Here's how Modern Family star Ariel Winter deals with sexism on social media & media

News Agencies | Updated on: 10 February 2017, 1:47 IST

Ariel Winter is no stranger to sexism. She has been at the centre of numerous controversies involving her wardrobe, but she says it is, unfortunately, something that happens in Hollywood 'when you're a woman'.

Asked about some of her Instagram photographs and the backlash that she receives for them it, Ariel Winter told Rogue magazine that "it's called being a woman in the industry", reports eonline.com.

"It's complete sexism. It's really degrading, annoying and sad that this is what the media puts out, it's disgusting to me," says Ariel.

However, growing up in the spotlight has given Winter the opportunity to grow a thick skin against negative critics.

"At this stage, you get sort of jaded after a certain period of time. I feel like I've been in the industry for so long that I have gotten to that point where people's comments and the exposure doesn't bother me as much," she said.

"It still bothers people when you get negative feedback for something, but it doesn't hit me as hard as it would somebody just entering the industry."
