Driver: I'd love to work back in UK

Press Association29 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
