Although she is doing quite well in the film industry, Ariel Winter believes she has a Plan B to fall back on. So she declared her interest in enrolling at UCLA in the fall of 2017, perhaps to study law, which has always interested her. The award-winning American actress, singer, and dubbing artist is known for her roles as Alex Dunphy in the comedy series Modern Family among other roles, including those to which she lent her voice.
The actress was just four years old when she stepped into the limelight and has remained in the spotlight ever since. Thanks to her talent and outspoken personality, she has gained a large fan base around the world. In the following sub-categories, you can learn more about the beautiful actress.
Ariel Winter Age and Early Life
The star of the modern family was born by Crystal and Glenn Workman on January 28, 1998, in the city of Los Angeles, California. Two of their siblings – Shanelle and Jimmy Workman – are also successful as actors in the entertainment industry. Ariel Winters is of Greek descent on her mother’s side and bears the Greek name Eleftheria, which means “freedom”.
However, she cannot speak the language but can identify with the basics. Perhaps as a result of her early contact with the star cult, Ariel Winters was taught at home until she was 14, after which she enrolled in a private school in Los Angeles.
At the age of four, Ariel Winter took part in a Cool Whip commercial that marked her entry into the world of entertainment in 2002. Before her leading role in the series “Modern Family” (2009), the actress made her television debut in an episode of “Listen Up!” as well as in other series such as “Freddie”, “Monk”, “Bones” and “ER”, all of which enjoyed remarkable commercial success.
Her voice can be heard as that of Gretchen in the animated children’s show Phineas and Ferb. Other of her voice roles include Marina the Mermaid in Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Sofia in Sofia the first to premiere in Disney Junior in 2013. Ariel also lent her voice to the character of Penny Peterson in the Dreamworks animated film Mr. Peabody and Sherman (2014) and also in Disney’s Bambi II and Blue Sky’s Ice Age: The Meltdown.
Winter’s career is not without appearances in feature films. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Speed Racer, Duress, Opposite Day, and Fred 2 are just some of her feature film successes. Her starring role in the film The Chaperone earned her the 2012 Young Artist Award in the category Best Actress in a Feature Film. From 2009 to 2015 Ariel Winter was nominated for ten awards, of which she received five.
Ariel Winter’s Relationship With Her Mother
Contrary to what one might have expected, the actress and her mother Crystal have a tense relationship with each other. The mother tried to take advantage of her status as an actress by letting her do things that girls her age can only dream about. According to Ariel, she was sexualized at the tender age of 7 and was forced to dress indecently, which made her look and act older than her age. She claimed that her mother did not bat an eyelid before giving her consent to a nude scene.
The situation became so bad that her older sister, who was already an adult, applied for guardianship in October 2012. In her report, her sister Shanelle Workman claimed that her mother had become a source of physical and emotional abuse for young Ariel. Although the case continued for some time, Shanelle was able to obtain guardianship for Ariel on 5 May 2014, permanently separating Ariel from the presence of her mother. In 2015 Winter announced on Twitter that she was officially emancipated.
While the actress is currently a subject for Levi Meaden, she has had other relationships in the past. In 2011, she had a relationship with Australian actor Callan McAuliffe, then she was with American actor Cameron Paletas, a relationship that lasted from 2012 to 2013 and ended with Laurent Claude Gaudette between 2014 and 2016.
Currently, Ariel Winter and her current boyfriend Levi Meaden live together in Los Angeles.
