Melanie Griffith responds to haters accusing her of having 'man's legs'

Melanie Griffith has no patience for online bullying.

The actress posted an "unfiltered" selfie to hit back at haters. She captioned her pic: "Here ya go. Unfiltered. I'm 58. And I'm playing Hawaii Five O [sic] playing Scott Caan's Mom. Go ahead... Say some more mean things. Merry Christmas."

The selfie is in response to a photo of her legs last week, which one commenter said, "look like man's legs."

Fortunately, Griffith is getting love from all corners for her stance against "mean things." One commenter wrote, "Meanwhile, the haters are poor, uneducated, mean, & heartless."

Two more cheered, saying, "You are an inspiration," and "Looking awesome! It's 'working girl' for sure." Someone else had a friendly warning: "Remember sunscreen! Nice pic."

Griffith isn't one to shy away from social media statements — she's also been very public about her recent divorce from Antonio Banderas. She posted an Instagram from the aptly named website, with a quote about divorce and the positive caption, "Amen. Love my kids, love my ex's. Always and forever. Nobody's business."

According to TMZ, the divorce was finalized earlier this month. The two will keep the profits of their early movies and split money from movies they made between 2004 and 2014, like Shrek 2, Puss in Boots, Expendables 3 and Machete Kills. Banderas will also provide spousal support of $65 million while Griffith keeps the house in Aspen, Colorado.

The two will sell their home in Los Angeles and split the profits. They're also splitting the profits from a few Picassos — very fancy. Griffith even had her Antonio tattoo removed. Judging from her "unfiltered," love yourself attitude, Griffith is finally ready to move on.
