She was once in a band called Puff, Rocks and Brown and it appears Minnie Driver is still living up to the name of her former group.
Well, the first part of it anyway.
The Good Will Hunting star, 44, was seen sucking on a cigarette outside a friend's place in Beverly Hills on Friday and seemed to be enjoying the nicotine more and more with every mouthful.
In sunglasses, a chic blue top and eye-catching cobalt heels, Minne Driver looked youthful but stressed beneath a cloud of tobacco-smoke.
She also seemed in a hurry as she paced and tapped away at her smartphone.
'I like that she is an amalgamation of a lot of people that I have come into contact with,' she recently said on Huffpost Live.
'I love her, I think she's difficult and fragile, annoying and a really good-hearted mother.'
Driver recently signed up to promote Claritin - a drug used to treat hay fever - but she might want to think about swapping to Nicorette.
A wide range of cigarettes (including those smoked by Minnie Driver) is available at http://www.cigarettestrade.com/

John Daly isn’t in the field of 95 golfers competing for a green jacket this weekend, but you can still find him at Augusta National at his usual spot in Hooters on Washington Road. Daly, who hasn’t played at Augusta since 2006, has an annual tradition of meeting with fans and selling merchandise.
Daly spoke with Ewan Murray of The Guardian, and said that he still feels good about his golf game — Daly can still boom drives miles off the tee. The two-time major champion missed time recovering from elbow surgery last year, but has made two of five cuts on the PGA Tour this season.
In his autobiography which released in 2006, Daly wrote that he drank 514 gallons of Diet Coke per year. He’s knocked that down to 10-12 cans a day.

Wayne Rooney missed the opportunity to be a world class player because he lacked discipline, claims Joey Barton. The QPR midfielder, never shy of offering an opinion, was scathing of the Manchester United striker during an interview with Radio 5 live Sport about England's World Cup hopes.
"Our players aren't world class. They are not world class," Barton, who made one appearance for the national team, said.
"Rooney could have been world class but look at his mentality compared to Cristiano Ronaldo. Polar opposites.
"Why does Ronaldo achieve what he achieves and Rooney doesn't? When you see Wayne Rooney smoking cigarettes, does he live his life correctly?
"From the questions I've asked of players who have worked with both....he (Ronaldo) is in the gym or honing his game. Barton continued: "The level of discipline he has for his chosen profession is the reason he is the best player in the world at the present time, and that's the reason Rooney isn't."
Barton also dismissed any hope of the Three Lions succeeding in Brazil this summer. The former Manchester City and Newcastle player pointed to the fact there appears to be a lack of belief right at the top of the organisation.
"If the coach doesn't believe, the organisation doesn't believe, if the media don't believe, the players.....nobody believes we can win it. So we're not going to win it," Barton said.
"When you see Greg Dyke's reaction to the World Cup draw, for me that said everything I need to know."
