Actress MINNIE DRIVER is an established sex symbol - but as a teen she considered herself so unattractive she came up with secretive ways to get attention. Driver, at sixteen, was so desperate to catch the eye of one teenage boy that she pretended to be a model and promptly signed up to be in his art class. But familiarity bread contempt and her plan backfired. Driver admits, "He would always draw me with a really big a** and really big thighs."
