Minnie Driver – Then
We first fell in love with Minnie Driver when she played the role of Irina in 1995’s James Bond film, GoldenEye.
The talented, stunning British-American actress stole the show in that film, and went on to steal our hearts in 1997’s Good Will Hunting, where she played the gifted Skylar, opposite Matt Damon and Robin Williams – a role which earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress, as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award.
But that was far from being the highest point in her career.
Minnie Driver – Now
In March 2007, Minnie Driver returned to television, where she took on a role in the FX Network’s serial drama, The Riches, – a role which garnered her an Emmy Award nomination, and won her a Golden Globe Award as Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series in both 2007 and 2008.
In 2016, Driver landed the lead role in ABC’s sitcom, Speechless, which is currently in its third season.
Courtney Love – Then
Courtney Michelle Love will probably always be associated with another great ’90s icon, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.
Love and Cobain were married for just two years – between 1992 until his death in 1994 – but they did have a daughter together in that time, Frances Bean Cobain.
Love formed her own grunge band, Hole, back in 1991, and their 1994 album, Live Through This, received wide critical acclaim and multi-platinum sales.
Courtney Love – Now
In recent years, Courtney Love has left her band, Hole, and gone on to perform as a solo artist.
In 2012, Love appeared in a large advertising campaign for Yves Saint Laurent, and in 2014 she went back to acting in addition to her musical career, appearing in shows like Sons of Anarchy, Revenge, and in a recurring guest role as Elle Dallas in Fox network’s Empire.
