Minnie Driver wasn't deemed pretty enough for her Good Will Hunting role



  • Minnie Driver was recently asked about the rudest comment anyone has ever made about her

  • Driver replied that she couldn't name names "because then I'll never work again" but said that a producer of Good Will Hunting didn't consider her hot enough for the role

  • Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Gus Van Sant had to fight to keep her on board. Driver said they "fought very hard" and that she's grateful to them until this day

  • Driver ended up getting nominated for an Oscar for her performance in the 1997 film
