Minnie Driver is glad she doesn't have a daughter.

The 'About a Boy' actress, who has five-year-old son Henry from a previous relationship, is pleased she hasn't had to deal with a girl because she fears parenthood wouldn't have been very pleasant for her.

Speaking to the Daily Mail newspaper, she said: ''I'm so grateful I don't have a girl because when I was young I put my parents through hell. I was conniving, manipulative, emotionally challenged - you name it.''

The brunette beauty insists she's a fairly relaxed parent but encourages Henry to have good table manners.

She explained: ''I think we English eat more politely than Americans, so I insist that he eats nicely ... I am a stickler for good manners when he's around food. His American friends have a burger in hand, they're dropping ketchup all over the furniture, eating with their mouths open, sometimes standing on a chair, and I don't put up with that with Henry.''

Minnie, 44, has even been asked by her friends to help teach their children the importance of good manners.

She said: ''My friends' kids are sent to my house to learn how to eat! Their parents say, 'Can you make my kid have good manners like Henry?' I say, 'Sure, send them round here to dinner'.''
