And no matter how successful or famous you may be, the constant ridiculing from trolls can truly take its toll.

Someone who is loved worldwide can still be a victim.

Take Selena Gomez, for example. America's sweetheart has 167 million followers on Instagram, but not all of them are there to share the love. She said to the BBC that online bullies find a way to target exactly what she dislikes about herself already, making cyberbullying even more hurtful.

Nobody deserves to be trolled...

"She's getting old," one user hatefully wrote.

But Eva wasn't going to let the troll get away with such a sour and unnecessary comment...

"Yes, you're right. Thank God I'm getting old," she cooly wrote back.

Eva is actually happy with the fact that she's getting older...

"That means I'm still here," she continued. "I'm gonna be forty-six soon and grateful everyday that I'm aging. 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."

Fans were seriously impressed with Eva's response...

"Maybe girlfriend meant to type looking gorg or hot," one fan commented. "I guarantee she mistyped cause ain't nothing looking old! Not that it matters but it breaks my heart that someone would send such negative thoughts to anyone. Looking sweet and kind as well."

Eva responded back to the words of kindness...

"Thx for the love! But it really didn't make me upset, it made me sad that she would think that's a bad thing," she wrote. "Getting older is the goal!!!!! Isn't it?!? I can't wait to grow old AF! That's the plan!!! Now, will I try to take as much care of myself in the process? Absolutely! Again thx for your kind words."

Eva Mendes is the one.

We all need to be a little bit more like Eva, and we should start embracing our natural selves and show words of kindness to even those who show nothing but hate and negativity.
