Ariel Winter may be Kim Kardashian’s new BFF. The ‘Modern Family’ actress just came to the reality star’s defense after actress Chloe Moretz dissed Kim’s naked, bathroom selfie, again. Keep reading to see what Ariel said to Chloe to totally stick up for Kim!
Remember when Kim Kardashian, 35, posted that epic, naked, mirror selfie on Instagram awhile back? Actresses Chloe Moretz, 19, and Ariel Winter, 18, are actually feuding with each other over that specific nude photo now, and it’s all because of their different views on celebs and women’s body images. Here’s what we know about the ladies’ messy drama.
Chloe and Ariel’s intense shade all came about after Chloe was quick to critique Kim’s post shortly after she put it online a few months ago. “I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies,” Chloe posted on Twitter, clearly aiming her response at Kim’s pic.
Kim shot back at Chloe and said that no one even knows who she is, and of course, her fans followed. That’s when Ariel came to Kim’s defense, too. “No one was body shaming @justinbieber when he posted his nude guitar photo so why @KimKardashian? #herbodyherchoice #InternationalWomensDay,” she Tweeted. Kim actually sent her flowers and a note for sticking up for her.
Now Ariel is speaking up again after Chloe went on about her Kim comment in a new interview with Glamour. “I saw that photo, and I had to say something,” Chloe told the mag. “That picture wasn’t linked to body confidence…It was done in a slightly voyeuristic light, which I felt was a little inappropriate for young women to see.” She went on to discuss her recent bikini picture, and said it was different from Kim’s because “It wasn’t me sexualizing myself. It was with a beautiful background.”
Ariel was quick to bite back to those comments. “Many have asked about my opinion on a certain interview … all I’m going to say is this: If you take a photo in which you feel CONFIDENT about yourself and think it spreads a positive image, then GO FOR IT,” she wrote on Instagram. “The ‘background’ doesn’t matter – what matters is the message you are putting out there is true to what YOU believe in – not what anyone else says about YOU. I do what I can to create a positive light for my fans and I’m sure other celebrities are doing it in THEIR OWN WAY- no need to put one another down. No picture is the exception to someone else’s rule. Even if some people ‘known who they are.’ Live life on your own terms.”
Obviously Ariel’s not afraid to follow in Kim’s footsteps, either. She has since posted pictures of herself in a bikini on Instagram, totally showing off her curves, too.
So HollywoodLifers, are you on Team Ariel or Team Chloe? Do you think Kim went too far with her naked selfie, or do you think she has a right to do whatever the heck she wants?
