Ariel Winter: Driven Off of Twitter by Hateful Harassment

While Instagram is still happily showing Ariel Winter getting her butt grabbed, the Modern Family star has taken a step back from Twitter.

She is, at least, explaining her absence, but it’s not good news.

Ariel has been driven off of the social media platform because she is absolutely exhausted by the constant harassment. And she might drop Instagram next.

In a statement to Entertainment Tonight, Ariel Winter’s rep explains why the Modern Family star has suddenly vanished from Twitter.

“Ariel has taken a break from Twitter,” the statement explains. “And engaging with commenters on her other platforms.”

You can engage with fans on just about any platform, but Twitter sometimes feels like nothing but that — and it can wear you out.

Ariel is stepping back “because of the constant negativity she experiences,” the statement says.

People on the internet can be cruel — especially if you are famous and especially if you are a woman.

“She needs a moment to breathe and enjoy herself,” the statement continues.

Of course. Everyone, no matter how famous, deserves that.

And the statement makes clear that Ariel wants to be able to live her life “without judgement.”

Good for her.

Ariel did not only speak up through her rep.

In her Instagram story, Ariel warned fans that she is “in the process of deleting all social media.”

Fortunately, her Instagram remains up — for now.

Back in 2016, Ariel was singing a different tune when she spoke to Entertainment Tonight about her use of social media.

“I don’t really think I’m telling myself, ‘You should post this, you shouldn’t post that,’ I feel like I’m just having fun,” Ariel said at the time.

She explained why she offered so many glimpses into her life, saying: “I like my fans to see what I’m doing.”

“I’m not going to fight with someone on my Instagram that tells me they don’t like my outfit or I should put my butt away,” Ariel said.

That’s good. It’s her body and, within Instagram’s rules of use (which totally allow butts), she can share whatever photos of it she likes.

“I’m sorry you think I should put my butt away,” Ariel said in 2016. “But just unfollow me.”

That is good advice. Unfortunately, not advice that many people take.

Instead, there are certain trolls who thrive off of eliciting a reaction — especially a negative one — from famous women on the internet.

These trolls are drawn to beautiful women, but for some reason seem determined to shame these women for showing (or even having) the bodies that these trolls often admire.

Of course, these trolls may also tell beautiful women that they’re ugly, or say anything else to hurt that person’s self esteem.

It doesn’t make sense, but vicious cruelty on the internet doesn’t have to be logical to drive people from the internet.

Look at how Star Wars actress Kelly Marie Tran was driven from Instagram by harassment. And now, Ariel Winter’s been driven away from Twitter.

We imagine that what’s changed for Ariel Winter since 2016 is that trolls are more emboldened than ever before. It’s also that she probably got tired of the hate.

What seems like a bracing difference of opinion at one point can get really old two years later.

Additionally, Ariel is happily in a relationship with Levi Meaden. A lot of hateful comments have been directed at their romance, at him, and his career.

It can be a lot harder to weather comments about someone you love than it is to see hate directed at you.

We hope that this well-deserved rest does Ariel a lot of good. We’ll certainly miss her tweets.

Ariel Winter: Everyone Watch My Boyfriend Grab My Butt!

There was a time when Ariel Winter’s boobs were the star of her Instagram page (and, arguably, the entire internet), but lately, the Modern Family star has been posting much more subdued content.

Maybe it’s the fact that she’s in a committed relationship with Levi Meaden.

Or maybe Ariel feels that the focus on her racy pics distracts from her acting career.

Or maybe she finally got sick of constantly battling trolls, and you incel nerds ruined the best thing the internet has given us since the block button on Twitter!

Sorry, we got a little carried away there.

Fortunately, Ms. Winter still makes time to flaunt her assets for the benefit of her 3.9 million followers.

Of course, these days, she tries to involve her boyfriend in her glorious thirst traps.

As you can see, Ariel and Levi attended celebrated the Fourth of July by attending one of those rich people parties where everyone dresses the same.

Because getting dressed for a massive gathering isn’t stressful enough, some people feel the need to make up ridiculous dress codes for their parties because apparently they miss prep school or something.

Sorry, got carried away again.

Anyway, Levi and Ariel are participating in what appears to be a rather joyless public butt grab.

Seems like one of those photo concepts that sounded like a good idea and didn’t really work out in execution, but someone decided to post it anyway.

Adding to the weirdness is the fact that Ariel’s dad was in attendance at this soiree:

Look, she’s a grown woman.

