Minnie has an English mother and a father who had Scottish origins. Her parents were never married and they eventually separated when she was six years old. Minnie went to Bedales School in Hampshire and when her father moved to Barbados, she spent her holidays with him, so she was partly raised there. Thanks to her mother’s support and encouragement, Minnie enrolled in the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London, where she acquired her first acting skills, receiving a drama degree in 1991. Upon graduation, she went after a career on television, appearing in British dramas such as “God on the Rocks” (1991), “Mr. Wroe’s Virgins” (1993) and “The Politician’s Wife” (1995).

In the initial years of her career, Minnie also often performed as a jazz vocalist and guitarist to increase her income. Her film debut was in “Circle of Friends” (1995) in the role of a baggy Irish student, for which she had to gain 25 pounds. Her performance received recognition but she wanted to seek more unconventional roles, and decided to go for the American film industry. Soon after she secured roles in the James Bond film “Goldeneye”(1995), and “Sleepers”(1996), in which she played alongside Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman, and which took Minnie’s career to a new level. However, her true breakthrough was definitely her role in the well renowned film “Good Will Hunting” (1997), with Robin Williams, with which she made a name for herself in Hollywood, and which brought her nominations for Academy Award and Satellite Award for Best Supporting Actress as well as Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor. Driver also won the London Film Critics’ Circle Award for British Supporting Actress of the Year, all significantly adding to the actress’ net worth.

Some of her other significant roles include the films “Hard Rain” (1998), co-starring Morgan Freeman, “The Governess” (1998) and “An Ideal Husband” (1999), co-starring Julianne Moore, Rupert Everett and Cate Blanchett. In March 2007 Driver returned to television by starring in the American television series “The Riches”, and for this role she was nominated for an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe Award as Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series in 2007 and 2008. Apart from this, Minnie starred in the television series “The Deep” (2010) and also had a notable appearance in the comedy-drama film “Conviction”, winning a Genie Award for Best Supporting Actress.

Minnie Driver’s music career has also been a significant source of income, increasing her net worth. She began making music at a young age and was a part of Milo Roth Band which had a recording contract when Minnie was 19. After signing with EMI and Rounder Records in 2001, she released three albums and co-operated with big names such as Neil Young, The Killers and Elliott Smith.

In her personal life, Minnie dated her colleague Matt Damon 1998 and in 2001 she was engaged to Josh Brolin. However, Driver has never married, but in 2008 she gave birth to a son from her short relationship with TV producer Timothy J. Lea.
