Ariel Winter hasn’t spoken to her mother in five years, which she believes is “for the best,” she revealed in a new interview. The “Modern Family” actress told The Hollywood Reporter she was thrust into the spotlight by her allegedly controlling stage mom, Crystal Workman.
Winter accused her mother of sexualizing her as a child, dressing her up in “the smallest miniskirts, sailor suits, low-cut things, the shortest dresses you’ve ever seen. People thought I was 24 when I was 12,” she said. “If there was going to be a nude scene when I was that age, my mother would have a thousand percent said yes.”
