Ariel Winter is saying goodbye to Princess Sofia, and the actress is getting a bit emotional about it.

On Thursday, Winter took to Instagram to bid farewell to the animated character she brought to life on Disney’s Sofia the First. The show’s ending had already been announced, but Winter said it was difficult for her to come to terms with the ending.

“It’s taken me so long to post about the ending of Sofia The First because for a large part of my life, it is a project that has been so near and dear to my heart,” Winter wrote. “For the past 7 or so years, I’ve been so lucky to play Princess Sofia, as well as work with the amazing team that made this project as special as it is.”

Sofia the First debuted in 2012, three years after Winter’s television breakout in Modern Family. The show told the story of Sofia, a girl who became a princess after her mother married the king and had to learn how to navigate a new world of castles and royalty. It taught lessons of acceptance, loyalty, and friendship, becoming one of Disney’s most popular animated programs.

Wizards of Waverly Place star David Henrie was arrested on Monday after he brought a loaded gun to Los Angeles airport. The Disney star, 29, who was also Ted’s kid on How I Met Your Mother, alleged he unknowingly brought the legally purchased weapon, as he apologised following his release.

According to TMZ, the actor, who starred alongside Selena Gomez in the series, was caught going through a TSA screening on Monday when the weapon was discovered by agents. The website alleged the gun was a loaded M&P Shield 9mm pistol.

However, Modern Family star Ariel Winter isn’t too happy with the lad, as she slammed an unnamed man who took a loaded gun in his bag. But while she didn’t name David, it’s pretty clear she’s referring to incident.

‘So…you didn’t notice the *loaded* gun in your bag when you were packing for the airport?????’ she wrote on Twitter. ‘In other words…why was your gun not stored safely in a place where you knew where it was and why in the fuck was it loaded??’

When a fan mentioned David had apologised, Ariel replied: ‘I’m glad he apologized but there’s a bigger issue. If he wasn’t a celebrity would he just be able to say sorry and walk away after bringing a loaded firearm in his bag to the airport?’

And if fans wondered why Ariel was wading into this debate, turns out she has a gun of her own, as she hit back at others who questioned her comments.

‘I am a licensed gun owner. I would never, ever accidentally bring my firearm anywhere,’ she said. ‘I lock them up legally and know where they are at all times. That could be a deadly mistake.’

In a statement posted to Twitter, David wrote: ‘I take responsibility for the situation at LAX today.

‘I unintentionally brought my legally owned gun which is registered in my name to the airport. I am so sorry for any trouble it caused, but I am appreciative of TSA’s efforts in implementing the safety laws that are in place to protect our beautiful country.

‘More than anything I am humiliated and embarrassed that this even happened. But I am thankful for the TSA, LAPD and all involved today for their kindness and their professionalism during this process.’

Ariel Winter is remembering her late co-star and friend, Burt Reynolds.

The 20-year-old actress co-starred with Reynolds in the 2017 film The Last Movie Star, and the two formed a close bond on the set. After news of Reynolds’ passing was announced on Thursday, Winter took to Instagram to share a series of photos of herself with her co-star.

“The world lost a legend today,” she wrote. “Not only on screen, but also in life. Burt Reynolds was an incredible man to everyone he encountered, and I am deeply grateful that I got to spend time with him in the way that I did.”

Winter continued heaping praise on the veteran actor, adding, “They don’t make them like him anymore — he truly was the last movie star. Burt was a kind, loving soul that could brighten your day with just a smile, and always cared to make sure he asked how your day was going or just cheer you up with a charming compliment.”

She ended the message on an uplifting note, writing, “While today was a sad day, Burt lived an incredibly full life and while he’s not longer here physically, he is always in our hearts and minds. Will love and miss you always Burt.”

Reynolds died of a heart attack on Thursday at the age of 82. His family was by his side.

Prior to his death, the Modern Family actress opened up to ET about working with Reynolds in April 2017 at the Tribeca Film Festival.

“Obviously I was nervous to be working with such a legend like Burt Reynolds,” Winter told ET at the time. “I mean he really is the most amazing man. He’s so wonderfully sweet and just incredibly talented actor, and just really the nicest person.”

Ariel Winter’s latest outfit is fetching some unsolicited advice — and fans are fed up.

On Tuesday night, the Modern Family actress joined her co-star Sarah Hyland for Variety‘s annual Power of Young Hollywood event. Winter wore a black cocktail dress with a low, sweetheart neckline for the occasion, with a small cutout detail offering a tiny flash of flesh.

In a photo posted to Instagram, Hyland joked that her own outfit, complete with eyeglasses, was better suited to the bookish character played by Winter on the show, Alex Dunphy. Winter agreed, joking, “I’m Alex with Haley’s [the character played by Hyland] fashion sense.”

The remark prompted one commenter to weigh in with a lecture accusing Winter of dressing in a “slυtty” manner.

The poster also claimed that the 20-year-old actress would be “so much more comfortable and confident” if she wore more conservative clothes, such as baggy sweats.

While Winter is known for firing back at trolls who shame her over her body and clothing, it was her fans who rushed in to put the critic in their place.

“Let her be what she wants and wear what she wants,” read one response. “And shut up. Nobody asked you anything.”

“And what makes you think she doesn’t feel confident in what she wears?” challenged another fan. “I don’t think she’d be wearing it if she didn’t like it and feel confident in it.”

