Minnie Driver reveals her crush on Blondie, fear of 'Evil Dead'

Posted on

Minnie Driver PCPT

Minnie Driver’s character on NBC’s About a Boy may not know a lot about pop culture, but when Driver stopped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test, she easily proved she was a pro, sharing stories about a longtime love of Blondie and why Tootsie always makes her laugh.

Also making her giggle these days? Her About a Boy character. “I just thought it was very funny,” Driver explained about what attracted her to the show. “She’s very fragile, and I thought it was a different type of character [than you] normally see on television. You don’t see many fragile hippies on network television in America, and I thought that might be an interesting thing to try and crack.”

Watch Driver take EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test below:

About a Boy airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on NBC
