Actor Eva Mendes has hit back at a troll who said she was "getting old". In response to the age-shaming on one of her videos, the actor, who shares Esmeralda, five, and Amada, three, with longtime partner Ryan Gosling, said she is proud of growing old and doesn't feel bad about it.
"Yes you're right. Thank God I'm getting old. That means I'm still here. I'm gonna be 46 soon and grateful everyday that I'm ageing. 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. (sic)'' she wrote on Instagram on Saturday.
