Ariel Winter, 18, is putting a STOP to the romance rumor mill that keeps on spinning surrounding her connection to Sterling Beaumon, 21. “We’ve been best friends for 10 years,” the young actress told ET. “We’re not dating. We see each other every day but no, we’re like literally best friends.” Whether or not Ariel is playing it coy, it’s obvious she really enjoys Sterling’s company as the two were spotted chatting up a storm at Variety‘s Power of Young Hollywood party on Aug. 16. They didn’t walk the red carpet together, but attendees claim they stuck by each other’s side all night.
Since splitting with longtime boyfriend Laurent Claude Gaudette in July, Ariel has been leaning on her friends’ shoulders for support, and Sterling happens to be one of them. Ariel and Sterling know each other from back in the day when they starred in a Nintendo commercial together in 2010, and have been each other’s red carpet event buddy ever since. The longterm friends even attended the SkySpace Launch Party in downtown Los Angeles where they posed for pictures together.
Sterling is best known for his role as the younger version of Benjamin Linus from the TV show Lost, and has guest starred in other series such as Law & Order: SVU, Clue and Criminal Minds. As for Ariel’s recent projects, she’s currently filming the drama Dog Years opposite acting legend Burt Reynolds, in which she plays a fiery tattooed red-headed rebel. She was ALSO accepted to UCLA, so many congratulations are in order for the ambitious star!
