Slawson, Nicola (13 February 2018). "Minnie Driver cuts ties with Oxfam over sex scandal". The Guardian. Archived from the original on 14 February 2018 . Retrieved 17 March 2022. Amelia Fiona " Minnie" Driver (born 31 January 1970) is a British and American actress. She rose to prominence with her break-out role in 1995's Circle of Friends. She went on to star in a wide range of films including the cult classic Grosse Pointe Blank, Gus Van Sant's Good Will Hunting for which she was nominated for both the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and a Screen Actors Guild Award, the musical The Phantom of the Opera, Owning Mahowny, and providing the voice of Lady Eboshi in Hayao Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke.

The Vernon God Little author reads his latest book about his adventures in Trinidad trying to make a film featuring a parrot. Like Driver, I had a child on my own, and so I ask her: was her son the first truly committed relationship she had been in? If that doesn’t sound like a strange question, it’s just that… In 1998, she had a relationship with Good Will Hunting co-star Matt Damon, and in 2001, she was engaged to Josh Brolin for a short period of time. In two cases the adult stories are fleshed out a bit more. After only hinting at other men in her life, the first is her dating Matt Damon. It is an abnormal revelation that is obviously meant to skewer the famous actor who dumped her without notice. Minnie, all these years later, is still miffed and upset, and Damon looks like a real bad guy. Bitette, Nicole (12 October 2016). "Minnie Driver reveals she was sexually assaulted as a teenager, says it happens to all women". New York Daily News. Archived from the original on 12 October 2016 . Retrieved 12 October 2016.I think this quote, taken from an essay/chapter called “I’m Going to Miami”, reveals a lot about Minnie Driver’s personality - true when she was a child, and probably still true. She describes herself (and also her signature mop of hair) as “a lot”: she has a big, emotional personality, she asks a lot of questions, and she doesn’t know how to not be herself, even though her chosen vocation is acting (and also singing and writing). In 2016, Driver revealed that she was sexually assaulted at age 17 while on holiday in Greece. [37] [38] Before Good Will Hunting, she starred in Circle Of Friends, playing the goofy, adorable lead in the adaptation of Maeve Binchy’s bestselling novel; some years later, she played Carlotta in the Phantom Of The Opera movie, and got into television playing Stanley’s bawdy English girlfriend on Will And Grace. More recently, she has portrayed a drug-addicted traveller, straight out of jail, living a life of crime in the American south in The Riches. And then a middle-class British mother with a wheelchair-user son in the comedy Speechless (there is a very funny episode featuring John Cleese as her dad). Spangler, Todd (17 March 2021).
