Could Modern Family sweetheart Ariel Winter really be a mean girl? That’s what Cosmo thinks…

Just kidding! But the magazine did ask the actress to dress up as five infamous bad girls, including Blaire Waldorf from Gossip Girl, Amber from Clueless, and of course, Regina George from Mean Girls.

She also told the magazine what she thinks it means to be a “bad bitch.”

“To me, being a bad bitch means being a go-getter,” she said. “I’m getting what I want, I don’t take shit from anybody, I am my own woman, I have my own ideals, I have my own voice, I don’t rely on other people, I get what I want, and I am just being me. It’s somebody who’s not afraid to speak up for what they want.”

But that doesn’t mean it’s cool to call her a bitch anytime soon.

“Standing up for yourself and being a bitch are often two things that people confuse. And that really bothers me.”
