Eva Mendes isn’t afraid to share her insecurities.

Known for her quippy and relatable online presence, the actress, 49, shared a cute Instagram carousel showing off her ‘fit last week and, in the caption, highlighted a niche but relatable insecurity.

Swapping her typically humorous captions for a humerus one — get it? — Mendes simply wrote, “I hate my elbows.”

In the comments section, The Place Beyond the Pines actress’ followers offered a mixed response, writing things like, “elbows are absolutely ridiculous” and “is there such a thing as a pretty elbow?”

One person commented, “And my knees 😂,” prompting Mendes — the queen of Instagram replies — to say, “Oh don’t get me started on the knees 😂.”

“That’s my next post ♥️,” she joked.

Some fans responded to other aspects of the post, like Mendes' Gucci purse, which received a “Love the bag! ❤️” from Salma Hayek.

Still others left comments assuring her that she has nothing to be insecure about, writing, “With that face, who is looking at your elbows?” and “Not me looking at her elbows, I see nothing wrong 😂.”

And despite Mendes calling attention to them in her caption, her elbows were hardly the star of the post.

The actress looked absolutely stunning in a summery ETRO set in a geometric pattern, which she paired with a green Gucci shoulder bag with gold details.

Her auburn hair perfectly complemented the monochromatic outfit, as did her glowy, fresh-faced glam and gold jewelry.

Perhaps the most relatable part of Mendes’ online persona of all is her love of Ryan Gosling — who doubles as both her “man” and the internet’s.

Most recently, the actress took to Instagram to praise her partner of over a decade for his Barbie Oscar nomination.

On Wednesday, alongside screenshots of news articles doubting Gosling’s ability to play Ken when the first look at the movie was released in June 2022, she wrote, "So proud of my man. So much hate when he took on this role. So many people trying to shame him for doing it."

"Despite all the #Notmyken ridicule and articles written about him, he created this completely original, hilarious, heartbreaking, now iconic character and took it all the way to Oscars," she wrote, adding: "So beyond proud to be this Ken’s Barbie 💕."
