Minnie Driver Was Sexually Assaulted When She Was 17

Minnie Driver Was Sexually Assaulted When She Was 17

Minnie Driver is opening up about being a victim of sexual assault.

The 46-year-old Speechless actress was 17 at the time of the incident and the authorities made her feel like she was at fault.

“I was on vacation in Greece, and this guy, kinda elbow-grabbed me, and said ‘You’re going to dance with me,’” Minnie said in a SiriusXM interview. “I said ‘no’ and I pulled my arm away from him, and he grabbed me by the back of my hair. I tried to kick him, and then he punched me.”

“The way [the police] presented it was ‘this guy was just having a good time and if you’d gone along with it, it would’ve been fine,’” Minnie said. “‘If you’d just danced with him, you wouldn’t be in this position that you’re in now.’”

    My God, everyone was assaulted now? Who’s next?

    Does sound like it was her own fault. If she had just danced with the guy then he wouldn’t have felt that he needed to have his way with her.

    As Donald Trump would say Minnie Driver was asking for it and deserved to have her pussy groped.

  • jane

    of course… bandwagoners… most of whom are so far down on the d-list that claims of assault are their last chance for recognition

  • gradybridges

    you are all sorts of stupid

  • tom

    Me,I’m being assaulted by stupid d-listers

    Way to complete the narrative by bringing Trump into this. It’s exactly what they want to connect to. “Non-sexual assault = sexual assault.” Brilliant.

  • ♥ Ms_Ariz

    I don’t blame Minnie for calling it a SEXUAL assault. I blame JustJared. Way to label a non-sexual assault a sexual assault. Liberal/Democruds politicians must pay you well.

  • VanityInsecurity

    I find that story hard to believe that police officers would say such a thing.. I call BS.

  • Harvey Bank

    How is getting punched in the face sexual assault ? It seems it would be assault.

  • Dee

    i was assaulted and the cop blamed me. i believe her.

  • Penny isafreeloader

    I’m Greek and knowing greek society TODAY it seems quite realistic they would say that. And what happened to her was years ago, so yea, trust me, it’s very very VERY plausible thay told her that.

  • MissyMiss

    Minnie is super thirsty. she was not sexually assaulted, just jumping on the bandwagon. what an idiot.

  • MissyMiss

    yes, all d-list female “celebs” have been sexually assaulted, been to rehab, had an eating disorder and was bullied as a child. *snorts

  • Gina

    She didn’t owe that man a damn thing.

  • VanityInsecurity

    what is that suppose to mean? that Greek people are apart of rape culture? you should word yourself better.

  • Maria M.

    They call this a sexual assault because victim and attacker are of opposite sexes!? Apparently that is enough to label it “sexual” these days.

  • Penny isafreeloader

    I mean that the majority of Greek people are sexist assholes, even people in positions as that of police officers. And they continue to be so in 2016, so I can only imagine what they told her so long ago. Did I word myself better for you now?

  • VanityInsecurity

    So, you’re racist against your own people. Any idea how ignorant you really sound to say majority of Greek people are one way?

  • Penny isafreeloader

    You doubted the credibilty of her words. I explained to you how plausible they can be, based on my everyday reality and experience. But apparently you’re only here to pick a fight with just about anything, so, sure, change the focus of the conversation.

  • VanityInsecurity

    FYI you sound even more moronic. Do yourself a favor & stop typing to me. Your tainted opinion means zero. vlaka.

  • Penny isafreeloader

    run out of decent arguments, did we?

  • AeeJay

    um didn’t you argue first, I mean you did reply first.. so who is arguing? & you do sound like a damn idiot.

  • AeeJay

    um didn’t you argue first, I mean you did reply first.. so who is arguing? & you do sound like a damn idiot.

  • AeeJay

    LOL. go back to Greece to your rape culture people and go think of dumb shit to say to them.

  • LaCroix

    wow. so if Greek people go around thinking its ok to rape.. why isn’t the stats in Greece high in rape? stats say the complete opposite of what you claim against your own people. racist.

  • LaCroix

    your argument was far from decent or even true. your opinion is just that an opinion stats say otherwise. so stfu.
