Minnie Driver Quits Twitter Over Bullying

At 44, Minnie Driver is still one of the most stunning women in Hollywood.

But online and through social media, people will pick on you for almost anything.

After the "About a Boy" actress was photographed on vacation with her son Henry, 5, in Miami earlier this week -- and even though she sported a bikini body better than women half her age while lounging on the beach or by the pool -- people tweeted "mean" comments, the actress posted.

"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," she tweeted on Wednesday.

She continued, "I'm out of this Twittersphere for a while. It's too mean sometimes, about your body , about your soul. Not worth it."

This is a shame since last week, Driver told ABC News she was absolutely "mad" -- in a good way -- about being on Twitter.

"It's where I get my news from these days," she said. "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."
