Hollywood isn’t a town that takes kindly to supposed “imperfections.” Everyone is gorgeous, everyone has flawless skin, everyone is better (richer) than you or me. And if you’re not, you’re a character actor. It’s particularly difficult for young women, who are held to impossible beauty standards.
Ariel Winter’s Alex Dunphy-inspired response? God, that’s stupid.
The Modern Family star went from a size 32-F to 34-D after breast reduction surgery last June, a decision she’s “extremely happy” she made. “It’s important to talk about it,” Winter said, “because there are young girls suffering like I did, but there shouldn’t be a stigma about it.” To prove her point, she wore a strapless dress that showed her scars at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and now she’s best friends with Seal and Tina Fey.
After the event, Winter tweeted:
Guys there is a reason I didn’t make an effort to cover up my scars! They are part of me and I’m not ashamed of them at all. :) (Via)
