While Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas don’t seem particularly bothered to wear masks when out and about during a pandemic, other celebs are taking the CDC guidelines seriously. That includes Ariel Winter of Modern Family, who was papped running errands in Los Angeles with her mask firmly in place.
Winter was casual, cute and comfortable in leggings and a sporty top, and while stopping at CVS, she stopped to give some cash to a homeless person. Los Angeles has been hit particularly hard by COVID-19, causing a rise in homelessness by 14.2%.
Like many in quarantine, Winter has opted for a casual look for running her errands. Winter tends to cause a splash with her outfits, opting to show some skin. People seem to have a problem with this considering her child star status, a fact that bothers Winter.
“People on the internet really suck. It bothered me for so many years — I mean, it still does. It never goes away. When someone calls you a ‘fat slut,’ you’re not feeling happy about it. It doesn’t matter what you look like now, it doesn’t matter what you looked like then. You’re still going to read that and be like, ‘Oh, that sucks.’”
“I feel like that [pain] never goes away. People are like, ‘How do you get that to go away? It doesn’t bother you at all anymore.’ Again, that’s missing the point. What I’ve said is, I’ve learned to deal with it more. It’s a journey of being confident enough to look at that and evaluate my opinion of myself, which I’m not fully at yet. I’m still working there.”
“This is new territory for me. I was doing something very specific for so long. Now I have to reset my mind and retrain myself to be in that place of, ‘All right, I am ready to look for the next thing.’ I am ready to work. I am ready to do everything I can. I am ready to be in the right mindset to go in there again and be able to face the rejection that will come, and be able to move past that and go to the next audition and be ready for it. And be ready for things in my personal life. Just living.
I want to stay the same person I am. It’s way more rewarding at the end of the day. I want to stay the person I am, work hard, and see what happens.”
