It’s not uncommon for Kate Beckinsale to show some skin on her Instagram account, and in her latest post she’s doing plenty of that. The actress shared a photo of herself posing in a burgundy bikini while standing in a doorway.
“When a door closes, a window opens. Or it should in a bathroom, if people have any manners at all,” she captioned the shot.
“My Dad always said he left something in the bathroom and send one of us to look for it. It was not a great childhood,” one fan responded, to which Beckinsale replied, “that’s so funny and awful.”
“I gotta know what your trainer does for you as well as your nutritionist. You look gorgeous at your age and I’m 20 years younger and need some tips, stat!” another fan said.
“You are so astonishing breathtaking. How do you do it?” a third added.
The last bikini shot that she shared was met with a nasty comment from a troll. “Shes too old..looking for attention hahahaa!!” the person wrote.
Beckinsale had no time for the haters and struck back with force.
“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?” Beckinsale replied. “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. If you’re older and fearing less is available to you, it actually isn’t, don’t let that limit you in anything.”
