Ariel Winter opens up about the backlash she got when she revealed she lived with her boyfriend

In a really great interview about body confidence, Ariel Winter opened up about the backlash she received when she revealed that she lives with her older boyfriend, Levi Meaden. We super admire how open and honest Ariel Winter has always been about her struggles and her life, and we hate that people would react to her honesty with anything but appreciation or understanding. Unfortunately, we all know the internet…

When asked about the negative responses she’s received, Ariel Winter was characteristically poised. She told Refinery29.

“I’m happy, and whatever people want to say they can say. I don’t understand why someone would even comment on our situation at all, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal…But I’m super happy in the arrangement that we have; we love living together and we share all the duties and it’s great.

Sounds like an amazing living situation to us! In fact, it sounds better than amazing, because Ariel has already talked about how living with her boyfriend means he does all the cooking. Talk about #goals. Ariel revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live!:

"My boyfriend and I live together, and he cooks. I can’t cook at all. He takes care of all that handy stuff, he’s great, he does all that. I can bake a pie occasionally. Pumpkin and apple, I baked those two the other day. They were edible."

Especially since they couple lives in the house that Ariel owns, this is clearly a relationship that’s on her terms and within her boundaries. We’re just happy that she’s happy, and hope that she continues to rise above the haters on the ‘net!
