Minnie Driver has recalled how she was once mistaken for Mariah Carey by Stevie Wonder’s companion.
In the course of an interview for BBC’s Pals Will Be Buddies with Cat & Edith, the actress shared a story about the time when she was walking via The Grove shopping centre in Los Angeles when she noticed the iconic musician.
“I’d just come from a photoshoot where by they’d finished a especially significant hair on me, I was heading alongside and I instantly passed Stevie Marvel and his girlfriend and his protection guard,” she recounted. “My coronary heart stopped due to the fact I might walked by him, and I never at any time do this, but I went again and I started off gushing. I couldn’t get the words and phrases out (but I was indicating), ‘No one’s ever meant so considerably to me.’ And I was just gushing at Stevie Wonder.”
Even so, Minnie was left pink-confronted when Stevie’s companion launched her as Mariah.
“He was smiling and he was so sweet, and the security was smiling – incredibly sweet – and then I finished chatting and his girlfriend went, ‘Stevie, it really is Mariah Carey.’ And I went, ‘What? No, I am not, gosh no.’ I was horrified. I was so embarrassed and I did not know what I was supposed to say. So, I was just like, ‘I like you, goodbye!’ and I scurried off,” the 52-year-aged sighed.
Minnie didn’t title Stevie’s husband or wife, but he has been married to Tomeeka Bracy due to the fact 2017.
