Minnie Driver Talks About Privacy And Pregnancy On The Graham Norton Show
Tonight on BBC Two, Graham Norton hears from Minnie Driver about preserving her privacy, being pregnant and the pressure to lose post-baby weight.
In The Graham Norton Show, Minnie tells Graham about her “ridiculously quiet life”.
“I’ve been out with more civilians than dodgy actors, I’m friends with most of my exes,” she says. “I live in a quiet part of LA, I wear knickers, I don’t roll out of clubs at four in the morning…”
About her pregnancy, she reveals: “I was dreadfully sick to begin with.. I have revulsions: raisins and eggs.”
And she says that she’s planning to have her baby in a tank of water. “I think it’s where I’ll be most comfortable, at home, I’m not scared of pain.”
Minnie admits that there is pressure to lose post-baby weight. She says: “I think they [celebrities] get their tummies tucked at the same time as elective caesareans… After five days they’re a size eight again, it’s ridiculous.”
Minnie also provides the music on tonight’s show, performing live in the studio.
Graham is also joined by comedian Jimmy Carr.