“This isn’t the 1800s — ladies empower themselves by wearing clothes that make them feel sexy and confident,” wrote one of Winter’s defenders. “Please educate yourself.”

“She could walk around in a bedsheet and people would still find something to pick on,” another supporter told the troll. “This is why other people have confidence issues, because there’s always someone like you making something out of nothing.”

It wasn’t just Winter’s fans showing their loyalty in the comments. People also rose to Hyland’s defense, after a body-shaming troll remarked that she “really needs to eat.” Hyland has been vocal about the weight struggles caused by the kidney dysplasia she suffers from.

Modern Family returns for its 10th season this fall, but will there be more? Deadline reports ABC is in talks to renew the TV show for an 11th season.

The hit sitcom revolves around three Los Angeles families who are interrelated through Jay Pritchett (Ed O’Neill) and his adult children, Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen) and Mitchell Pritchett (Jesse Tyler Ferguson). The cast also includes Sofía Vergara, Ty Burrell, Eric Stonestreet, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, Jeremy Maguire.

During this summer’s TCA press conference, ABC boss Channing Dungey revealed the network does want an 11th season of Modern Family, but the cast is only contracted through season 10. That means the future of the show depends on them and the producing studio, 20th Century Fox:

We have had some conversations with 20th (the studio that produces Modern Family). There are conversations ongoing. I think that there is a sense that we all would like to do one more season if we can find a way for a deal that makes sense. This current season is the last season that we have the cast, so if we are to do another season there are more deals to be made, and we are trying to work through all that.

While last week her Modern Family co-star Sarah Hyland jumped in to bat for her on-screen sister, today Ariel stepped into the ring after she posted a picture of herself just chilling, enjoying the summer in a thong bikini.

There were many supporters and, of course, because it’s the internet, trolls who came to the comments section to play. However, Ariel felt enough was enough when someone challenged the idea of not complaining when people say she’s a ‘piece of meat’. Their logic just didn’t hit the nail on the head.

One follower commented on the photo: ‘Its your body do what you want with it.. But just don’t get mad when peope only see you as piece of ass.’

To which Ariel rebutted: ‘So I can’t be proud of my body AND be seen as something other than a “piece of ass?” I have to pick one??’

Said follower replied: ‘I’m not saying you can’t be proud of your body girl, Im just saying that is what some people will see you as.’ Some supported the follower while others heralded the actress’ sentiment.

‘Posting photos like this means she owns her own body and is proud of it,’ one fan proffered. ‘That doesn’t mean she has to be happy about paparazzi and negative comments. It means that she ALSO has some control over what others see and hear about her.’

Ariel Winter has seemingly had enough of Twitter — but her Instagram followers haven’t seen the last of her yet.

“Ariel has taken a break from Twitter and engaging with commenters on her other platforms because of the constant negativity she experiences. She needs a moment to breathe and enjoy herself without judgement,” the Modern Family star’s rep told PEOPLE.

However, although her Twitter account has been deleted, Winter’s Instagram remains active. The situation is a good reminder that even though celebrities are public figures, they’re still people who aren’t immune to the pressures of social media and paparazzi.

Ariel Winter went off on a major Twitter rant on Tuesday about the price of fame which eventually led to her deleting her account on the popular social media platform.

Ariel flipped out about photographers following her constantly in the beginning of her rant on Twitter Tuesday. “If a paparazzi attempts to take another f***ing picture in front of my house one more time I swear to god I will find ANY SORT of legal action.”

“Sad when you literally enjoy your job but hate every part of the fame aspect,” she continued in a separate tweet. “Also sad when you desperately want to move somewhere remote so you can just live a normal life in peace. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I hate being followed and I hate my s**t out in the news.”

The end ranted with a wave emoji before she deleted her Twitter for good. She posted something similar on her Instagram (which still remains active as of Wednesday morning), with a story that read “In the process of deleting all social media,” with the wave emoji intact again. The 20-year-old actress made the announcement of her intentions to remove herself from all social media just before 2:30 p.m.

Nothing can be found on her Twitter account, and it seems like her Instagram could be removed at any moment. Ariel stirred up some users on Monday when she posted a picture of herself at the gym, wearing an explicit T-shirt that read: ‘keep calm and eat a bag of d**ks.’ It is unknown whether the responses she received had anything to do with the her choice to remove herself from socials.

Instagram might keep taking this photo off of Ariel Winter‘s account, but she says she will keep reposting it every time it’s removed.

The 20-year-old Modern Family actress received an “Instagram Copyright Violation” email after she posted the pic earlier this week.

“What in the f–k @instagram?? Lol they removed my photo because it violated someone else’s rights? It’s literally a photo of me that someone sent me on Twitter?” Ariel captioned a pic of the takedown notice.

Ariel later reposted the photo and added, “Posting again for the idiots who took down MY PHOTO for violating someone else’s copyright. They violated my space so I should at least be able to post it when I want to or just not be f–king photographed. Will repost every time it’s taken down.”

Several celebs like Sarah Hyland, Olivia Munn, and Nolan Funk wrote supportive comments on the post. Ariel‘s boyfriend Levi Meaden also posted the photo and said, “Repost because apparently invasion of privacy is all good but using a photo of yourself is not????? Okay…”
