Ariel Winter had the paparazzi hot on her heels this weekend. The “Modern Family” actress was spotted out and about on the streets of L.A. – the latest outing from the 22-year-old comes amid photos of her carrying filming equipment and scripts despite a California-wide “Safer at home” order from the state’s Governor Gavin Newsom.
Looking low-key on Sunday – but nonetheless very leggy – Ariel was seen flaunting the 30 pounds she famously dropped in 2019. She’d also chosen the perfect outfit to show off her whittled-down frame.
Click here for Ariel’s photos. Obtained by The Daily Mail on Monday, they showed the sitcom star bare-faced as she shot the camera a direct gaze while making her way through streets. A decidedly casual wardrobe saw the actress in a baggy gray t-shirt, with a minuscule pair of blue-and-white polka-dot shorts showing off her legs and porcelain skin. Ugg boots kept things comfortable, with Ariel also sporting her return to strawberry-blonde locks – the star dubbed the look “strawberry and shortcake” earlier this year as she asked for nicknames.
Ariel wore glasses, a messy bun, and was seen clutching her possessions.
Ariel’s recent outings have proven headline-makers amid the coronavirus pandemic now seeing most of Hollywood firmly behind closed doors. The last week of March saw the star hitting up a grocery store and grabbing Lucky Charms, with March 25 marking what appeared to be a continuation of professional activities as Ariel exited a studio.
The mask and vinyl gloves arrived, though, as March 30 saw Ariel exercise COVID-19 caution during a bare-legged grocery run – again, the legs were on show as Winter wore a baggy hoodie and barely-visible shorts.
Ariel recently opened up about having her Alex Dunphy character propel her into the limelight. As 11 years of “Modern Family” ends, the actress spoke about growing up as a household name.
“It’s not very easy, just because people think that just because you’re on TV, they’re entitled to your life,” sh said.
“It’s even worse with social media, because people can just say anything they want. So that was rough because I feel like I got on social media right at the start of it becoming big, and I was really young, and people were just figuring out how to bash people online,” Ariel added.
“Being on the show for 11 years, it’s such a blessing as an actor to be able to be employed at all, but especially be employed for that long,” Ariel continued, adding:
“And to be employed with such wonderful people and to learn from such incredible actors and incredible people.”
Ariel marked the ABC sitcom’s end via a final trailer snap that left fans in tears. Eyebrows were, however, raised at the star’s see-through and underwear-style dress as she attended a wrap-up party for the show – co-star Sarah Hyland defended her following trolling backlash.
