Michael Loccisano/Getty Images for Worldwide Orphans Foundation(LOS ANGELES) -- The Internet, blogging in particular, has given everyone a voice and a platform to speak their mind.

It’s also given the haters an avenue with which to attack those they dislike, a fact that might force Mary-Louise Parker, 48, into early retirement.

The Weeds star recently told News Corp Australia that the world has gotten “too bitchy.” All the blogs spewing hatred are just too mean-spirited for her to handle.

“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,” she told the site.

Because of all the negativity, the R.I.P.D. star said she’s not sure how many more movies she has left in her.

“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,” she said.

Parker, who has a son with former flame Billy Crudup and an adopted daughter from Ethiopia, said the negative outweighs the praise people assume actors get all the time.

“It’s a mean culture – it’s reality TV and it’s watching people suffer,” she said. “It’s little girls in pageants and housewives and plastic surgery and people in rehab.”

And what shall the Emmy Award winning actress do if she quits?

“I would write. … I would take care of my kids and my goats,” she said. "That’s about it. Bake. Throw my Internet in the lake.”
