actress said that she finds the experience of seeing her fellow stars under the influence of alcohol to be "lovely" and "weird".
"It's kind of hilarious and daunting seeing your icons kind of hammered," she explained.
"Not necessarily fall-down-drunk - but definitely saying inappropriate things - and it's very lovely and it's sort of weird and awful, and I enjoy it."
Driver also confessed to having one such experience in the ladies' room during this year's Golden Globe Awards, though she declined to name the female celebrity in question.
She recalled "a very gorgeous, lovely, young actress coming out of the stall" who was having problems with adjusting her gown because she had drunk too much.
"I did stop and help her, and I said, 'I'm just glad you're wearing knickers'," she said.
"But I don't think she knew what knickers were because it's an English word, but it was good. It was really good. It was a good story."
