Ariel Winter Turned To Sofia Vergara When Body 'Changed Drastically Overnight'

Ariel Winter says she turned to her 'Modern Family' co-star Sofia Vergara (photosSofia Vergara photos) when she developed her curves and her body seemingly changed overnight.

"I had a great role model in Sofia growing up, with her being a curvy woman that was super proud of who she was and what she looked like," Winter tells SELF.

"She could see that I was struggling a little bit with how to deal with my body, and was always trying to give me advice, like, 'Here are some brands that would look good on our body type,' or 'Wear whatever you want, and feel good about yourself.'"

"Growing up in the spotlight was quite possibly the worst for my self-esteem," she says. "I had a hard time finding confidence within myself."

When I started the show, I had a completely different body than what happened overnight at 12 years old. I was stick thin, I had no chest, I had no butt — I had nothing. I was totally flat, and I was so sad about it."

"Then automatically, overnight, my body changed drastically. I was a D cup and had a bigger butt, and my waist was expanding. Everything was getting bigger. I automatically got this hate and judgment online."

"It was hard for me to not fall prey to wanting to change the way I felt and the way I did things and the way I looked because of what other people said."

"But as I got older, I started to realize that as long as I'm positive in my life and as long as I feel good about my decisions and stick to how I feel and the things I want to do, that's what's most important. And that's what's going to get me through in life."

Now, Winter is brimming with self-confidence and has proudly displays her curves whether it be on the red carpet or in a bikini.
