Eva Mendes came out fast and furious against social media trolls who accused her of having work done on her face.

The 46-year-old actress, who was supposed to be taking a break from social media, rebuked accusations of plastic surgery.

Mendes revealed last week that one of her daughters inspired her to reconsider her social media habits but returned to Twitter over the weekend to wish a dear friend a happy birthday.

However, her quick return soon attracted some messy commentary from a few of her 2.4 million followers.

After one fan expressed discontent that the “Hitch” star was not interacting on social media as much, a naysayer claimed her absence was caused by some plastic surgery that went wrong.

“She’s had work done and I don’t think she’s happy about it,” the follower wrote. “She was beautiful without.”

Mendes set the record straight and maintained that she is “taking time to really be present with my family.”

“Posting is not really a priority right now,” she continued before attempting to take the high road with the social media troll by adding, “Hoping you and yours are well.”

“I’m not sure why I’m answering you but here I go. I’m posting less because I really want to be present for my family. My little ones need me and posting takes up too much time,” Mendes furthered. “As far as getting work done, i’ll do that whenever I please. But no, that’s not the reason.”

“The reason is I personally cannot juggle family and social media. So — big shocker — I choose family,” she concluded, wishing all her critics “Lotsa love.”

Mendes shares daughters Esmeralda Amada, 6, and Amada Lee, 4, with actor Ryan Gosling. The couple have been together since 2011.
