Pregnancy has changed Hilary Swank for the better.
In a guest spot on The Late Late Show with James Corden Monday, the Alaska Daily actress, 48, says expecting twins has left her marveling at the miracle of pregnancy.
“I feel like women are superheroes,” Swank said, adding that she’s now at the 27-week mark. “What our bodies do? I have such, like, a whole newfound respect. I mean, I love women, I’ve always loved women, but now, I’m like, ‘Wow, we can do this!’ ”
And now that she’s in her third trimester, Swank is coming closer to welcoming her babies, and putting some of the unwelcome aspects of pregnancy — and its associated cravings — behind her.

“I have been looking for land since I was in my mid-20s,” says two-time Academy Award–winning actor Hilary Swank. “I find nature to be my happiest place, and animals are my other happiest place. And to be with both of them is everything to me.”
The completion of her new home nestled in the wilderness of the southwest Colorado mountains was a dream come true for the star of ABC’s Alaska Daily, who is currently expecting twins with husband Philip Schneider. “We found this 168-acre piece of land that was just magical. It just called to us and we couldn’t stop thinking about it. It was great that we were in the middle of nature. We can’t see our neighbors, no one for miles—we just had [it all] right there.”
Swank’s desire was to build a dream home that was sustainable and blended into nature. She wanted large-scale windows that would frame the expansive views of the mountains, and a place where they could grow their own food. She also cared about their rescue animals having space to roam freely.
