Ariel Winter had been mum on her relationship with mother, Chrisoula Workman, but she sat down with Teen Vogue and opened up about being insecure and her unsupportive mother. “I had body insecurities when I was younger. I still do. Every girl has insecurities—mine were heightened at the time because my mother wasn’t supportive. Now, my sister is always making sure to tell me that I look beautiful.” Workman was accused of physical and emotional abuse against her teenage daughter (she denies the claim) and placed in the custody of her older sister.  “I didn’t know my sister much growing up, and I wasn’t really allowed to see her. I know now that my sister is the type of person I’d aspire to grow up to be like. It’s really interesting how close you can get with somebody in such a short period.”

“I’ve never had a curfew before. My life is definitely more normal—and that’ll help me grow up like I’m supposed to. Like, I always wanted to be a dancer, and now I’m taking dance classes,” she says. “And I didn’t have many friends. It was all about work. Nowadays, my sister’s like, ‘You’re supposed to have friends. You’re supposed to go out on Friday and Saturday nights.'” Where does Ariel go on her day off? “I love going to Disneyland and Six Flags,” she says. “I recently went to Six Flags with a few of my friends and my sister and brotherin- law. I could go on every roller coaster 30 times and be so happy. Sunday we have family dinner. It’s just a different experience for me because I have more of a family life. I’m really happy.”
