Winter, who typically wears makeup in her posts, told Entertainment Weekly in May that her confidence in her appearance “grew over time.” The actress is now known for promoting a body-positive message.
“I’ve been through a roller coaster with myself definitely, growing up in the public eye,” she admitted. “But I think now, as I’ve gotten older … I’ve had so many people around to help me learn to accept myself.”
“It’s a journey for everybody to find a way to be able to love themselves completely and never be insecure,” the star added. “That’s what I want to be in the future.”
Winter shared a bathtub scene from her movie Dog Years on Wednesday. The actress is best known for playing Alex Dunphy on Modern Family, which will return for an eighth season in September.
