Minnie Driver Is the Latest Celeb Twitter Quitter… But She Has a Good Reason
Too often than not, celebrities get attacked by Twitter trolls just because they’re in the public eye, but the About A Boy actress isn’t going to take it any longer.
On a recent tropical holiday with her family, including 5-year-old son Henry, she was snapped by looky-loo photogs looking famously fit in a bikini. But “mean” comments from online haters went one step too far.
“I’m out of this Twittersphere for a while,” she wrote. “It’s too mean sometimes, about your body , about your soul. Not worth it.
“God some people are horrible: you try being photographed when you don’t know it’s happening, when you’re on holiday with your kids,” Driver added.
Ironically, Driver has been a long-time self-professed fanatic of the site.
“I’m mad about it!” she recently said in an interview with ABC News. “It’s where I get my news from these days … As a celebrity, it’s having a forum where you can answer the nonsensical rubbish that is written about you or not engage with that. It’s given a little bit of control back, I love it.”
At 44 years old, chances are Driver looks better than you or me, and she has always been an active A-lister, most recently promoting outdoor sports. And very rarely will you see her in a gym, she told ABC.
“I surf and I do ballet,” she revealed. “I don’t really do the gym at all.”
