butt-selfies-4 - Ariel Winter in the World's Tiniest Denim Shorts

Ariel Winter has a passion for the shortest of shorts and butt selfies– and this week, the Modern Family star did a photo-shoot by the beach wearing the world’s tiniest pair.

The actress has been receiving a lot of hate on social media lately, to which she replied:

‘It’s definitely hard being self-conscious and having the world be able to tell you how they feel about you. Before Twitter and Instagram, if you felt a certain way about a person you didn’t know, you couldn’t tell them. My sister helped me understand that people will say those things regardless of how you look. I tell myself every day, “I look fabulous.”‘

On the fact that she posts a lots of ‘belfies’ – aka butt selfies online:

Everybody is so hyped up on the fact that I post photos where my butt’s out. It’s a butt. Everyone has a butt. I don’t think it’s crazy. 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. I like my fans to see what I’m doing. It’s like, Let me live! I’m enjoying my life, you’re enjoying your life. You should be posting your butt  selfies if you like it, too!

See more from Ariel’s photo-shoot next!

Bryce Dallas Brings Today’s Quote

ffn_vcv_52143783

On how weight criticism made her stay away from the Internet for 9 years:

I gave birth to my son and I needed to do press afterwards for Spider Man 3. So two weeks after giving birth, I had gained quite a bit of weight and everyone had been, you know, really nice up until that point. And I remember going onto a message board and thinking “Oh the premiere was last night what are they going to say?”‘ But it was intense. And I remember feeling gutted, shutting the computer and just saying “never again”. I think in a way that’s a little bit why I stayed away from social media for so long.’

Gigi Hadid Talks About Becoming a Supermodel

On becoming an ‘Instagram supermodel’:

‘It’s weird, because it happened so naturally for me. I think Instagram started when I was a junior in high school. If you scroll to the bottom of my account, I still have pictures with 500 likes. And then it just happened to be the theme of our generation of models: the “social-media supermodel” or whatever they call it.’

… says Gigi.
