Mary-Louise Parker May Quit Acting Over "Mean-Spirited" Internet Users

by at .

Mary-Louise Parker has nearly had it with the blogosphere.

The former Weeds star - who will next be seen in Red 2 and R.I.P.D. - told News Corp Australia that she's "really not into" acting anymore due to the endless stream of hatred on the Internet.

"The world has gotten too mean for me, it's just too b----y," Parker said. "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."

Parker isn't sure what inspires these users, but she can theorize.

"It's sport for people," she said. "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 - or something."

The actress (who looks REALLY good naked) said she tries to stay away from the comments or to brush them off, but it's difficult.

"You have no idea until it happens to you. It doesn't feel nice," she said. "I stay away from it as best I can because I'm too thin-skinned, but still it finds you."

And if Parker does drop out of the business? What might she do?

"I would write still. I write for Esquire and writing makes me happy. I would take care of my kids and my goats. That's about it. Bake. Throw my Internet in the lake."