We suppose it’s fine if she wants to have her boyfriend grope her in broad daylight with her dad standing a few feet away.

But it sort of seems like one of those behaviors that’s acceptable coming from a celebrity but would earn any normal person some serious side-eyes.

But hey, what’s the point of being rich and famous if you can’t engage in behavior that would be weird for anyone else?

Ariel’s 20 years old and loaded in a way that few us can imagine. 

We should count ourselves lucky that she’s not, like, covered in Pokemon tattoos or spending all her money on thetan readings or some crap.

Ariel Winter Mourns Jackson Odell, Shares Heartbreaking Message

Shock and sadness continues to emanate around Hollywood when it comes to the death of Jackson Odell.

As detailed over the weekend, the young actor and musician was found dead on Friday at what most outlets have reported as a sober living facility.

(Other outlets have written that the 20-year old was actually found dead inside his own home.)

Best known for his role as Ari Caldwell on eight episodes of The Goldbergs, Odell also appeared on episodes of Modern Family, The Fosters and Nickelodeon’s iCarly.

His movie resumes includes 2011 children’s movie Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer.

Over the past couple years, Odell had transitioned from acting into the music, having penned numerous tracks for the soundtrack of the 2018 movie Forever Your Girl, including the Lauren Alaina hit, “Wings of an Angel.”

Numerous celebrities and close friends have shared their condolence over social media since this tragic news broke, with Odell’s family releasing a statement that reads as follows:

The Odell family has lost our beloved son and brother, Jackson Odell, on Friday.

He will always be a shining light and a brilliant, loving and talented soul. He had so much more to share. Our family will always carry that truth forward.

Our wish is that the rest of the world who knew and loved him does as well.

family message

Along with his loved ones, Modern Family actress Ariel Winter also left a note that has left the Internet in tears.

She had known Odell since he first broke into the acting business and responded to his passing with a note on Twitter. It reads:

Devastated to hear about the passing of Jackson Odell.

I knew Jackson since we were 12 years old, and he even appeared in an episode of Modern Family. We didn’t talk much as we entered our high school years, but I’m glad I got to spend time with him before his end.

Very hard for me to hear about anyone passing away, but someone so young really saddens me. Sending love to his family and friends.

You can see the note for yourself here:

wintet tweet

Odell’s cause of death is yet to be determined.

We expect to know more this week after an autopsy is performed and the results are made public.

Radar Online has reported that he passed away from a heroin overdose, but it offers little evidence to back up this speculation and we do not want to get ahead of ourselves.

We simply hope Jackson Odell is resting in peace.

The young actor’s passing concluded a sad week overall in Hollywood.

It followed the suicide of designer Kate Spade at age 55 and the suicide of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain at age 55.

We’ll continue to follow the details as they relate to all of these deaths and we’ll continue to keep readers up to speed regarding the latest.

RIP.

Ariel Winter Claps Back at Troll Who Called Her Thirsty

Ariel Winter is talented, successful, and beautiful. She is also, unfortunately, no stranger to random attacks by trolls who hope that their comments can ruin her night.

Fortunately, Ariel knows just how to stick it to her haters.

So when someone left a nasty comment about her appearance on her costar’s photo, she was ready to clap back.

This starts with a photo shared by Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter’s costar.

The Modern Family cast took a few photos when they attended a For Your Consideration event.

Hyland expressed her enthusiasm under the group photo that she shared, writing:

“I love these people with all my heart. My family (well most of them) Here’s to a Season 10.”

That’s right, folks — Modern Family is about a decade old.

Unfortunately, one commenter decided to single out Ariel’s appearance.

“Why,” wrote a troll. “Does Ariel look so thirsty all the time?”

Though thirsty often means experiencing sexual attraction towards a specific person or wanting to hook up, it can also mean that someone looks desperate for fame and attention.

Either way … it is clearly not intended as a compliment towards the 20-year-old actress.

Plenty of stars wouldn’t see this, but it looks like Ariel saw her friend’s post and just happened to catch a glimpse of this rude comment.

Ariel being Ariel, she clapped back … and showed off her sense of humor.

“I’m SO thirsty!!! Haven’t had water in hours. God I can’t believe you can tell I’m dehydrated from this pic :/ :/.”

Ariel Winter Claps Back on Instagram

Sarcasm can be a great tool for shaming trolls in situations like this one.

(In other cases, you can use politely phrased, earnest questions)

The only sad thing is that Ariel had to clap back in the first place.

