If you're a fan of "Modern Family" star Ariel Winter, you probably would like to see a lot more of her. And Winter, 18, has been obliging — but perhaps not in the way some find appropriate.

The actress has recently been posting photos that show off her curves in many shapes and forms, and as she told Entertainment Tonight recently, it's all in the name of body positivity.

"I don't really think I'm telling myself, 'You should post this, you shouldn't post that,' I feel like I'm just having fun," she said on Tuesday. "I like my fans to see what I'm doing."

And what she's doing involves a lot of close-cut outfits that reveal both under-boob and a little tush.

"Everybody is so hyped up on the fact that I post photos where my butt's out," she said. "It's a butt. Everyone has a butt ... I don't think it's crazy."

Such cheek!

While Winter has spoken out about body shaming in the past, she doesn't get involved with commenters who try to take her to task.

"I'm not going to fight with someone on my Instagram that tells me they don't like my outfit or I should put my butt away," she said. "I'm sorry you think I should put my butt away, but just unfollow me."

So where does she get this inspiration for showing off all of her, well, assets? Co-star Sofia Vergara, who practically wrote the book on such matters.

"Working with a curvy beautiful woman that everybody looked up to and loved the way she looked … that was my inspiration to move forward and accept myself because that's what matters," said Winter.
