Minnie Driver breaks engagement

Seems like actress Minnie Driver isn't able to hold onto a long-term relationship.

The exotic actress has broken off her 5 ½ month-old engagement to actor Josh Brolin, Driver's publicist said Wednesday in a brief statement.

"Minnie Driver and Josh Brolin have decided to cancel their wedding plans. Their decision is mutual and amicable,'' the statement said.

Brolin, however, should be used to the on and off again relationships. Brolin became a stepson to singer-actress Barbara Streisand after she married his father, actor James Brolin, in July 1998.

Driver, 31, and Brolin, 33, began their romance in 1998 on the set of Slow Burn and had planned to marry in mid-April but no date was ever set, Driver's publicist stated.

Driver previously has dated co-stars Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting) and John Cusack Grosse Pointe Blank), but has yet to make the trip down the aisle.

This would have been the second marriage for Brolin, who has two children from a former marriage to actress Alice Adair.

Brolin's film credits include the Kevin Bacon thriller Hollow Man, 1999's The Mod Squad and 1996's Flirting with Disaster.
