Minnie Driver believes only ''Angelina Jolie'' is one of very few people who act who do not have to deal with constant rejection.
Minnie Driver believes being an actress is ''90 per cent rejection''.
The British star - who is best known for her Oscar-nominated performance in 'Good Will Hunting' - believes very few people in showbusiness can do all the films they want to, but has learnt to put other things in place of her work.
She said: ''My job is 90 per cent rejection. It just is. Unless you're Angelina Jolie or maybe one of a handful of actors working amongst the millions you are going to be not getting stuff more than you're getting stuff. But life is so much bigger than work.''
Minnie has a three-year-old son named Henry, and she believes being a good mother is the most important thing she can be.
She added to The Scotsman newspaper: ''I'm a mum first and foremost - that's my most important job. Yes, I've got to put food on the table because I'm a single parent. But I don't think about it nearly as much any more because I'm so wrapped up with Henry - play-dates and nursery and the stuff of life.
''I have the same insecurities that most people have, and they're probably a bit more heightened because of what I do, but it's so much less than it was because I've got to be more together and grounded because of my kid.''
