Cape Town – Kate Beckinsale had the wittiest caption to her latest Instagram post – but trolls gonna troll, amirite?

"We have a family policy that her bum and my face can never be photographed together in case they look identical," she wrote on a post of her hiding her face from the paps, we assume.

The Underworld actress looked gorgeous in a leopard print coat and skinny black jeans – but a user somehow still found something negative to say.

"It can’t be good if your calves and thighs are the same size?" they wrote on the post. But the 46-year-old wasn’t going to let that slide.

In possibly the most gracious, and still salty, of responses, she quipped, "The @springboksofficial and I are doing ok thanks so much."

With over 64 000 likes on that post – and world champions ourselves – not that it matters what anyone has to say about your body, but we couldn’t agree more.
