Teen actress Ariel Winter recently revealed she had chosen to surgically reduce her cup size due to being "oversexualised".
The young star was applauded by women and young girls across the world who also suffer from physical pain and self esteem issues due to their large chests.
The actress, who plays Alex Dunhphy on the hit mockumentary show, told Glamour that she had surgery to reduce her cup size from a 32F to a 34D.
"That's pretty much all I was known for and that upset me," she said about her ample cleavage.
"It made me feel really uncomfortable, because as women in the industry, we are totally oversexualized and treated like objects.
"I was 15 years old with [size] F [breasts]," Winter said. "How do you navigate that?"
"Every article that has to do with me on a red carpet had to do with ‘Ariel Winter's Crazy Cleavage!' or ‘Ariel Winter Shows Huge Boobs at an Event!'"
"That's all people would recognize me by—not, ‘Oh, she does great work on Modern Family.'"
The award-winning actress concluded that after the procedure, she finally feels "right".
"This is how I was supposed to be," she said.
Ariel made her first public appearance since the interview was published at Saturday's Disney D23 Expo
Read from a 'Sofia the First' book to a group of young children, she looked happy and confident in her emerald green playsuit.
