Driver sick of being branded trailer trash
09:30 10 March 2005
Minnie Driver says she is fed-up with being treated like trailer trash - just because she lives in a caravan.
The millionaire Hollywood actress says she can't shake off the image ever since she admitted to having a trailer home in Los Angeles.
Driver, who is the daughter of a multi-millionaire financier and spent most of her childhood living in a luxury Barbados estate, said people are wrong to take pity on her.
She moaned: "I read somewhere, 'Minnie's down on her luck, living in a caravan'. But that's just not true.
"It's actually more like a house. It's really beautiful. It looks out over the ocean right on the break that I surf."
Minnie first admitted to living in a caravan last year, just before launching her singing career, and insisted she loved her unconventional home.
She said at the time: "I have a beach-side trailer. It's a nice trailer, in a nice trailer park. And no, it's not like the trailer park that Eminem lived in. You can fix them up really beautifully."
