EXCLUSIVE: Ariel Winter Turns Heads in Bedazzled Mini Dress at ‘Dog Years’ Premiere, Says She’s Game for a ‘Modern Family’ Spinoff!
Ariel Winter definitely has a look!
The 19-year-old actress turned heads in a black, bedazzled mini dress at the New York City premiere of her new film, Dog Years, on Saturday.
Gone are the sassy pink locks the teenager sported to Coachella last weekend. Instead, Winter let her long, straight black hair lay down to her waist.
The Modern Family star’s ensemble was quite a departure from the outfits sported by the rest of her cast, including Robert De Niro, Chevy Chase and Burt Reynolds.
While Winter’s look was definitely sexy, she sports a much racier look in the film — with striking red hair and a tiger tattoo on her arm.
ET spoke with Winter at the premiere, where she talked about the difference between her character Lil in the film, and her beloved Modern Family character, Alex.
“I think fans will definitely be shocked by the role because she is so different than what you normally see me as,” Winter said. “I mean, Lil’s a really troubled young girl who’s addicted to antipsychotics and she’s kind of lost in the world, and she forges this relationship with [Burt Reynolds’] character and they kind of fill voids for each other so it’s definitely difficult.”
When asked about a potential Modern Family spinoff with Alex showing a little more edge, Winter was game — and already had some ideas on what it might explore!
“That would be cool,” she said. “You know, Alex is always really focused on school. I think it’d be nice to see her doing something else, and maybe, you know, focus on her social life and what she wants to do in the future. I think that would be really cool to see.”
ET caught up with the actress earlier this month, where she opened up about the difficulties of growing up in the spotlight.
“It definitely has been [difficult growing up in the public eye]. It’s hard to go through your awkward stage in front of the camera. It’s hard to go through your, you know, ‘I’m a kid, now I’m an adult’ phase. It’s kind of weird,” she revealed. “So it’s been kind of hard.”
