But harmful comments soon flooded the 43-year-old’s social media account. While a Boomerang of the actress holding a starfish received further criticism, as fans questioned Barrymore’s stance on animal rights.

But Barrymore proved she is above the pressures of social media, as she shared an inspiring post in response:

The actress reminded followers that “pretty is on the inside” and advised them that “if you don’t have something nice to say… don’t say anything at all”.
