When ABC’s Modern Family first launched in 2009, Ariel Winter was just the young actress who played the nerdy and uncool Alex Dunphy while her on-screen sister was the “hot one.” Well, things have changed since then.
Winter has grown up quite a bit since Modern Family first hit the airwaves. The talented and funny actress is now a full-blown woman and, well, she’s really hot. Winter, 19, is a frequent Instagram user and she’s quite, err, liberal with showing off some of her assets. We’re not complaining, though. In fact, it’s the opposite. Alex Dunphy is a must-follow on the gram, people!
Winter was born in L.A. She scored her first acting gig at 4-years-old in a Cool Whip commercial in 2002. She made small appearances in shows like Freddie, Monk, Bones and ER before being cast in Modern Family.
She was accepted to UCLA in April 2016 and will begin attending classes in Fall 2017. “You gotta have something else you can do. I’ve always been interested in law so I think it’ll definitely be something that I’ll love to do and also go to school for,” she said of her decision to go to college.
Well, bravo to that, Ariel. We’re proud of you. To celebrate your future success, we’re going to stare at all the great pictures we found of you. Huzzah!
