Minnie Driver will not forget her experience filming the 1998 film Hard Rain. In a new interview on SiriusXM’s I Weight with Jameela Jamil podcast, the actress recalled difficult working conditions that left her feeling uncomfortable.

“I remember we were in 20 million gallons of water,” Minnie, 54, shared on April 2. “They built a town. It’s set during this massive storm. There were huge rain machines. We shot crazy hours. It was tough, like it was a tough movie, but everybody else could wear a wetsuit underneath their costume. And I was told by the producers that I couldn’t because they wanted to see my nipples, and that there was no point in having the wet T-shirt if you couldn’t have what was underneath it.”

According to Minnie, “It was very kind of plainly told, like, ‘You are an idiot if you don’t understand that this is what’s going on.’ And I remember saying, ‘This is wrong.’”

The Oscar nominee remembered calling her agent to share the story. Soon after, the Good Will Hunting star realized people wouldn’t speak to her on set.

“I was so punished for it,” Minnie alleged. “It was leaked to the press that I’d called and complained about conditions. But it was if there were nothing to complain about and that I were just complaining.”

Because the movie took seven months to shoot, Minnie said she eventually questioned if she made the right decision by speaking up.

Minnie Driver had a tough time filming the movie “Hard Rain” in 1998. She shared in a recent interview that she had to work in difficult conditions that made her uncomfortable.

Even though she called her agent about the situation, she felt isolated on set. Despite facing backlash, Minnie stood by her decision to speak up about the unfair treatment she experienced during the seven months of filming the movie.
