"I got called a fat slut when I was 13," Winter said on Red Table Talk: The Estefans. "That was rough. Because I gained weight and my body changed, I had to wear different outfits and I wore a dress that had a cutout here. And the headlines were dark. Fat slut was rough for me, and it continued. It was the fans, some of them, we have lovely, lovely fans, but some of them were also hard on me in the way they loved Alex Dunphy. And because I wasn't Alex Dunphy and didn't look like Alex, I didn't want to dress like Alex… I was just different in that way. I'm not my character."
