Social media is a great way to share photos of your baby with your family and friends. Unfortunately, if you're a celebrity and you use social media this way, it also means that you're opening yourself up to criticism.

That's what happened to Julia Stiles when she posted an innocent photo of her and her son.

Julia Stiles is known for her roles in Save the Last Dance and 10 Things I Hate About You. More recently, she reprised her role as Nicolette "Nicky" Parsons in the latest Jason Bourne movie.
