As she just proved clapping back to Internet trolls in the best possible way...

Sadly being a female celebrity nowadays comes with having internet trolls, making it their business to post negative comments and attack you online.

No one knows this more than Drew Barrymore, who shooting to fame at just seven-years-old, had to grow up in the spotlight, living with people judging her on a daily basis.

With a life of media attention however, Drew is a pro at taking down trolls, having to put it into practice this week after ‘cruel’ comments surfaced online about her appearance.

Drew posted a throw back snap of her 12-year-old self, poking fun at her young style and her beauty company, but before she knew it, 'cruel' comments started coming in thick and fast regarding her appearance.

Showing that she’s above the criticism, Drew took down her trolls with a simple Instagram snap of herself getting her haircut.

‘Haters gonna hate,’ her caption read. ‘Yesterday I saw some comments on my Instagram feed about my post that were mean, cruel and ugly. It hurt me. And you know what women do when they get hurt???? They pick themselves up! Go get a haircut. Put on some lipstick and chant “if you don’t have something nice to say…don’t say it at all”’

‘Pretty is on the inside,’ she continued, ‘But a little love on the outside never hurts. #thisfeedisforlovers’
