Sept. 29 (UPI) -- Ariel Winter says paparazzi "ruined" a major milestone for her this week.
The 19-year-old actress said in a tweet Thursday that photographers spoiled her first day of classes at University of California, Los Angeles.
"Well the paparazzi just successfully ruined my first day of school. Thanks," she wrote.
Winter was spotted in a white henley t-shirt, denim shorts and white platform sneakers on the college's Westwood campus, according to E! News. She discussed the paparazzi this month while defending her clothing choices in an Instagram "rant."
"I am not trying to be pap'd everywhere I go, I am literally just LIVING and unfortunately, I can't do that without paparazzi following me around everyday," the star said.
Winter was accepted to UCLA in April 2016, but deferred enrollment until this fall due to her filming schedule. She expressed plans to become a lawyer in an interview with E! News in 2015.
"I would love to continue acting but it's definitely important, I think, to go and do something else as well. You never know if something's not going to work out, if one day acting is like, 'No, we don't like you anymore!'" the actress explained.
"You gotta have something else you can do," she added. "I've always been interested in law so I think it'll definitely be something that I'll love to do and also go to school for."
