Minnie Driver Saw a “Hammered” Actress’ Undies at Globes


Yes, the Golden Globes are as debaucherous as you think — just ask Minnie Driver!

The British actress, 40, attended Sunday's awards fest and all the after parties, and "it was amazing," she says during a Friday appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"It's kind of hilarious and daunting seeing your icons kind of hammered," she admitted of the bash, in which, unlike the Oscars, celebs get their drink on during the ceremony. "Not necessarily fall down drunk but definitely saying inappropriate things and it's very lovely and it's sort of weird and awful and I really enjoy it."

One particularly lovely/awful encounter? "I would never, ever say anything but I was in the ladies room and I did notice this very gorgeous lovely young actress coming out of the stall next to me and her dress was tucked into her knickers," Driver dishes.

The Barney's Version actress was quick to help out. "I did stop and help her and I said, 'I'm just glad you're wearing knickers.' But I don't think she knew what knickers were, because it's an English word but it was good. It was really good. It was a good story!"

So, ahem, which star was it?!

"I'm not telling," she vowed. "I'll never tell you."
