Ariel Winter - Ariel Winter praises sister as 'amazing woman'

Ariel Winter wants to be just like her older sister.

The 'Modern Family' star is currently in the custody of her 34-year-old sister Shanelle Grey after being removed from her mother Chrisoula 'Chrystal' Workman's care in October amid allegations of abuse and Ariel says her sister is ''the most amazing woman''.

She told People magazine: ''My sister is the most amazing woman I've ever met in my life. If I could be half the woman she is ... she's kind of who I want to be like.

''[Shanelle] supports me in everything I do, and so does my brother-in-law David. Both are kind of like my biggest supporters.''

While Ariel, 15, is grateful for her sister, she also praised her castmates, who she calls her ''family''.

She said: ''Our chemistry has been there since we first met, and it's really made us come off as a family on the show, and in real life, because we are.''

Previously Ariel admitted she has never been happier and feels like a ''normal'' teenager since moving in with her sister.

She said: ''My life is definitely more normal -- and that'll help me grow up like I'm supposed to.

''Sunday we have family dinner. It's just a different experience for me because I have more of a family life. I'm really happy.''

Chrisoula lost custody of Ariel following an investigation by child services last year, during which they found evidence of emotional abuse.
