MODERN Family star Ariel Winter has been pictured surrounded by guns while practising her shooting skills.
The 19-year-old actress posted images to social media showing her standing in the middle of woodland during target practice, The Sun reports.
Dressed in lemon yellow trousers and a white top, the red haired teenager can be seen focusing on a target in the distance as she holds a gun. Other weapons are displayed resting on wooden planks beside her.
She shared the images to Snapchat on Wednesday.
Ariel’s been enjoying a break from filming and recently revealed she’d be spending the summer away from Hollywood and by the beach with live in boyfriend, actor Levi Meaden, 29.
“I have to say he is the most incredible person I’ve ever met and that I’m so lucky to be with him,” she told Refinery 29.
“He’s always complimenting me and making me feel special and beautiful. Even when I do feel bad about myself, he’s just there to support me and pick me back up when I’m feeling down.”
They moved in together earlier this year which raised eyebrows given their age gap.
She revealed on The Jimmy Kimmel Show: “I do have my own house which I bought last year. My boyfriend and I live together. He cooks and takes care of the handy stuff, I bake pie occasionally — pumpkin and apple. I’m the worst wifely person!”
Defending their age gap, Ariel told Maxim in April: “I grew up a lot earlier than I should have, and I’m only 19 but it feels like I’m a lot older.
“I needed somebody who had a lot of life experience and who was at a point in their lives that they could take care of another person, but where I didn’t have to take care of them.
“Being with an older guy isn’t always amazing, but I got lucky — I have an amazing guy who’s super supportive and loving and is just an all-round wonderful human being.”
Ariel and Levi cemented their love earlier this month by having matching half love heart tattoos inked on their hands.
When they place their hands together, the two halves form a whole heart.
The smitten couple had matching half love hearts tattooed on their hands.
They also had quirky peanut butter and cheese tattoos designed on their fingers.
Perhaps that’s why she was so upset last week, then, when a US magazine claimed she paid Levi an allowance.
Lashing out via Instagram, the irate actress said: “I have a boyfriend and a personal assistant who are not the same person. I would never pay my boyfriend any sort of allowance, nor would he ever accept if I offered.
“He buys his own stuff whether it’s for me or himself, and he pulls his weight for our life. He’s got a full career (including something huge that’s new) and works hard for it.”
