Minnie Driver Reflects: Why Marrying Ex-Fiancé Josh Brolin Would Have Been ‘The Biggest Mistake’

The ‘Good Will Hunting’ actress added she ‘would carry on wishing to be married, meet men who had no interest in that, and then if one did, run a mile’.

Marriage to Josh Brolin would have been “the biggest mistake” of Minnie Driver's life.

In her 2022 memoir Managing Expectations, the actor and musician known for Good Will Hunting and Grosse Pointe Blank revealed that she discovered at 12 that her parents had never married because her father had a second family and was married to another woman.

The Return to Me star explained how her father's double life affected her interactions with men in a new interview. My history made me want to be married so much and chose men who were so wrong for me, she told The Sunday Times.

“So I would keep wanting to be married and have a conservative relationship, find men who didn't want that, and run away if one did.”

She added, “The one time I was engaged it would have been, I think, the biggest mistake of my life.”

Driver mentioned her engagement to Brolin, whom she met shooting Slow Burn in 2000. Five months after getting engaged in 2001, they split. Brolin, who played Thanos in the MCU and No Country for Old Men and Dune, married Diane Lane and then Kathryn Boyd.

He is Barbra Streisand's stepson and James Brolin's son.

Driver said in her latest interview that she is dating writer and director Addison O'Dea, who also doesn't want to marry.
“I’m with someone who doesn’t want to marry but is incredibly devoted, loving, and extraordinary…”

He is “everything I could have wanted in my childhood idea of a husband.”
