Ariel Winter Swears She Doesn't Flash Her Butt Cheeks On Purpose


Ariel Winter

‘Modern Family’ star Ariel Winter has taken to social media to deflect criticisms of her ‘booty pics’ that occasionally do the rounds on the internet, of her being caught in public that often show her shorts riding up over her buttocks.

But the 19 year old actress certainly doesn’t do it on purpose, and tweeted this week that she often doesn’t realise that it happens, saying that her “a** just eats them up”.

“I literally do not try and show my a** when I wear shorts… my a** just eats them up and then I don't notice… awkward af,” she wrote. The last time she was snapped in such a pose was when she was out shopping in Beverly Hills back in June, when most of her derriere was on display.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman Review


Excellent

With a constant barrage of hilarious visual and verbal gags, this riotous animated adventure might entertain adults more than kids. Although youngsters will enjoy the whizzy pace and manic 3D animation. Based on one of Jay Ward's anarchic 1960s creations (see also Rocky & Bullwinkle), it's a relentless onslaught of jokes and puns, with a hint of educational value thrown in for good measure.

After a lonely puppyhood, the intelligent dog Peabody (voiced by Burrell) studied to become a globally acclaimed artist, sportsman and inventor, eventually adopting a human boy, Sherman (Charles), as his son. But now it's time for Sherman to start school, which isn't easy when you're a genius with a dog as your dad. Sure enough, mean girl Penny (Winter) mercilessly bullies him while Child Services officer Mrs Grunion (Janney) plots to have him taken into care. So Peabody invites Penny's parents (Colbert and Mann) and Grunion over to sort things out. But in an effort to impress her, Sherman shows Penny the Way Back time machine he and Peabody use to explore history. And Penny decides to stay in Ancient Egypt.

The movie barely pauses for breath, racing from the Pyramids to Renaissance Italy for an adventure with Da Vinci (Tucci), then on to the Trojan War and Agamemnon (Warburton). At every step, the script gleefully subverts history with goofy slapstick, poo jokes, movie references and absurd touches that come out of nowhere. It's a remarkably intelligent approach to kids' comedy, and even if the chaos sometimes feels exhausting, it's so funny we don't really mind. And the energetic plotting will delight children as much as the rather surreal idea of having a dog as a dad.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman - Teaser Trailer


Mr. Peabody is doubtlessly the most intelligent and most accomplished dog on the planet, and undeniably outshines the human race too. However, despite his achievements, he is determined to maintain a normal life for his adopted human son Sherman by inviting round Penny a classmate of his with whom he wants Sherman to be friends. She has other ideas, however, and only shows interest when Sherman agrees to show her Mr. Peabody's WABAC - a time machine in which they travel into the past despite being expressly forbidden. When Peabody finds out, he realises that their actions have ripped a hole in the space-time continuum and they are forced to return to the past to re-write history and save the universe. Along the way they meet some of the biggest legends of history, including Leonardo Da Vinci and Sigmund Freud, who help them on their quest.

'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' is a brilliantly funny animated movie based on the characters from the 'The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show' in the sixties in the 'Peabody's Improbable History' segments. It has been directed by Rob Minkoff ('The Lion King', 'Stuart Little', 'The Haunted Mansion') and written by Ted Key ('Hazel', 'The Million Dollar Duck', 'Gus') and Craig Wright ('Dirty Sexy Money', 'Underemployed'). 'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' is set for release in the UK on February 7th 2014.

Ariel Winter's Mother To Sue Over Blog Post Comment


Ariel Winter

While 14-year-old Modern Family Ariel Winter remains entangled in a custody battle, her Mother is suing Mathew Borlenghi - a soap opera actor and acting teacher - who commented on an L.A Times piece. 

Borlenghi's comment on the L.A. Times website implied Workman calling the cops to protect her daughter was "a total falsehood. It said, "The mother is grasping and clawing to find a way not to lose her money-maker, and hide the fact that she is an abusive monster," and continues, "Having spent time with her, and seeing the way she acted adoringly towards the boy, these accusations are disgusting, just as she is." Workman says in the suit, as a result of the posting, she suffered a loss of reputation as well as "shame, mortification and hurt feeling," for which she now wants damages to be determined by the court. The L.A. Times, however, is not a defendant. Given the propensity for Workman to sue based on things written on the internet, we're going to be very careful. 

Winter, 14, was temporarily removed from the custody of her mother Chrisoula "Chrystal" Workman by a court in October, and her sister Shanelle Gray, a 34-year-old mother of two, was given temporary guardianship. Ariel, who has been acting since the age of seven, plays the character of Alex Dunphy, an intelligent teenager, in the critically acclaimed TV show.
