Movie star Minnie Driver almost sold her dream Hollywood Hills home after she split from fiance JOSH BROLIN - because the place just brought back bad memories.

The actress bought the home six years ago (98) and almost gave it up in 2002 after she split from Barbra Streisand's stepson.

Driver says, "Even though we never really lived in it together, this house represented so much of that relationship.

"I though, 'It's not the house's fault; it's me and what I'm bringing to it. I believe that about a house. You infuse it with where you're at.

"So you repaint it, fill it with life again of a different sort, and start a new chapter. I'm so glad I didn't let it go."
