Source - Kate Beckinsale turned up the heat over the weekend with her sizzling bikini photos and her fiery Instagram comments.
The 46-year-old shared multiple snaps of her enviable figure in a series of bathing suit pics while vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Although the “Underworld” star mostly garnered praise for flaunting her toned physique while modeling in the different two-piece swimsuits, one ageist commenter lashed out by writing: “Shes too old..looking for attention hahahaa!!”
Beckinsale was clearly not into anyone raining on her bikini parade and turned the vitriol into a teaching moment by posting a very lengthy response, reported TooFab.
“Are you aware that when you get the urge to accuse someone of something, especially someone you don’t know, or attribute an intention without ever having met the person, that the only thing really being achieved is revealing something about yourself or something you fear about yourself?”
“I don’t know you and I don’t know who has made you feel that if you get older you have no value, can’t be attractive or sexy or have a relationship with your body that isn’t only self loathing, but as one female to another, don’t let any of that noise bother you. You’ll feel more powerful, may well physically blossom, know who you are and what you want and get good at setting healthier boundaries.”
“If you’re young and fearing getting older, don’t. It’s not at all how people scare you it will be especially for a woman. You’ll come into your own power in a way that feels steady and so many more things will feel possible. The people or press that are scaring you that your value is tied up in youth, or in fact anything that is not currently within your reach, is noise I do hope you allow yourself to ignore.”
“Sending love and the real hope you receive this message in the spirit that it’s meant. I know you have more to offer than leaving mean comments that illuminate far more about you than they do about the people you choose to comment on.”
All hail the queen! We stan! We stan! We stan! She could’ve could’ve clapped back, she could’ve been mean, she could’ve deleted the comment and reported the user but she didn’t. She took the time to lay out a well articulated response that made that person feel a thousand times shittier than they would’ve had she done any of that. Because that’s what it’s all about for commenters, right? Getting noticed and getting a reaction. When the reaction is emotional they feel like they won, but when it’s well thought out it highlights who they actually are- nobodies. Insignificant, unimportant, losers who anonymously nitpick other people’s content in hopes of getting noticed. It’s a sad existence and one that’s all too common on the internet. So good on Kate for responding the way that she did. I guarantee some would be haters are going to think twice before commenting on her next post.
Also, what was that person thinking? I mean look at these photos. She’s stunning…
Stunning with a thick skin. Keep doing you, Kate. Don’t listen to the haters, not that you would anyway.
