Minnie Driver Says Marrying Josh Brolin Would Have Been ‘Biggest Mistake’ of Her Life

In an interview with the British website The Sunday Times, Minnie Driver confided that her aborted marriage to Josh Brolin in 2001 would have been “the biggest mistake” of her life, due to a trauma inherited from her childhood.

No regrets. In October 2001, Minnie Driver and Josh Brolin, who had been a couple since they met on the set of “Slow Burn,” called off their wedding five months after announcing their engagement. A decision that the 54-year-old actress does not regret for a single moment. “The only time in my life that I was engaged could have become, I think, the worst mistake of my life,” she told the British website The Sunday Times.

Minnie Driver says she never had a normal relationship with marriage because of the trauma caused by her parents’ separation. She reveals that she discovered, at the age of 12, that their divorce had been caused by the double life led by her father, who was married to another woman, with whom he had also started a family. A situation that deeply influenced her vision of marriage.

“If you look at my history, it led me to want to get married, and to choose men who were completely wrong for me. So there I was, hoping to get married and live this conservative version of a relationship, looking for men who had no desire to get married, and if one of them wanted to get married, I would run away,” explains the woman who has a son, Henry, 15, from her relationship with producer and screenwriter Timothy J. Lea. And who is now in a relationship with filmmaker Addison O’Dea.

“Today I am with a man who does not want to marry, but who turns out to be the most devoted, loving, extraordinary man… Everything I dreamed of finding in a husband when I was younger, he has it,” she adds.
