Minnie Driver is a beautiful woman and looks great not only for her age, but for ANY age. However, some people didn’t seem to think so and after paparazzi shots of her in a bikini during a recent vacation popped up online, she started receiving nasty messages on Twitter about her body, causing her to leave Twitter for good.
“God some people are horrible,” the About a Boy star tweeted to her 81,000-plus followers. “You try being photographed when you don’t know it’s happening, when you’re on holiday with your kids.” The actress was photographed in Miami with her 5-year-old son Henry, playing in the pool and walking across the beach in a pretty printed bikini.
At 44, the British star looked stunning in the swimsuit, baring her toned physique and six-pack. Despite her impressive physique, some critics still directed negative, body-bullying comments towards the Oscar nominee.
“I’m out of this Twittersphere for a while,” Driver tweeted in response. “It’s too mean sometimes, about your body , about your soul. Not worth it.”
I’ve never really understood why some people get off on being mean to others online – especially to celebrities who you don’t even know, but there you have it. It’s a shame that she felt like she had to leave, but social media can be more trouble than it’s worth, so I’m with Minnie on this one.
