Back in the late '90s, Minnie Driver and Matt Damon were the "it" couple, but the romance eventually faded. Now, the actress is reflecting on the "tabloid-y" relationship with her "Good Will Hunting" co-star.
"I wouldn't change any of it," she told ITV's "This Morning." "It's magic."
Minnie remembers that time in 1997 and 1998 "so fondly," despite their split was "so dramatically reported on."
The Oscar-nominated star has been opening up about the life while promoting her new book, "Managing Expectations: A Memoir in Essays." Of course, her two-year relationship with Matt is discussed in the pages.
"Matt Damon was just this lovely, talented, great person who was also very young and got famous very fast," she said on "The Chris Evans Breakfast Show with Sky." "And people don't always behave well in situations when you're under pressure."
"It was a very sweet romance that we had," she continued. "And I really do look back on it with such fondness no matter how it ended up. It was just sort of dramatic and tabloid-y and was really unbelievable."
In other interviews, Minnie recalled how "weird" it was seeing their split on magazine covers. It was equally weird seeing Matt and a new love interest on those same covers.
"At the time, it was weird, walking down the aisle in the supermarket with magazine covers in stereo of him making out with his new girlfriend after we'd broken up," she said. "We really did fancy each other, we really were good friends at that point."
