iCarly star Jennette McCurdy said she's not just done with the show, she's done with acting forever.

During her latest podcast episode, iCarly alum Jennette McCurdy said she doesn't foresee ever acting again and shared, 'I resent my career in a lot of ways.'

, Jennette confirmed she considers herself done with acting, and revealed she is not particularly proud of her previous shows."I quit a few years ago to try my hand and writing and directing—it's going great," she said with a self-deprecating laugh. "I quit a few years ago because I initially didn't want to do it. My mom put me in it when I was 6 and by sort of age, I guess, 10 or 11, I was the main financial support for my family. My family didn't have a lot of money, and this was the way out, which I actually think was helpful in driving me to some degree of success."

Jennette, 28, explained that "always, always, always, acting was difficult for me," as she had a tough time dealing with nerves during auditions.TV Remake, Reboot and Revival Status Check: What's Going on With Your Favorite Shows?"Once I started to get the nerves under control was when I started to actually get some traction, but I ultimately quit after my mom passed away because with her death kind of died a lot of her ideas for my life, and that was its own journey, and a difficult one for sure," she shared.

Anna asked if she would ever return to acting, and indeed, many fans hoped Jennette would reunite withand otheriCarlycast members on the upcoming revival. Jennette responded that she returned as a thespian for her one-woman showI'm Glad My Mom Died headtopics.com

"Because of feeling like I don't want to f--king act anymore, 'I'm done.' So I did it just for that show, but I think that one-woman show would be the most of it."

Jennette later went into detail about the embarrassment she felt regarding the type of projects she landed."My experience with acting is, I'm so ashamed of the parts I've done in the past," she said. "I resent my career in a lot of ways. I feel so unfulfilled by the roles that I played and felt like it was the most cheesy, embarrassing. I did the shows that I was on from like 13 to 21, and by 15, I was already embarrassed. My friends at 15, they're not like, 'Oh, cool, you're on this Nickelodeon show.' It was embarrassing. And I imagine there's a very different experience to be had with acting if you're proud of your roles, and if you feel fulfilled by them."
