(Yahoo!) - Ariel Winter is opening up about her highly publicized family drama in the April issue of Teen Vogue. The "Modern Family" star moved in with her older sister last year after allegations of physical and emotional abuse were made against her mom.

Now, Ariel and her sister are closer than ever! The 15-year-old actress told the mag, "I didn't know my sister much growing up, and I wasn't really allowed to see her. I know now that my sister is the type of person I'd aspire to grow up to be like. It's really interesting how close you can get with somebody in such a short period."

Ariel also told the mag that her sister is helping her feel like a normal teen by setting nightly curfews, taking her to Six Flags, and encouraging her to spend time with her friends!
