While on the set of her new film, Dog Years, the newly single 18-year-old actress shared a photo of herself in a bubble bath seemingly nude, surrounded by candles and what appeared to be a glass of red wine.
But before internet trolls could fill her comments section with criticism, Winter clarified the scene with her caption.
“Today’s office… relax everyone it’s cranberry juice and I’m wearing lady bit pasties. #DogYears #set #movie,” the Modern Family star wrote.
While many recognize Ariel as the lovable and intelligent Alex Dunphy, she’s been changing up her looks to play an emotionally unstable young woman in Dog Years.
Winter’s latest character has her outfitted with nose rings, tattoos and fiery red hair also sporting crop tops, booty shorts, piercings and bold makeup for the starring role opposite Burt Reynolds.
This on-screen transformation comes amid her recently announced breakup. Winter took to social media to confirm she’s no longer with boyfriend Laurent Claude Gaudette. The pair started dating in late 2013, and had a brief split in 2015.
