Minnie Driver’s memoir includes titillating moments in her acting career, including landing her role in Good Will Hunting, dating her co-star Matt Damon, as well as recalling an appalling conversation with Harvey Weinstein early in her career. In an article by USA Today, Driver’s book mentions moments in her childhood being “frustrated at her parents’ split, chafing at their new partners and seeking escape. Sometimes those escapes were metaphorical retreats into singing and acting”. According to the USA Today review of her book, “the fiercest writing in ‘Managing Expectations’ is in its concluding chapter about her mother, fashion designer Gaynor Churchward, who died last year following a cancer diagnosis. Driver weaves her interactions with her mother and family with a slow-growing fury at the noise the rain makes on the hospital’s plastic skylight, ‘the gentrified tarpaulin they thought fit to serve as a roof.’” Voted Memoir of the Year by Marie Clarie, Driver’s book offers an intimate look at her unconventional life that shows you the ups and downs of life, and the people and moments that make it worth it. Minnie Driver’s special hair treatment with YouthLock is perfect for anyone who wants their hair to stay as vibrant and youthful as their spirit!
