Ariel Winter Got Real About Her Rapid Weight Loss After A Fan Asked Why She's "So Thin"
"I feel better mentally with the change, and it's nice to work out and have your body actually respond."
Actor Ariel Winter has pretty much grown up in the public eye since landing the role of Modern Family's Alex Dunphy when she was only 10 years old.
Now she's opened up even more about the reason for her rapid weight loss after she did a Q&A on Instagram and a fan asked her: "Why so thin?"
In a long message posted to her Instagram story, Ariel explained that she had previously gained weight because of the antidepressants she was taking at the time.
For years I had been on anti-depressants that caused me to gain weight that I couldn't lose no matter what I did. It was always frustrating for me because I wanted to get fit and feel like the work I was doing was paying off, but it never felt that way. I had accepted it and moved on.
