The full story from Variety:

Driver was asked what the rudest thing anyone in the industry had ever said to her (without naming names).

“The producer did not think I was hot enough to be in that film and did not want me in the film,” Driver said.

“… I really owe Matt Damon and Ben Affleck … [They] fought very hard for me to play that role (Good Will Hunting) and I am grateful to them to this day,” Driver said.

Driver said the comments didn’t really bother her because “‘hotness’ is a perception, and it’s really a point of view, and this dude was no picnic to look at.”
