MINNIE DRIVER finds it hard working in Los Angeles - because everyone is so beautiful.
The BEAUTIFUL (2000) actress admits she didn't have so much competition looks-wise while working in the UK. She says, "In England with all due respect, we have some of the plainest actresses in the entire world as our greatest. Maybe it's because theatre is the great love of England but you can have dame Judi Dench, a very small, round, middle-aged, lovely, mothering type playing Cleopatra. You know she would melt into the crowd in a second. " (MB/SH/PDD)
