  • On Saturday afternoon, actress Eva Mendes took to Instagram to share a video of herself at a design meeting.
  • A troll hopped into the comment section to criticize Mendes' appearance, writing that she was "getting old."
  • Instead of ignoring the comment, Mendes shot back, replying that getting old is a good thing and that's she grateful to be aging.

Eva Mendes (opens in new tab) isn't afraid of aging, thank you very much.

On Saturday, the actress shared a new video on Instagram showing off her new haircut during a design meeting.

"⁣Back to work. Design meeting," Mendes wrote in the clip's caption. "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. 🖤"

A troll took it upon themselves to leave some judgment in the comments, writing, "She's getting old."

Instead of just ignoring the shade, Mendes (opens in new tab) took to the comments herself to reply—and perfectly shut down the problematic remark.

"Yes your right," she wrote. "Thank God I’m getting old. That means I’m still here. I’m gonna be 46 soon and grateful everyday that I’m aging. Was your comment suppose to make me feel bad? It didn’t. It makes me feel grateful. So thank you for the reminder that I’m still here. ❤️❤️❤️."
