Minnie Driver today on the NY set of Motherhood starring Uma Thurman – lovely makeup, hair beautifully blown out… she’s never looked prettier.

Will always think of her fondly from Good Will Hunting. It’s one of those movies I always watch if I come across it on tv on a Sunday. Like the American President with Michael Douglas, but we’ll save that for another day.

I remember thinking…what an odd casting choice. But they had such chemistry she and Matt so of course it was no surprise they started dating. Until – according to urban legend – he dumped her on Oprah and she had to eat it at the Oscars.

Poor Minnie. VERY unlucky in love. Always the one with the answers, my mother will tell you it’s her jaw. Something about the shape of it being unwelcoming of a happy heart. I think it’s more a case of bad taste in men. They are entirely unsuitable. Or she gets them well before they’re ready.

Don’t you hate being That Girl? The one who suffers through the f*ckery only to see him come through the other side the best boyfriend/husband ever and you don’t get to reap the rewards?

Minnie is That Girl.

She was That Girl for Matt Damon. She was That Girl for Josh Brolin.

And she lost her mind and dated Criss Angel. WTF???

As you know, her baby father remains a mystery. Seriously…everyone’s been tryin’ to know but NO ONE knows. It is still possible to keep a secret in Hollywood.
