ABC/BOB D’AMICO(LOS ANGELES) — How much money did you make when you were 15 years old?  Not as much as Modern Family star Ariel Winter is currently making at that age.

Winter, who plays Alex Dunphy on the ABC series, has renegotiated her contract and will make $6 million, according to, citing court documents.  She is presumably making that total per season.

The court documents state that “the minor’s professional career was protected from chronic and unwarranted interference by the mother, which had prevented the minor’s execution of a renegotiated contract for her starring role in the television sitcom, Modern Family, which contract has a value in excess of $6,000,000.”

Last year, Winter was removed from her mother’s home due to abuse allegations.  As part of a custody settlement reached in December, Winter is living with her adult sister, Shanelle Gray.
