Minnie Driver on her new memoir, favorite Mother’s Day gifts

Minnie Driver on her new memoir, favourite Mother’s Day presents

While Oscar-nominated actress Minnie Driver has been busy recording her podcast, “Minnie Questions,” starring within the new “Romeo and Juliet”-inspired “Rosaline” (out on Hulu this summer time) and writing the just-released memoir “Managing Expectations,” her favourite position stays that of mom to son Henry, 13. “The greatest a part of being a mother is seeing this child develop into a form, humorous, considerate human and being current for each step of that evolution,” she tells Alexa. And he’s already a gift-giving professional: At 7, he gave her “a jar crammed with ideas he had about me being his mom, jokes and recommendation. I’m fairly certain will probably be on my bedside desk without end,” says Driver, 52. No Mother’s Day current might prime that, however these colourful assertion items — hand-picked by the Irish actress — may make a detailed second.
