It's no secret that Ariel Winter gives zero damns when it comes to showing off her bod.

Since day dot, she's been a role model to gals all around the world, showing that embracing her curves, and showing off her scars is TOTALLY fine.

So how did she become so confident in her skin? Well, she can thank Modern Family co-star Sofia Vergara for that. KWEEN!

In an interview with New York magazine, Ariel admits that seeing how Sofia embraced her bod, from a young age, helped her with her own body acceptance.

"Working with Sofia Vergara and growing up with her was great, because she was, you know, a really amazing, curvy role model for me," she said.

"She helped me learn to accept the way I looked and love it and dress for it, and feel good about myself."


Ariel went through puberty in the spotlight, so it wasn't always easy for her, especially since she received a lot of negativity regarding how she looked.

"I would do these weird crash diets and I wanted to changed the way I dressed so people would like me on social media, and it never worked," she explained. "It was always like, no matter what I did, I was always getting this negative, negative, negative backlash. After a while I was kind of like, if I can’t please them in any way, I might as well just start doing what makes me happy."

Go girl. Since, she has totally embraced her ~GORJ~ bod, and we absolutely love her for it.
