Ariel Winter Says She Didn’t Get Breast Reduction Surgery for You

Ariel Winter is an actress best known for her role as Alex Dunphy on Modern Family. Or at least she was, until she went through puberty and she became known to a legion of mouth breathers who want to f**k 13-year-olds as ‘tits’.

Her recent article on Motto discusses her decision to ultimately opt for breast reduction surgery.

“My life changed over the course of a summer. I came back to film season 3 of Modern Family, and I knew that I looked totally different than when we’d wrapped season 2. Suddenly, I was just over 5 feet tall and was an F-cup.”

And if that isn’t traumatizing enough for a 13-year-old, on top of that no one had anything to say about her that wasn’t tit-related.

“Suddenly, people didn’t want to talk about my job—they just wanted to talk about my cleavage. I’d go to awards shows and the next day see everyone on the Internet telling me I shouldn’t look like this and dress like that.”

On top of that, she was getting harassed by old men online. However, she said it ultimately came down to the physical and psychological pain they caused.

“It’s really difficult to be such a small girl and have so much weight on your chest. You physically hurt.”

Her choice to have breast reduction surgery was ultimately for health reasons, and not for anyone other than herself.

“I chose surgery because of how I felt, not because of what anyone else thought.” 

Good for you, Ariel Winter.