Even if you don’t watch Modern Family because you don’t have time or sitcoms aren’t your thing or whatever, the actors deserve respect. They’re human beings.

But this comes down to, yet again, people looking for any excuse to sexualize Ariel and then attempt to shame her for having the audacity to be attractive.

She was, as you can see in the photos above, wearing a normal black dress.

Even if she had been naked, she would still deserve respect, but it’s worth noting that she was dressed appropriately for the occasion.

So … what was thirsty about her?

We’re guessing that this troll noticed Ariel’s body’s curves and found her attractive.

Which doesn’t really have anything to do with Ariel, now does it?

That sounds like his problem.

But it isn’t Ariel Winter’s job to educate her haters or to make them have epiphanies that their misogynistic attacks are born of their own shortcomings.

Her job is to act on Modern Family.

Recently, she’s used social media to celebrate her anniversary with Levi Meaden and of course to praise his role in the new Pacific Rim film.

But her presence on social media is a privilege to her fans and followers and is not guaranteed.

One of these days, if these nasty trolls keep up their rudeness, Ariel may stop sharing sexy photos. In her case, that will mean that she’d just stop sharing pictures.

Nobody wants that. Just … be decent human beings when you leave comments, folks.

Ariel Winter & Levi Meaden Flaunt Their Christmas PDA!

It’s been less than 14 months since Ariel Winter and Levi Meaden’s one-year anniversary, but that hasn’t stopped these two from looking super domestic.

They took pictures with a big ol’ tree. They took photos in matching Christmas onesies. And they took photos locking lips in front of their decorations.

‘Tis the season!

Ariel Winter’s always happy to celebrate the holidays.

Last October, we saw Ariel get into the Halloween spirit and out of her clothes. And that was before they dressed up in multiple different costumes.

So you can always count on Ariel to be seasonal … and, when it comes to her boyfriend, affectionate.

(Ariel and Levi’s PDA has been all over social media, folks)

As you can see, they didn’t need any mistletoe to put them in the kissing mood.

That photo was shared to Snapchat.

As sweet as their kiss in front of that dazzlingly decorated Christmas tree is, we’d like to point out a couple of things.

One, Ariel Winter’s red dress is both in a perfect seasonal color and gorgeous.

Two, they have so many presents around that tree. They’re not under the tree, they’re forming a small ocean around it.

That’s what Christmas is all about. (Well, okay, also spending time with your loved ones, we guess)

As you can see, Ariel and Levi didn’t limit their affections to formal attire.

These Christmas onesies look adorable and comfortable.

(That said, folks, no matter how cute your onesies might be, don’t pressure your family members into wearing them for anything more than just a photo op — some people find them confining, or too warm)

Clearly, Levi and Ariel were feeling romance along with holiday cheer.

But they weren’t the only ones who wore matching outfits:

Ariel captioned this photo:

“Kids are a struggle y’all. But Merry Christmas from our little dysfunctional family to yours!!!!”

That is so cute, you guys.

(The “kids” to whom she’s referring, in case you worry that you missed a huge story, are these dogs. Like most Millennials, Ariel refers to her dogs as her children)

We love how domestic Ariel and Levi are as a couple. We also love their “dysfunctional family” and the fact that Ariel feels comfortable enough in their easy domesticity to write that.

This is a big time in Ariel and Levi’s lives.

Modern Family, which feels like it’s gone on for decades, won’t last forever. But Ariel has grown from a child star into an adult hottie before the very eyes of viewers.

Levi, in the mean time, has entered Ariel’s life and, despite their age difference, they’ve found love and comfort in each other.

In the next Pacific Rim film, Levi Meaden might get his big break — because he’s in that movie in some capacity.

That should hopefully lay to rest the rumors that Levi Meaden is just Ariel Winter’s kept boy. He’s not, folks. He has his own acting career and everything.

Ariel Winter and Levi Meaden Celebrate One Year Together!

We all saw Ariel Winter get into the Halloween spirit … and out of most of her clothes. Halloween is a fun time, and she ended up pulling off a number of different costumed looks.

Well, now it’s November, and she’s celebrating something that’s a lot more special: her one-year anniversary with boyfriend Levi Meaden.

And what better way to mark one year together than with some steamy photos?

Admittedly, this couple has proven to be controversial for some fans.

For example, when Ariel Winter and Levi Meaden moved in together after only dating for six months, it caused a bit of a stir.

