Mary-Louise Parker May Quit Acting in the Near Future Because of Bitchy Internet Trolls

Mary-Louise-Parker red eventMary-Louise Parker says she’s “not really that into” acting anymore because of self-loathing gossip enthusiasts.

Hmmm. I wouldn’t know anything about that. I do know that I wouldn’t have much of anything that could be classified as “mean” to say about MLP. I mean, what? She’s a good actress, she seems intelligent, she’s pretty? OH NO.

I’m sure other people can find mean things to say like about her maybe not being a super young embryo anymore and that her character on Weeds was slightly slutty (so they probably make the massively stupid mistake of thinking she is in real life), and she sort of has crazy eyes.

Here’s a gaggle of quotes and reasons why she may quit acting, from News Corp Australia:

“I’m not really that into it anymore,” said the 48-year-old while promoting R.I.P.D. “I don’t know how many more movies I wanna do. I wouldn’t mind doing a TV show again, I’d like to do a couple more plays, but I’m almost done acting, I think.” 

Rather than the job itself, Parker said it was the world that has built up around the entertainment industry that was wearing her down.

“The world has gotten too mean for me, it’s just too bitchy. 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 – or something, I dunno.”

No, Mary. Just no. You should definitely do a guest appearance on Orange is the New Black as a soccer mom drug dealer because there’s just no reason not to and it’s a freaking Jenji Kohan show and I love it.
