Ariel Winter: an honorary KarJenner?

The 18-year-old Modern Family star attended the Glamour Women of the Year Awards at NeueHouse Hollywood on Monday, and of course, she took to Snapchat to documentary her star-studded evening.

The standout? Her snap with Caitlyn Jenner, 67.

“Met Caitlyn and she called me her second daughter,” gushed Winter in her caption. “She was so sweet!”

Winter, meanwhile, has long been a supporter of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians clan: She’s regularly spoken out to defend Kim Kardashian West, praising the reality star for promoting body positivity.

Earlier in the day, Winter also spoke at the “We Are Digital Girls” panel during Glamour‘s Women of the Year Summit.

“It’s definitely been a journey,” the actress said of her social media presence, which began when she was 11 years old, the same year Modern Family premiered.

Winter said commenters regularly attacked her for being “too thin” at first, then “fat” as she got older. She also told the panel she was constantly called “slut,” “fat hooker,” and “ugly.”

Eventually, Winter learned how to take the insults in stride: “I realized when I was 16 and a half or so that I had wasted so much time trying to please everyone else. I had to take that time to be happy … and I really did. It was the best decision I ever made. I stopped reading comments.”

“I don’t police what I post [on social media] because I think it’s unnecessary,” she added. “I don’t care. I post what I like. I post what’s going to make me happy.”

Modern Family airs Wednesdays (9 p.m. ET) on ABC.
