Kate Beckinsale is soaking-wet while poolside and clapping back at users shaming her. The 48-year-old actress, known for both her sense of humor and firing back at trolls, did not stay silent as a recent Instagram video showed her fun side - when a user asked if she basically does nothing all day, Kate had quite the reply.

The ex to Pete Davidson, fresh from showcasing her rock-hard abs in a tiny tube top, made sure her side was heard. Check it out below.

Scroll for the footage. It showed the Pearl Harbor star looking her usual youthful self. Kate had been filmed standing on a chic poolside deck furnished with cuboid sofas and a coffee table - she was backed by a pool and greenery, although it clearly wasn't a pool day.

Kate stepped from the sheltered area and right under gushing water from above - wearing a hoodie, a long black coat, plus dark pants and chunky boots, the star voluntarily got herself soaked.

The British beauty, who sent out a cute smile and slight laugh, took to her caption, writing: "We’re waxing down our surfboards, we can’t wait for June…"

The video, which has now clocked over 1.6 million views, quickly caught a cry-face emoji from Legally Blonde star Selma Blair, but not everyone was sending Kate the thumbs-up. Straight-up shaming her was a user writing: "Do you work? You seem to an extremely nice life with no work." See Kate's fiery clap-back after the video.

Wading in, Kate put the troll in their place, saying:

"Yes, you can see my ten part show which I shot for 6 months at the beginning of this year on paramount plus - or my movie Jolt, which I promoted this summer, on Amazon . The movie I shot this fall, prisoners daughter will be out in 2022. Hope this helps."

Returning for round 2, the star added:

"And you could buy the skin care line we launched this fall too #mrvlskin. Should you want a treat x."

Celebrating The New Year

Kate is fresh from joining the slew of Hollywood faces marking the start of 2022 on Instagram. Posing all good looks and with one of her cats, The Widow actress told her followers: "And Happy New Year from all of us. Here’s to little furry people and their uncomplicated, loving hearts."

Kate continues to make headlines by virtue of her ex Pete Davidson, now rumored to be dating 41-year-old mogul Kim Kardashian. Beckinsale dated the SNL star for about four months, splitting from him in April 2019.
