Ariel Winter's boob reduction worries

Ariel Winter worried about criticism after her breast reduction surgery.

The 17-year-old actress decided to undergo the dramatic procedure earlier this year after suffering from back pain due to her large chest, and she admits she didn't expect such a supportive reaction from her fans.

Ariel told PEOPLE.com: "I thought I would get a lot more criticism about, 'Oh, you did surgery. You changed yourself, blah, blah, blah ... ' Which a lot of people say, but I received so much support from women and young girls.

"Girls are tweeting me and saying like, 'Oh, this wouldn't be accepted where I am, but now that you did it and opened a conversation about it, I can actually like talk to my friends and family about the possibility of this.' "

Meanwhile, the 'Modern Family' star has recently found love with high school sweetheart Laurent Claude Gaudette, who revealed that Ariel made the first move on him.

He said: "I received a text from her. That's the first interaction I remember with her and I send very short responses, and her first thing that she sent to me was a giant, long, paragraph."

Ariel added: "I sent this giant, long paragraph about like, 'Hi, I'm Ariel. Nice to meet you.' Like just all this stuff about myself."
