Ariel Winter may have felt inspired by the great Quentin Tarantino when she returned to social media after splitting with her longtime boyfriend.

The "Modern Family" star posted a photo on Instagram Monday night, which was her first post in 6 days.

Posing against a wooden backdrop, Winter looks angelic with her eyes closed and a smile across her face while wearing an all-white outfit.

In one of the penultimate scenes in "Pulp Fiction," John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson's characters of Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield are in an intense standoff with two would-be suspects in a failed diner heist.

Tim Roth and Amanda Plummer play the infamous Pumpkin and Honey Bunny, and after the tables turn, Jules and Pumpkin need to make sure Honey Bunny keeps her cool.

The scene is legendary, and many of Winter's savvy fans immediately picked up on the deep reference, dropping comments in the star's IG feed to "Be cool honey bunny."


Even though she hasn't addressed the drama head-on, it seems Winter is letting everyone know that she's keeping her "cool" amid the breakup.
