It’s never easy living in the public eye, and Minnie Driver was on the receiving end of some harsh words after taking to the beach in a bikini.

The “Good Will Hunting” star announced on Wednesday (April 9) that she’s decided to take a hiatus from Twitter as a result of “mean” comments made by followers.

Minnie tweeted, “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.”

Furthermore, said the 44-year-old, “I’m out of this Twittersphere for a while. It’s too mean sometimes, about your body, about your soul. Not worth it.”
