.

For those of you wondering if it was a wardrobe malfunction, think again. The actress, who recently celebrated her 18th birthday, took to Twitter to explain her decision.

“Guys there is a reason I didn’t make an effort to cover up my scars,” she tweeted, “They are part of me and I’m not ashamed of them at all. :)”

Winter underwent breast reduction surgery in June of 2014, going from a 32F to a 34D. “You just feel so relieved and excited. You feel like a new person. You feel like this is how I was supposed to be,” she told Glamour of her decision.
