“Van Helsing” actress Kate Beckinsale clapped back at a person in Instagram who accused her of having a “midlife crisis” on Sunday.
After the user wrote, “I feel like you are having a midlife crisis or something” in the comments section of an Instagram photo from the actress, Beckinsale had the perfect response.
“Oh! I think that’s because you’re an annoying a——,” she responded. Beckinsale, who’d been vacationing in Mexico, had posted several stunning photos of her in a bikini on the beach to Instagram.
Even though the troll continued to engage with the actress — replying that he still had his “youth” and “pretty green eyes” — Beckinsale was having none of it.
“Yes darling, at least you have those,” she replied.
Numerous Instagram users quickly came to Beckinsale’s defense, praising her appearance, as well as her attitude in dealing with the troll.
“You tell him Kate,” one user wrote, while another said, “Yes Kate, tell them off queen.”
Other users made light of the fact that even if Beckinsale was having a “midlife crisis,” she still looked amazing.
“Don’t even listen, you’re gorgeous,” a user commented, and plenty of other people shared similar sentiments.
One told Beckinsale, “I wish I looked like this at my midlife existential crisis,” and another simply said, “Midlife crisis never looked so good.”
