Modern Family star Ariel Winter's family life has been more drama than comedy this year – but the young actress says she's grateful she has a strong support system in her sister.
"My sister is the most amazing woman I've ever met in my life," Winter, 15, told PEOPLE at the USA Network 2013 Upfronts in New York. "If I could be half the woman she is ... she's kind of who I want to be like."
The teen star doesn't just reserve admiration for her older sister, Shanelle Gray, 34 – who is currently in court-ordered care of her famous sister following abuse allegations against Winter's mother, Chrisoula Workman – but she also praises her extended family.

Her family life on TV may be a comedy, but in real life it's still, sadly, a drama.
Modern Family star Ariel Winter's guardianship case is headed for trial in October to determine if her mom, Chrisoula Workman, should regain custody of the teen.
"It's a work in progress," Winter's attorney told L.A. Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas on Friday regarding the family's court-ordered therapy sessions. "There's been no advancement in terms of reunification."
The actress, 15, has been in the care of her older sister Shanelle Gray, 34, following Winter's abuse allegations in October against her mother.

Eric Stonestreet, Julie Bowen and Jesse Tyler Ferguson were on their way to headline a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City – Stonestreet's hometown – when the elevator at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center stopped.

Aubrey Anderson-Emmons – all of 5 years old – is barely bigger than the statue she'd later win Sunday night at the SAG Awards.
But the girl who plays Lily on Modern Family was right out there on the red carpet Sunday night, posing ever so delicately, almost too tiny for all the hoopla.
Backstage, after the cast won for best ensemble for a TV comedy, Aubrey's proud mom Amy Anderson told PEOPLE what went into getting the pint-sized actress ready for such a big night.
