Kate Beckinsale doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to online trolls.

The 46-year-old actress may be known in Hollywood for her age-defying good looks, but on social media, the British star has a reputation for having a razor-sharp tongue.

Beckinsale’s clap-back skills were on full display after she shared photos of herself from the Vanity Fair and Lancôme Women In Hollywood celebration, held at the Soho House in West Hollywood. Beckinsale walked the red carpet in a $1,118 winter white dress by Solace London, with bold, ruffled shoulder embellishment, and kept her makeup soft and fresh with a taupe smoky eye and pale pink lips.

The look was one of Beckinsale’s best of the awards season, yet, some of her 3.9 million followers had other opinions.

When one male follower told Beckinsale she was “looking like one of Madam Tussaud’s artificial puppets,” the actress immediately hit back.

“Let’s swap so I can look like a bald c***ty man,” she wrote, much to the delight of her fans.

The male follower didn’t leave her alone and continued with other comments.

“Why so pettish? In my opinion you're looking much better without all the glamour.”

Beckinsale responded once again, despite being branded “savage” by her other fans.

“Have you tried your compliments on actual women or just inflatable?” she replied. “They might need a polish.”

While some believed the man was goading Beckinsale to display her quick-wit for followers, others stepped in to praise her for expertly sending her troll back under a bridge.

“Hope he has aloe vera for that burn,” one wrote. “This kitty has claws.”

“The most beautiful woman ever and the best at comebacks. We are not worthy!”
