‘Weeds’ actress Mary-Louise Parker is at a crossroad and admits she is seriously considering quitting acting because of the onslaught of negative social media criticism.
During an interview with News Corp Australia, Parker admits, “I am almost done acting because the world has gotten too mean for me, it’s just too b**chy.”
The 48-year-old award winning actress laments, “All the websites and all the blogging and all the people giving their opinion and their hatred … it’s all so mean-spirited, it’s all so critical.”
“It’s sport for people; it’s fun to get on at night and unleash their own self-loathing by attacking someone else who they think has a happier life. I stay away from it as best I can because I’m too thin-skinned, but still it finds you.”
After venting she seemed to soften her stance about hanging up her successful career. “It’s only started happening to me recently that I’ve felt weary of it all, so I don’t know. There’s another play I wanna do … and I wouldn’t mind doing a couple more years of a TV show, but after that not much more.”
You can catch her on the big screen beginning Friday, July 19, when ‘R.I.P.D.’ and ‘RED 2′ are released in theaters.
