Ariel Winter reportedly wants to star in a reality show at the end of 'Modern Family'.

The 20-year-old actress and her co-star Sarah Hyland are best known for their starring roles in the hit sitcom, but the duo fear for their acting futures once the programme ends and are therefore, exploring the idea of appearing in their own reality show.

But a source told America's Star magazine: ''Ariel and Sarah are convinced their lives are so funny, but producers don't agree. No one is biting on giving them a show just because they're on a hit show.''

Ariel joined the ABC sitcom when she was just 11 years old and has since emerged as one of the world's most recognisable TV stars.

Despite this, Ariel recently admitted that she had her self-confidence knocked during her younger years when she was branded ''fat'' and a ''sl*t''.

The curvaceous star - who plays Alex Dunphy in the show - explained: ''I was completely flat and would get ridiculed for that. I started trying to dress for my body and was called a sl*t or a fat hooker. It got even worse as I was turning 13, 14, 15. It really took so much of my self-esteem. I still get insecure all the time.''

But Ariel decided against trying to please others after years of dieting.

Ariel also revealed that she always tries to write something positive on social media to make herself feel good.

She said: ''I would say to myself, 'Do you really feel this way about yourself?' And the answer was always no. It was really disappointing that people would hate me so much for dressing how I wanted to. It's difficult to not write something sassy, but I feel better when I write something positive. Maybe they'll not write something hurtful next time. It makes you feel better about yourself.''
