Julia Roberts is an all-time Hollywood legend. Her incredibly successful career is one that millions of aspiring actors hope to emulate. Not only that, but the actress seems to be just a generally delightful human being.

Social media is one of those things that many actors take part in, maybe because they feel like they have to, or maybe it's just that they want to connect more with their fans.

Julia Roberts held out for quite a while, but in June of this year she finally joined Instagram. Roberts has been fairly active on the platform since.

With the Toronto Film Festival going on, there are a lot of fancy events and red carpets where the stars of the movies get to wear gorgeous gowns, and when Roberts was there, she channeled the iconic Joan Crawford.

The Instagram page 'The Vintage Costume Collector' posted a photo of the star in a stunning dark dress next to Crawford as a side-by-side comparison.

They said "Over the weekend Julia Roberts looked stunning in this gorgeous full length gown designed by Dsquared2 and in a little way has brought back the shoulder pad to the red carpet at the Toronto film festival. I love it. Full length stylish classic elegance."

However, the comments weren't quite as supportive. Because the post also asked "who wore it better," some responses weren't exactly that nice, but what they didn't know was that Roberts wasn't going to take their criticism lying down.

One user wrote "Joan Crawford looks way better in my opinion more classic and refined and Julia is wearing ugly black nail polish!"

But here's the thing, a lot of us make these comments about celebrities and assume they will never see them, but sometimes they do.

Roberts actually saw the comment and took the time to reply and her response was absolutely perfect.

"It is in fact a navy polish with garnet crystals as a grounding accent. In case you would like to edit your comment from 'ugly back nail polish' to ugly navy polish with Garnet crystals. Just sayin'."

She has previously spoken out about hate online, and that was why she was so hesitant to jump into the social media world.

In 2013, she spoke with Marie Claire and said. "[Social media is] kind of like cotton candy: It looks so appealing and you just can’t resist getting in there, and then you just end up with sticky fingers and it lasted an instant. There’s an anonymity that makes people feel safe to participate in hatefulness."

Hopefully people can one day learn to be little bit nice on the internet, because even celebrities have feelings and words can hurt!
