Eva Mendes is taking issue with the way one of her Instagram replies was taken out of context in a news story. 

The retired actress, 46, took to social media on Monday saying she 'wanted to clear up' a few things after her response to a comment lead to a piece claiming she 'denied plastic surgery accusations.'

'Never "denied plastic surgery,"' she wrote while sharing a grab of a headline. 'All I did was reply to a specific comment on SM,' she continued. 'Would never deny that stuff. I’m all for it. All. For. It.'

The screen capture in question read: 'Eva Mendes denies plastic surgery accusation left on her Instagram post.'

The subheadline continued to say that 'the actress clapped back at an Instagram commenter who said she was absent from Instagram due to getting "work done."'

In the caption, the Hitch star laid out her concerns, writing: 'Regarding this "headline" … ummm… Kinda. Sorta. But not really.

'Never "denied plastic surgery". All I did was reply to a specific comment on SM,' she continued. 'Would never deny that stuff. I’m all for it. All. For. It.' 

Mendes went on to critique the idea that she 'clapped back' at an Instagram user, as she strives to genuinely and kindly reply to as many of her followers as possible.

'Also I don’t like the term "clap back,"' Eva wrote. 

'Sounds aggressive to me. As a lot of you know, I reply to as many comments as I can. I don’t clap back; I try to connect/communicate.

'That’s all. Wanted to clear that up,' the actress concluded, before adding a heart emoji.

The post comes after the actress shared a selfie with a friend on Saturday, which counted as one of the rare photos of herself on social media.

When a fan commented and asked why Eva does not appear on her Instagram more often, another user replied by baselessly speculating that it was due to the fact that she recently underwent plastic surgery 'and I don’t think she’s happy with it.'

Ever the polite social media presence, Mendes replied to that user with, 'I’m not sure why I’m answering you but here I go. I’m posting less because I really want to be present for my family. My little ones need me and posting takes up too much time.'

She also responded to the claims about having plastic surgery, noting that 'As far as getting work done, I’ll do that whenever I please.'

The Training Day actress finished her message by writing, 'I personally cannot juggle family and social media. So -big shocker -I choose family.'

Eva is in a longterm relationship with fellow actor Ryan Gosling, and the gorgeous pair share two daughters, Esmeralda Amada, six, and Amada Lee, four.

They met on the set of the drama The Place Beyond The Pines in 2011. 

Mendes, whose last screen credit was all the way back in 2014, has previously been vocal about her preference for being present with her family as opposed to remaining very active on social media.

As recently as last month, the beauty explained that her recent protracted break from Instagram came after one of her daughters complained to her about being 'on the phone too much.'

And as for cosmetic procedures to remain youthful, Eva has been open about that too.

Last November, the star posted a somewhat disturbing selfie showing seven large needles injected into her neck.

In the post's caption, she explained that the procedure was called mono-threading, which is a treatment in which threads are stuck into the skin to aid in lifting and tightening. 

'This spa-home away from home is incredible! No office with bad fluorescent lighting. No sterile office vibe,' Eva wrote. 

'This is my go to for all things beauty. A home where you can relax while being tortured by the best of the best. This is my happy place!'