We should remember, though, that for celebrities concerned about privacy, moving in together has some added benefits that those of us who aren’t followed by cameras or creepy fans might not understand.

Plus, it’s not like Ariel Winter’s home doesn’t have plenty of room.

The disparity between the couple’s respective degrees of fame was another point of criticism, with haters even going so far as to suggest that Levi Meaden was Ariel Winter’s kept boy, with an allowance or even a salary. Ariel shut down that kind of rumor, hard.

Levi’s an actor, too. Not at her level, but he’s going to be in the new Pacific Rim movie. That’s exciting stuff.

Probably their biggest issue — as far as critics are concerned — is their age gap.

Ariel Winter is 19 and won’t turn 20 until 2018. Levi Meaden just turned 30 a couple of months ago.

Now, that’s a hefty age gap, even though Ariel was an adult when they started dating.

But they’re both adults and they make each other happy, so we don’t think that there’s anything predatory going on.

Honestly? A lot of this couple’s haters seem to just be men who wish that they were the ones dating Ariel Winter. Dream on.

Ariel Winter posted this sweet photo on November 12th.

Admittedly, you don’t normally think of couples getting professional photos done when they’re just dating. Especially for just a year.

In fact, you usually just hear about couples getting professional photos done for their engagement and then for their wedding.

(Unless they’re taking some private, erotic photos and hire a discreet professional)

The Modern Family star included this caption as a tribute to their relationship:

“Happy 1 year anniversary my love. I’m the luckiest girl in the entire world.”

That’s some pretty obligatory gushing, but it’s super sweet.

“Thank you for being the incredible man you are, and for making me the happiest I could’ve ever imagined.”

Ariel Winter had a disturbing, upsetting childhood so we’re so glad that she’s found her bliss.

“Here’s to many, many more. I love you. [heart emoji]”

Before you call her out for thinking that she’s found “the one” at 19, know that even though the odds of that are low (statistically), it happens.

(Two couples I know who were dating when we ate lunch together in high school went on to get married in their twenties, after college. It happens)

“P.S. your crazy butt is the only one who could ever make me agree to jumping off a cliff at a waterfall soooo yeah. I love you.”

That postscript gives us a little context for this lovely photo, which Ariel also shared.

Levi shared those photos, too — and the one that we have up top, as a bonus.

Obviously, he also posted a moving tribute for their one-year dating anniversary:

“I can’t believe it’s been a year.”

Well, he’s 30, so with more than one-third more life experience than Ariel, he would literally perceive the passage of time as going faster than she does.

(We all do; that’s why an hour felt like “forever” as a little kid and now, if you have to leave in an hour, you feel like that’s not enough time to start doing anything — we view time subjectively in proportion to how much life we’ve experienced)

“We’ve had adventures. Gotten dolled up countless times. And traveled through 3 continents together. I never imagined I’d be this happy.”

That almost sounds like an exhausting amount of “adventuring” for one year, but traveling the world is different when you’re in love.

And now for the gushing:

“I love you more than anything! Happy anniversary Peanut Butter!!!!”

Not every nickname has a story to go with it, but we’d love to know if there’s one for Ariel.

Honestly, good for these two lovebirds, you know?

We hope that Levi’s role in the new Pacific Rim serves him well. He probably won’t be front-and-center with John Boyega, but it could be a real career boost.

That said … sometimes, when a couple’s dynamic changes because the less famous member of the relationship’s career takes off, it can upset the balance that they had and lead to a breakup.

That’s not hypothetical. It appears that Chris Pratt’s success ruined his marriage to Anna Faris. It was, at least, a factor.

But for right now, we can all just be happy for Ariel and Levi and the place where they are in their lives.

Ariel Winter Gets Into the Halloween Spirit, Out of Her Clothes

Technically, any season is bikini season if you’re not a weenie … but it’s been autumn for over a month, now. 

But what’s a beautiful, confident young woman like Ariel Winter to do when her famous bikini photos aren’t in season?

Don’t worry, folks. She’s figured out how to 

When it comes to weather and Halloween costumes, there’s just no winning.

If it’s unseasonably warm (as it certainly is this year — we all saw everyone in L.A. tweeting nonstop about the 101 degree temperatures in late October), people with elaborate, heavier costumes are doomed to wither and die.

If it’s appropriately cool, like late October should be, the skimpy costumes that make the world go ‘round turn into death sentences for the waifs and twinks who are most likely to dress skimpily.

