Ariel Winter decided to ring in her 21st birthday in a lowkey and tasty way — eating pizza.

The Modern Family star, who celebrated another year of life on Jan. 28, shared a video from her celebration on Instagram Wednesday.

“21!” Winter captioned the clip, which shows her blowing out a candle placed on top of a cheese pizza from Domino’s.

The moment comes just a couple of days after Winter received a significant amount of backlash for her slimmed down physique.

On Sunday, Winter shared a photo from a friend’s birthday celebration, which shows her wearing a checkered jumpsuit that highlighted her small figure.

“Omg you lost your butt,” one fan wrote while another said “Too skinny now.”

A different user wrote, “Nothing wrong with being honest and telling her we liked her better before ‘the change’ she was so beautiful before she started chopping up her body and if me saying so helps one gurl out here to feel beautiful who’s thinking of PS its worth it.”

The comment prompted Winter to fire back.

“I appreciate you wanting to help girls love themselves the way they are, but you are also kind of cutting someone (me) down which isn’t what I think you were trying to do?” Winter wrote back.

On Jan. 2 Winter clapped back at a fan, who suggested she used drugs to lose weight.

“Not half as bad as all the coke/meth she uses. She literally dropped 30 pounds,” the fan wrote in the comment section of an Instagram post response to a user calling Winter out for underage drinking.

“My psychiatrist switched me from my previous anti depressant that didn’t work and made me gain weight to coke/meth!! Definitely not a new one that worked and then regulated metabolism. Coke/meth was a controversial decision but she stands by it,” Winter wrote.

Nonetheless, Winter has documented herself spending a lot of time in the gym.

“Workin’ on my fitness,” Winter wrote in October, quoting Fergie’s hit “Fergalicious” over a clip, which shows her working out.
