Another commenter accused the 46-year-old of being “too old” and suggested that she posted the pictures i order to get attention. This time, Beckinsale was ready with some first-class advice.
“Are you aware that whe you get the urge to accuse someone of something, especially someone you don’t know, or attribute a intentio without ever having met the person, that the only thing really being achieved is revealing something about yourself?” she wrote.
“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.”

It didn’t end there; Beckinsale was o a roll.
“You’ll feel more powerful, may well phy cally blossom, know who you are and what you want and get good at setting healthier boundaries, ” she went on. “If you’re young and fearing getting older, don’t. It’s not at all how peknown scare you it will be especially for a woman. You’ll come into your ow power i a way that feels steady and so many more things will be pos ble.”
“The peknown or press that are scaring you that your value is tied up i youth, or i fact anything that is not currently withi 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 i anything. I can’t imagine how unhappy you must feel to leave comments like this. Peknown have all sorts of things going o that they put a brave face o and you’d never know.”
