Ariel Winter Says She Hates Getting This Comment After Her Weight Loss
Ariel Winter has gotten a lot of attention for her Instagram photos in the past. She more recently got a lot of comments over her weight loss.
There is one thing the Modern Family actress hates to hear about the change with her body. Find out what it is and more about her dealing with terrible comments.
Ariel Winter previously defended herself from a rumor about her weight loss
Fans noticed that the Modern Family actress looked different due to weight loss. Some started a rumor in the comments of her Instagram photo.
One fan accused her of “chopping up her body” and claimed her body before the change was better. Winter replied, “I appreciate you wanting to help girls love themselves the way they are, but you are also kind of cutting someone (me) down which isn’t what I think you were trying to do? I also didn’t get plastic surgery. That is also not supportive of women if you’re just assuming about the way they look.”
Someone else accused her of using drugs. “My psychiatrist switched me from my previous anti depressant that didn’t work and made me gain weight to coke/meth!! Definitely not a new one that worked and then regulated metabolism. Coke/meth was a controversial decision but she stands by it,” she wrote back sarcastically.
Winter regretted responding to negative comments in the past
Winter has been targeted with negative comments about her body and clothes for some time. She has taken opportunities to defend herself online, but she now regrets some of it.
“I try to not respond,” she told Us Weekly. “I wanted to respond positively to people for a long time because I do feel that if you are sitting and sending somebody that message, there must be something you’re not getting in your life… if you’re gonna sit on your computer and send somebody that.”
She also said, “I have had those moments where I’ve responded and I have regretted to responding to some of them, not all, but some I have regretted. I’ve been like, ‘This is stupid. It’s unnecessary.’ I do know… I think as everybody knows, when somebody is posting that comment they want an argument, you know, they want you to respond.”
She hates when people say ‘thank god she lost weight’
The actress talked to Women’s Health about her health journey. That included switching her antidepressants.
“I didn’t change my antidepressants because I wanted to lose weight, I’d just accepted it and it was fine,” she said. “I got inspired to actually find a medication that helped me as a person and did all the things I wanted it to do.”
Winter eventually found a combination that worked. “When I changed meds, and started feeling better about myself mentally, losing weight was helpful because it made me feel like I wasn’t just stuck. I hate being stuck anywhere in life,” she said.
Now the actress is focusing on gaining muscle through strength training. She opened up about one kind of comment she has been getting that she hates.
“I think the one thing that bugs me the most is when people say ‘Oh thank god she lost weight, she used to be so fat,’” she said. It doesn’t sound like she is focusing on that.
She wants to focus on the positive and that she “feel stronger and better” now that she sees results from her work.
