Ariel Winter might spend $227 on takeout, but the “Modern Family” actress hasn’t been packing on the pounds. Ariel, 22, continues to be snapped by the paparazzi during her COVID-19 outings – if it isn’t her grabbing Lucky Charms, it’s post office outings or drive-by parties. The latest from the ABC face saw 25-year-old boyfriend Luke Benward join her. The headlines were all about Ariel’s stunning figure, though.
Ariel has been making headlines for revisiting the 30 pounds she dropped in 2019 as a social media storm proved just how ugly celebrity trolling can get.
Click here for the full photos – scroll for a quick peek. Ariel, whose Instagram stories this week showed off home-baked muffins and entire cakes – was snapped looking trim and low-key as images showed her in skin-tight, stretch-fabric skinny jeans, plus a pale pink t-shirt. The finish was unfussy from white sneakers and a 100% makeup-free face, with Ariel also rocking the return to strawberry-blonde locks that marked 11 years of “Modern Family” ending. Caught-off-guard while exiting her vehicle might have made for your standard deer-in-the-headlights look, but the rest of the snaps saw Ariel nail it as she arrived at a studio with beau Luke.

Oh, and throwing it away. Ariel fronted media outlets in early May for admitting that she’d accidentally sliced off the tip of her thumb while attempting Greek cooking at home. Trying out new knives came to a particularly nasty end as Ariel said: “So I went to chop a peeled tomato and sliced the top part of my thumb off on a peeled tomato.”
“I was so shocked. It was more like I was hyperventilating. I was like I should be crying but I just can’t believe it,” she added, also revealing that being handed the detached tip resulted her in throwing her own body part away.
2019 saw Winter in the news after switching her anti-depressants resulted in the 30-pound loss. The girl behind Alex Dunphy then wound up front-page news after a troll wrote: “Not half as bad as all the coke/meth she uses. She literally dropped 30 ponds.[sic].”
Ariel clapped right back: “Yup… I dropped 30 bodies of water so fast…”
“And yes!! My psychiatrist switched me from my previous anti depressant that didn’t work and made me gain weight, to coke/meth!! Definitely not a new one that worked and then regulated my metabolism. Coke/meth was a controversial decision but she stands by it.”
The “Modern Family” wrap-up landed Ariel a full Teen Vogue feature on April 1, with the actress resuming talk over her weight loss – seemingly, Winter continues to receive messages regarding it. “I get so many DMs [asking] ‘What medication are you on? I want to lose weight; I want that medication,” she said, continuing:
“What I would really like for people to understand is, every medication affects everyone differently. We’re all made differently. Everything is different.”
