Driver: I'd love to work back in UK

29 February 2012

Minnie Driver has said she is happy to return to the UK if she is offered the right role.

The 42-year-old single mum - who lives in Los Angeles with her three-year-old son - stars in new Brit flick Hunky Dory, a musical extravaganza set in 70s Wales. And Minnie said she is happy to leave Hollywood for work.

She said: "I love coming back here to work, I really do. It's about time really. I love being where my family is. I love making films here, it's very familiar."

Hunky Dory is the latest in a string of independent films for the actress, and since The Riches (her award-nominated US TV show with Eddie Izzard) was axed during the writers' strike in 2008, she has only made a few cameo appearances on television.

But Minnie is up for anything, as long as it's "good".

She said: "You have to do things much more quickly in television, which can sometimes help and it stops you being indulgent, but it also means you get incredibly tired. On a film, usually you have a much longer amount of time.

"I don't really care, I just want to do good stuff."

The singer and actress, who has previously revealed she'd love to be on Glee, is keen to do more musicals.

She said: "My favourite thing. 100 per cent. I'd love to do lots more of that."

:: Hunky Dory is released in cinemas on Friday, March 2
