She was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the 1997 film Good Will Hunting, as well as for an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe for her work in the television series The Riches.

Driver was born to parents of English, Irish, Scottish, Italian and French descent. She was raised in Barbados and educated at Bedales school near Petersfield, Hampshire, England, and the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London. Prior to her success as an actress, Driver was a member of a band called Puff, Rocks and Brown; the band was signed to a development deal with Island Records, which ended without a release.

Canadian music producer Colin Craig assisted in the eventual release of “Everything I’ve Got in My Pocket”, which reached No. 34 in the UK, and a second single, “Invisible Girl” peaking at No. 68. An album, Everything I’ve Got in My Pocket, also reached No. 44 in the UK album chart, backed by a group that includes members of The Wallflowers and Pete Yorn’s band. Driver wrote ten of the eleven songs on the album and also covered “Hungry Heart” from Bruce Springsteen’s The River. In 2004, Minnie Driver was the support act for The Finn Brothers on the UK portion of their world tour.