This year’s soaring temperatures have caused many people to despair. People who bought their giraffe costumes back in April, when April the Giraffe finally gave birth … are probably wishing that they’d dressed as slutty bikini models right about now.

The same likely goes for whichever couples decided that they’d dress to match each other — one as Sean Spicer, the other as a mini-fridge.

But Ariel Winter is no stranger to baring some skin.

We don’t know what her Halloween costume is going to be this year, but she’s clearly getting into the Halloween spirit.

And it looks like she’s not struggling to figure out her wardrobe.

Ariel Winter captioned this photo:

“Mickey gave me a ride to the pumpkin patch.”

We don’t know what about that innocuous line reads as innuendo, but some people have seen it that way. (Maybe the word “ride,” we guess?)

Clearly, she’s getting into the Halloween spirit.

It looks like she’s at one of those quintessentially American Halloween attractions that crop up, with pumpkins and games for kids and jump-scare attractions for a wide range of ages.

She is also making that white bikini top work with those jeans.

Bikini season is a state of mind.

This isn’t the first time that Ariel Winter’s paired a white top that bares her abs with a pair of jeans.

It’s a great look on her.

Unfairly, Ariel Winter has gotten a ton of unwarranted criticism for having to audacity to be photographed while being attractive, basically.

She’s been body-shamed, slut-shamed, trolled, and even slammed by her own estranged mother over her pics.

(Of course, Ariel’s mother isn’t estranged by accident — she’s a terrible mother who is accused of inflicting horrible abuse upon Ariel, which is why Ariel won her emancipation as a teenager)

But no matter how confident you are, that kind of backlash can take its toll.

There was a time when we feared that Ariel Winter was done sharing hot pictures. Sometimes, the hate gets to you and it doesn’t seem worth it anymore.

But Ariel Winter isn’t backing down.

In fact, sometimes Ariel Winter’s skimpiest outfits seem designed to spite her haters.

After an unenviable childhood, Ariel Winter doesn’t need any other voices trying to micromanage her personal decisions.

And considering that Ariel was eagerly objectified as a minor over her large breasts (before she got her reduction surgery), it’s awfully hypocritical of people to criticize her now, as an adult, for showing off her body as she chooses.

Hypocritical and creepy … where were these haters when grown adults on the red carpet were treating her like a walking pair of breasts at 14?

But whatever. Whether she’s posing poolside or hanging out by a pumpkin patch, Ariel can wear what she wants and look amazing while she’s at it.

Ariel Winter Rocks Cleavage, Bares Her Butt While Serving Glamor

If you were one of those who worried that Ariel Winter was done taking sexy photos, let us lay those fears to rest.

Ariel Winter made the cleavage-tastic cover of LaPalme, but that’s not the only photo that they snapped of her. The Modern Family actress’ glorious peach also made an appearance.

She’s gotten criticism for her sexy pics in the past, with haters claiming that they’re lewd, not artistic. We wonder if these tantalizing images will change their minds.

Ariel Winter’s cover photo alone is enough to knock you dead and then bring you right back to life.

That vibrant, powerful red, the intense contrast between her raven hair and fair skin as she serves up classic Hollywood glamour in its 2017 incarnation.

But her out-of-this-world cleavage takes center stage and eats up all of your attention.

Way back in 2015, Ariel Winter underwent breast reduction surgery for multiple reasons.

She was tired of every report talking about her breasts. Mind you, this was happening to her as a minor, and grown-ass adults who should have known better were talking to and about her on the red carpet as if she were just a pair of disembodied melons.

Also, extra-large breasts are massively (pun not intended) inconvenient for the boob-haver, whether they’re shopping for bras or trying to lay on their stomachs or even just trying to move about like a normal person.

But as you can see, it looks like she not only achieved a perfect size balance for herself, she is looking positively perfect.

Don’t worry; the camera and the good folks at LaPalme did not forget about Ariel Winter’s other good side.

That image is enough to make anyone wish that they’d never quit practicing art and could turn that into a painting, you know?

Her leg and the entire right side of her butt are bare, but even Ariel Winter’s worst critic — her horrible, slut-shamng mother — would have a hard time trying to call this crass or shameful.

This is art. This is beauty. This is Ariel Winter.

She’s so perfectly framed by those vines that this would be a lovely picture even if we were only seeing a silhouette.

And we also get a close-up of Ariel Winter’s stunning makeup.

