Despite her A-List status, Eva Mendes is pretty lowkey when it comes to her Instagram habits. The 45-year-old actress and mother-of-two almost exclusively shares professional photographs rather than candid selfies and she explained why in the caption of the one she reluctantly posted on Saturday. "I just can’t do it. I just can’t seriously take a selfie," she wrote. "So for those who’ve asked, here you go and I’m sorry. And for the others who never asked for this, I’m sorry too. #NoFilterNoPersonality"

Despite the self-deprecating caption, Eva's 1.4 million followers loved the selfie — especially because she appears to be wearing barely a stitch of coverage in the photo, letting her naturally stunning skin show. "I like your natural look. You look amazing 😘," one follower wrote, which was echoed by a fan who said, "Love your skin!! You’re beautiful as ever ❤️❤️," and another who asked what we're all thinking: "Beautiful skin! What is your skincare routine?" Yet another commenter simply said, "U look 14" about the 45-year-old actor, and even Liv Tyler chimed in with "Pretty skin!!!😍😍😍😍😍”
Other fans expressed how relatable it is to not feel comfortable turning their phone's front-facing lens on themselves. "I thought I was the only one.. can’t take a selfie if my life depends on it. 😩😂," one shared, while another said, "I feel the same! I take a selfie and then delete it."
