Eva Mendes responds to comments about her age: I'm old and I'm proud of it

When they tell me I'm old, I take that as a compliment, explained popular Hollywood actress Eva Mendes, referring to a comment made by one of her followers on her Instagram.
Eva Mendes is not offended by comments that she is getting old. Recently, this mother, a mother of two, took a humorous response on Instagram to the inappropriate comment that she was old, thanking the commenter for reminding her that she was "still here".

Speaking to People at the Create and Cultivate event in Los Angeles, Eva, who turns 46 next month, explained why she elegantly "covered" the commenter: "I was excited by the reaction because in no way do I think the person who is left a comment about how malicious the old one was ".

"I don't think it was a malicious comment, but I think it's more dangerous just because it wasn't like that, as it is ingrained in society that aging is something we should be afraid of or ashamed of."

"I think the attitude is not to ask a woman how old he is archaic," Mendes continued. "If you ask me about my age, I'll be happy to answer it. I'll be 46 soon, and it kind of shocks me. But I'm proud of it. I wanted to reach out to this person because I had something to tell her. I felt I needed to explain to her that I didn't think it was malicious and that she thought she offended me, "the actress continued.

She then added that she would love to change the way she talks about how old she is.

"I'd like to change that and say 'I'm 46 years behind,' because that sounds very nice in Spanish. We say, 'Tengo cuarenta seis anos.' There is a slight difference in meaning, but it is important. "

"It's like I don't feel 46 years old. I feel like I have 46 years of experience," added Eva Mendes: "And it just makes me strong."

The actress and fashion designer, who has two daughters with Ryan Gosling, Amadu Lee (3.5) and Esmerald Amad (5), is no stranger to receiving criticism on social networks, but also dismissing them with style.

Last month, she responded respectfully when one of her fans criticized a multicolored patterned dress she wore in an Instagram video: "I don't like this creation, you need a better designer, you're too pretty for this ugly pattern," the fan wrote below the video in which Mendes shows off a new dress she was involved in designing.

"I'm sorry you don't like this. Coincidentally this is my favorite piece of my new collection. But I'm sure you'll like other things. If you don't, @katehudson and @gabunion are creating some great things. So maybe there something for you. Much love in 2020, "Eva replied.