That intriguing wig is a major callback to classic Hollywood glamour, as is so much of the look that she’s rocking.

That goes well with her fair skin, facial features, and curvier figure.

Ariel Winter is a classic beauty.

And we have tos ay that, even though we’re not necessarily the biggest fans of bangs, those raven bangs that she’s sporting are so intriguing that it does not in any way detract from the photoshoot.

Oh, and speaking of classic Hollywood looks. …

Ariel Winter stuns and amazes, even when she’s in black and white.

Even in the background, her cleavage grabs your attention.

Everything’s working for her — her look, her pose, her lighting, her outfit.

That said, we don’t mind the poolside selfies. Or the twerking videos.

Ariel Winter: Done Sharing Sexy Photos?!

You can usually count on Ariel Winter to show off her curves in amazing outfits. Trolls telling her to cover up don’t make her back down — she sticks it to her haters with another selfie.

But we’ve noticed lately that there’s been a lull in Ariel’s racier pics.

Is it just because she’s busy, or has all of the hate that she gets for dressing and posing the way that she wants gotten to her, causing her to drop the act for good?

We would hate to think that the haters have won.

Not just because Ariel Winter is, in addition to being a thoughtful and well-spoken young women and a talented actress, super … easy to look upon.

Though that is obviously a factor.

But no one, and particularly not a 19-year-old who has only been able to really live her life for a few years after escaping from a horrible childhood, should have their lives dictated to them by haters.

Whether it’s Ariel Winter twerking again or showing off her butt tattoo, there’s nothing wrong with advertising her body if that’s what she wants to do.

But trolls like to post hate in her comments, telling her to cover up.

These hateful voices are echoing Ariel’s awful mother, who repeatedly slut-shames her estranged daughter in the media in a transparent ploy for attention.

… All so that she can beg for sympathy and support from her children who, rightly, want nothing to do with her.

While Ariel Winter’s given us a glimpse of herself working out her butt, we haven’t seen much lately on her Instagram. And you can’t tell us that October’s been too cool to wear a bikini.

So … is Ariel going to give in and let haters tell her how to dress?

According to HollywoodLife‘s source, Ariel Winter hears the hate but she’s not going to submit to their demands.

Ariel tries to ignore all the haters as much as she can, but it does get to her sometimes.”

We’re all that way, right? No matter how strong you are, sometimes it sinks in.

“She’s not going to stop posting whatever photos she wants though, and she knows that trolls are just an inevitable part of social media.”

That is a relief.

Not just that she’s not going to cut out flaunting what she’s got, but that she has a healthy sense of perspective when it comes to trolls, hate, and social media.

She has good reason for not backing down.

Ariel works really hard to stay in shape, and she’s really proud of all that she’s achieved — she looks and feels amazing.”

We’ve seen some of those workouts and they’re no joke.

“As far as she’s concerned people trolling her Instagram need to get a life, and leave her alone to live hers.”

We absolutely agree.

Ariel Winter has no reason to back down.

Not only does every adult on the planet have the right to show as much, or as little, of themselves as they’d like …

(Provided that the social media platform that they’re utilizing is okay with such photos, but Ariel Winter tends to stay within the realm of what’s appropriate for Instagram0

… But every time that Ariel Winter showcases her peach in daisy dukes or a string bikini and every time that she flashes some underboob or major cleavage, she’s helping to boost her own image as a young actress.

Modern Family might feel like it’s been on television for centuries, but it won’t last forever. She’ll want another acting job after that, and then another and another.

Staying relevant is important, and there’s a reason that — even with controversy included — Ariel gets talked about more than most of her costars.

One thing that haters love to give Ariel a hard time for, aside from daring to be a corporeal being and then having the audacity to take pictures of her body, is her boyfriend.

Levi Meaden only just turned 30 and they’re both adults (and were both adults when they began dating), but people who don’t like the relationship say that the age gap alarms them.

Ariel is also much more famous and more successful as an actress than Levi, which has led to more criticism of their relationship and also to the occasional humiliation rumor about their dynamic.

But Levi is also an actor, and he’s going to be in the new Pacific Rim film (we’re super hyped about that, honestly).

Remember how Anna Faris used to be the more famous one in her (now over) marriage with Chris Pratt? And then he became one of the biggest actors ever.

We never know what’s on the horizon for actors and their careers.

What we suspect is that the people who complain about their relationship don’t really care. They wouldn’t like anyone who was dating Ariel Winter.

Isn’t that sad?
