Eva Mendes is not the type of person to just let people bring her down. That being said, she also doesn’t just ignore hate, especially when it’s something that is a problem in society in general that needs to be addressed.
That being said, when a troll told her that she’s ‘getting old’ the actress, who is 45 years old by the way, did not hesitate to clap back.
It all started with Eva posting a pic in which she was showing off her brand new haircut.
It didn’t take long for fans to gush over how beautiful and stylish she looked but what truly caught her attention was a negative comment from a troll who felt the need to write that ‘she’s getting old!‘
Mendes had a great response, however, writing a comment in which she discussed the beauty of aging.

Back to work. Design meeting. ⠀ My coworker getting her kicks and teasing me about my “cute” new hair. Thanks to @giannandreahair for making my mom life a helluva lot easier. 🖤⠀ Saturday meeting aesthetic …EM for @nyandcompany Reilly Blazer and Qiana Palazzo pant which I lorve so much. Avail online if you care. Thought I’d let you know since lots of you ask what I’m wearing. 🖤⠀ Sending you all some extra love right now and always. Thank you for always sending me so much positivity and love through your comments. I read most of them when I can and it makes me so happy that there’s so much love around. I send it all right back. Ten fold. 🖤
‘Yes you’re right. Thank God I’m getting old. That means I’m still here. I’m gonna be 46 soon and grateful every day that I’m aging. Was your comment supposed to make me feel bad? It did not. It makes me feel grateful. So thank you for the reminder I am still here. ❤️❤️❤️.’
What a great response! After all, people, and women in particular, are always pressured to remain young forever, which is obviously ridiculous and impossible.
Seeing the beauty in it and basically being grateful to be alive is a great way to deal with aging and the actress’ message can really help many to start feeling the same.
And she was not the only one replying to the hater.
One follower also wrote: ‘Old?? ‘Old’ is woman on woman negativity. This one isn’t out there offending anyone or in some scandal. She’s out here LIVING HER DREAM, huss-a-ling when she probably doesn’t even need to! Bringing us good looks. If Eva’s old, put me in all the senior communities! Be better.’ Preach!
