Hilary Swank is the third youngest woman in history to win two Academy Awards for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role". An aficionado for anything that involves the outdoors, she enjoys: sky diving, river rafting and skiing.
She subsequently had a supporting role opposite Scarlett Johansson and Josh Hartnett in Brian De Palma's The Black Dahlia (2006), starred in Freedom Writers (2007), the true story of Long Beach schoolteacher, Erin Gruwell, The Reaping (2007) for Warner Brothers, and reunited with her Freedom Writers (2007) writer/director, Richard La Gravenese, starring in the film adaptation of Cecelia Ahern's novel, P. She won the lead role of Brandon Teena in Boys Don't Cry (1999) after hundreds of other actresses had been considered and rejected over the course of three years. [on playing Annie Sullivan] I think when you're playing a real character you have an extra responsibility to do it really right, so because of that, I do extensive research.
Hilary was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, to Judith Kay (Clough), a secretary, and Stephen Michael Swank, who served in the National Guard and was also a traveling salesman.
Her maternal grandmother, Frances Martha Dominguez, was of Mexican descent, and her other roots include German, English, and Scottish.
But she was fibbing, and when Peirce later confronted her with the lies, she winningly responded: "But that's what Brandon would do.". I read the lines, but I read in-between the lines and try and find the qualities in that person that makes them human and I hopefully try and bring that out in what I do.
Her maternal grandmother, Frances Martha Dominguez, was born in California, to a family of Mexican ancestry (with Spanish and Native American roots). [on working as an actor] I've realized that as an actor you have to just keep working really hard and studying your craft.
Her other ancestry is English and German, with smaller amounts of Northern Irish (Scots-Irish), Swiss-German, Dutch, Scottish and Welsh. Although she was naturally athletic from high school, she totally changed physically to play Maggie in Million Dollar Baby (2004). I think I thought maybe things would be easier after the first Academy Award, that I would get better job opportunities, but then you really realize that there's not a whole lot of great quality out there, for women especially.
During her early childhood, her family moved to Spokane, Washington, and when she was six, to Bellingham, Washington.
Hilary was discovered as a child by producer Suzy Sachs, who coached her in acting.
