Kate Beckinsale Responds to 'Old' Comment After She Dresses Up as Elderly Woman: 'I Do Not Care'
Kate Beckinsale is unbothered by social media trolls who call her old.
On Thursday, the 48-year-old actress shared a photo of herself dressed up as an elderly woman, wearing a grey wig, sweater and pearls as she promoted her latest Paramount+ series, Guilty Party. Also in the hilarious photo are her pet dog and cat, both also disguised.
"If us three old ladies can figure out how to get @paramountplus you can too . Guilty Party avail to stream now 👵🏻👵🏻👵🏻," Beckinsale captioned the post.
While most of her followers laughed at the photo in the comments, one person wrote, "You do not want to be called old."
Beckinsale quickly clapped back, writing, "I do not care please have at it if it gives you a spark of joy."
Beckinsale is starring in the lead role of Guilty Party, which premiered on Thursday.
The Paramount+ series follows a disgraced journalist Beth (Beckinsale) as she works to tell the story and mend the reputation of a young Black mother serving a life sentence for a crime she says she didn't commit.
