“Modern Family” star Ariel Winter was at the center of a controversy following her decision not to cover up the scars from her recent breast reduction surgery, The Los Angeles Times reports. The 18 year old actress was criticized in some quarters of the media and social media for wearing a low cut gown on the red carpet for the SAG Awards that revealed the scars from the surgery she underwent in June 2015.
In response to the criticism the “Sofia The First” voice actress received she responded to Jon Urbana via Twitter by stating she felt the scars were part of her and should not be hidden. The criticism came days after the actress, who plays Alex Dunphy on “Modern Family”, celebrated her birthday with cast and family members. Winter had revealed at the time of the surgery she had felt self conscious about her body before undergoing the breast reduction surgery to aid her level of confidence as she enters adulthood.
