Movie actors tend to be flexible when it comes to the roles they take on for their different projects. Oftentimes, they end up having to play characters that are not exactly catered to their age, which may not received very well by people. This was exactly the case for Melissa Joan Hart, who is 47 years old and portrays a grandmother in a recent movie of hers. Hart shot to fame through her iconic Sabrina Spellman character on the TV show "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," which ran for seven seasons. Given how much her latest role seemed to impact millennials who grew up watching her play Sabrina, the actress made a post on Instagram addressing their outcry.

A post shared by Melissa Joan Hart (@melissajoanhart)


 

Hart shared that she was proud of her performance as a grandmother in her latest movie, "Would You Kill For Me." The actress said that she was "flattered" that her fans couldn't think of her as a grandmother, even though it was possible to become one at the age of 47. She also said, "It's also refreshing to go viral for my work and not something controversial." The actress ended the post by making a funny reference to her previous roles in "Clarissa Explains It All" and "Sabrina the Teenage Witch."

The movie "Would You Kill For Me" narrates the story of an abusive man who was shot in his own home. The story is told from the perspectives of the mother, her young daughter and her grandmother. It premiered in October and fans went ballistic on social media upon seeing a scene where Hart was called "Grandma." This is primarily caused by the fact that a lot of her fans grew up watching her play much younger roles in popular shows.

Nikki Star reacted to the part where Hart was referred to as grandma. She has captioned the video, "I'm convinced that we are living in the upside down. Sabrina is still a teen!!!" The reaction video has gone viral, with over 1.2 million views on the social media site. In the video, the woman expresses her reaction quite hilariously. She appears to be so shocked that she touches her own face to make sure everything is okay.

People in the comments were equally shocked and put down their thoughts in the comments section. @amandalee320 shared, "The fact that Julia Roberts is playing a mom of children at 56, but Sabrina is a grandma?! WHAT?" @shellsbells110 commented, "Nope! Melissa is one year younger than me and I am way too young to be a grandmother!" @wcleggy shared a hilarious incident, saying, "Yesterday, a custodian at work told me I look too young to have a 20-year-old. But last night, the cashier at 5 below asked if the gifts were for my grandchild."

Another man, Todd (@homieblossomentertains), had a few things to say about Hart becoming a grandma in a movie. He begins the clip by laughing in disbelief and saying, "Did I just hear that kid call Melissa Joan Hart Grandma?" The man then pulls up her picture from when she played Sabrina Spellman in the popular TV show and questions how somebody could call her grandma now. He remarks, "I swear to god, the 90s just feels like it was yesterday."
