Minnie Driver says “there are too many ghosts” in her life for them not to be real.
The “Speechless” star recently tapped into the world of scripted podcasts while starring in “The Lesser Dead” — a supernatural series adapted from Christopher Buehlman’s novel of the same name — and she has her own beliefs about the paranormal.
Asked if she thinks super natural exists, she told Stylist magazine: “I think so, there are just too many ghosts in my life for it not to be.
“The idea that we’re the only thing in the universe that isn’t energetically recyclable seems absurd to me.”
Minnie, 52, who recently embraced a spiritual mind, believed the meaning of life had many possible answers.
She added: “For some it’s power, money, love, family. It may be a mixture, I don’t think there is something holy that can explain everything. It is to live life as fully as possible.
“I want to know deep down that life doesn’t have to be any different and that any notion of failure is specious and stupid. And that my son will be fine.
Meanwhile, the actress rose to fame as Skylar Satenstein in 1997’s ‘Good Will Hunting’, and she revealed a “grade and revolting” remark made to her by Harvey Weinstein during her first audition for the role, which greatly affected his confidence.
Speaking on ‘The Ryan Tubridy Show’ on RTÉ Radio 1 on Thursday (16.06.22), Minnie – who has previously commented on the interaction – said: “He said, when I auditioned for ‘Good Will Hunting’ , and it was a powerful and amazing moment. I think auditions are extremely powerful, I was auditioning them as much as they were auditioning me.
“But Harvey Weinstein said he wasn’t going to hire me for this movie because I was ‘a********’, in his words. He was very open about it, he l said to the casting director and to my agent and finally to me.
“At the time, I was a 26-year-old young woman, already with the general insecurities that come with being a young woman, and having this powerful man drop that word on my head and my body on myself was terrible,
“It was terrible and something I would deal with in my head for a very long time afterwards.”
