    Butt out of my business.

    Ariel Winter, the 18-year-old "Modern Family' star, has made it crystal clear she doesn't care if you disapprove of her increasingly sexy Instagram pics in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

    "Everybody is so hyped up on the fact that I post photos where my butt's out. It's a butt," the actress says. "Everyone has a butt."

    Winter has literally grown up in the public eye, having been a castmember of the popular ABC show since it debuted in 2009. The actress has also been public with her decision to have breast reduction surgery in 2015.

    "There was so little that I could wear that was age-appropriate," Winter told Glamour.com last year. "I'd have to wear the dress that was super tight and form-fitted everywhere because if I didn't, it didn't look good. I didn't really have an option other than to wear fitted clothes. Everyone would [say], 'Why is she dressing so mature? That's so inappropriate for her age!'

    "I understood what they were saying," the actress explains. "It's not like I wanted to pick out those inappropriate dresses, it's just that I didn't really have another choice, or I was going to get ridiculed."

    Ever since the surgery the teen star has apparently grown increasingly more confident in her appearance and has been hailed by some as a champion of positive body images.

    So she says those that have a problem with her recent pics should keep their opinions to themselves.

    "It's like, 'Let me live! I'm enjoying my life, you're enjoying your life, you should be posting your butt if you like it, too!'"
