(Newser) – Annoyed Weeds star Mary Louise Parker was "goaded" into a nude bathtub scene in the Showtime series about a pot-selling mom, she tells More. "I don't think I needed to be naked," she said. "I fought with the director about it, and now I am bitter. I wish I hadn't done that." A producer for Weeds, which begins its fifth season next month, insisted the scene was important to show the character's "vulnerability."
