Not only is Minnie Driver an accomplished actress and director (Circle of Friends, Good Will Hunting, The Phantom of the Opera) but she is one of the handful of down-to-earth Hollywood moms who puts family first. This scores high in my book. And while I love her real name Amelia, I also appreciate her choosing a nick name in childhood that rolls off the tongue, as I had to result to similar means in grade school. Who would not think twice about pronouncing Minnie?
All this said, it’s understandable why I’m especially appreciative that Minnie and her son, Henry, are Paper Culture fans: “Henry and I wrote all this birthday thank you’s using Paper Culture note cards. They are absolutely our favorite way to stay in touch.”
I was absolutely tickled when I realized that Minnie and Bree Turner, another strikingly elegant, versatile, self-possessed actress, shared more than Gerald Butler as a co-star. It turns out that Bree and her daughter Stella are also Paper Culture fans.
I particularly remember Bree in the mega-hit The Wedding Planner (2001) as a nervous
bride, alongside Jennifer Lopez (likely because I got married this same year!), but really noticed her in the recent RomCom, The Ugly Truth with Mr. “300” Butler. Bree tells us, “I’m officially now a Paper Culture convert. Chic, sweet and environmentally responsible, this company is creating the most charming designs. I’m in love.”
We’re smitten with both of these two lovely ladies here at Paper Culture.
