The actress’ searing dramas have earned her a pair of Oscars, but she was ready for some romance and comedy in her career, and she scored both in a new film.
WHILE Hilary Swank was making the inspirational drama “Freedom Writers” with writer-director Richard LaGravenese, he told her that for her next film, “I want you to do something lighter and funny and girlie. You are such a girl, and you are so funny.”

Beehive? Bob? Crewcut? Mullet? Hilary Swank’s next hairdo is out of her hands, as Oprah Winfrey took the shears to the Oscar winner as part of a charity effort airing Friday on her talk show.
Swank, 33, is likely to end up with a short ‘do, as Winfrey reportedly cut some nine inches off her hair to donate it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, an initiative dedicated to supporting and encouraging women who have lost their hair during cancer treatment.
“It’s taken months to get to this moment,” Winfrey says. “It involves a two-time Academy Award winner, a sharp object, and me.”
“I’ve been growing it for the last six months to donate my hair,” Swank says. “I’ve been taking a lot of vitamins and taking really good care of it, knowing that it would go to a woman in need.”
Also as part of Oprah’s Great American Haircut show, 100 viewers will get 100 makeovers in one hour.
I would normally not post and ask for donations but this is an emergency. Mycah, fellow Famke-Janssen.org, Abbie-Cornish.com, Rose-McGowan.com and Glamour Reese Witherspoon (these last three are co-run with Riikka) webmistress, is in a horrible situation right now. Her house burned down earlier this week and she really needs our help. If you enjoy her work on her sites and can spare anything at all, please consider donating. She is okay but her family lost their home and all possessions and they have no place to stay. You can read about the incident here. If you can help at all, Mycah’s PayPal address is email@example.com. I’m sure that any donations will be more than appreciated!
I just added short promo for Oprah Winfrey Show where Hilary will cut her hair. The episode will air on November 2. I can’t wiat to see Hilary’s new hair.

There are no silver spoons in Hilary Swank’s past, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. It was perseverance and determination that made her dreams come true, she tells Marsha Lederman. And in her latest role, the Oscar darling takes her story on tour.
Vancouver— Yes, Hilary Swank grew up in a trailer park and yes, she and her mother drove to Los Angeles to pursue Swank’s acting career with just $75 to their names. And yes, the two of them lived in their car for two weeks. But no, don’t go feeling sorry for the hardships the Oscar-winning actress has endured. Hilary Swank loved it.

Hilary Swank has signed on to star in another Oscar vehicle: a biopic about Amelia Earhart. The star was at a party in her honor for her Guerlain fragrance, My Insolence, at the Bel Air Hotel when her manager and agents had to leave to take urgent calls about the deal. Swank announced to the crowd, “If this is what it takes for my team to get me my next gig, then let’s hope that Guerlain takes us all to lunch every week.” She signed the next day to play the doomed pilot, who vanished over the Pacific in 1937 while trying to fly around the world solo.
