When it comes to the perks of celebrity life, sometimes is becomes apparent that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Sure, their lives seem glamorous but it can’t be easy living under such intense scrutiny. Stars are often subject to unsolicited criticism, which isn’t always constructive. This can take its toll, especially on those who face such attention from a young age. Ariel Winter and Sarah Hyland are examples of child stars who grew up in the public eye. Winter and Hyland are two of the stars of hit comedy Modern Family. The pair play sisters on the show and have practically grown up in front of the camera.
Sadly, these two young women have also been at the receiving end of hurtful body shaming comments. Ariel Winter received significant backlash over this photograph taken when she was celebrating her high school graduation and acceptance to UCLA. Online trolls discussed her body and appearance, potentially souring a happy moment.
However, brave Ariel was quick to shut down the negativity and swiftly took to social media to respond to these rude comments with a defiant message.
“Dear sorry body-shamers, I looked HOT in that dress. And if you hate it, don’t buy it. But please get a hobby. XOXO Ariel #EmbraceYourBody.”
More recently, tongues started wagging again about Ariel’s outfit choice. In May 2017, she attended an Emmy event for Modern Family in North Hollywood, California. Some observers criticised her outfit choice for being too revealing and over-the-top as the other cast members were dressed much more casually than she was.
Again, Ariel stood up for herself and refused to be bullied and also included a message of support for others, advising them not to “let anyone stifle who you are and how you express yourself”.
When will body shamers ever learn? Everyone’s body is different and some might be on a health journey that isn’t evident to the public, so picking on them is invasive at best and cruel at worst. Unfortunately, body shaming continues to be a problem and Ariel’s co-star Sarah Hyland has also had to deal with such comments.
