Hilary Swank has already raced through a full day’s schedule before the LA restaurant where we meet has had time to switch its menu from breakfast to lunch. She has taken her father to a doctor’s appointment, held a conference call for her new clothing line, Mission Statement, and run to a meeting about one of the three TV shows she is currently producing, along with three films. “Constant everything!” she grins, looking casual and efficient in a sundress. She has arrived just in time to order a piece of salmon – to go. The two-time Oscar winner still has a lot left to accomplish.
Swank, 44, has been having a busy summer. If you haven’t seen her for a while, that is due to her making a necessary choice. Just before Christmas 2014, her father Stephen, a former chief master sergeant in the Oregon air national guard, underwent a life-saving lung transplant. For three years, Swank was his sole live-in carer, which meant saying no to Hollywood – or, as she phrases it: “I was saying yes to something else that I wanted to be a part of.”

Big news for Hilary Swank this week! First her wedding to Philip Schneider and now her affordable luxury lifestyle brand Mission Statement has announced that they are partnering up with Nordstrom as their exclusive retailer, joining the ranks of similar limited-distribution brands Topshop, Charlotte Tilbury, Sezane and Reformation.
The iconic department store will carry more than 10 pieces from the Oscar-winning actress’ brand, which was founded on the notion that chic clothing should be made to work for all aspects of life. But not only that — every single item in the Mission Statement collection is designed for women, by women, working with heritage design factories to create pieces in the finest Italian fabrics. In other words: the line merges high fashion, high function and high performance.
And the prices won’t exactly break the bank, either. You will soon be able to snap up Mission Statement jackets, layering tops, versatile leggings and couture cut dresses made of cashmere, leather and luxury woven fabrics starting at $145 and up to investment pieces at $1,150.
Swank released a statement about her collection’s latest venture via publicist expressing her excitement about the partnership. “Whether you’re looking for washable lather and cashmere … or comfy pants that looks as good paired with sneakers traveling on an airplane as they do wearing heels attending a cocktail party, Mission Statement has the, I’m thrilled to be partnering with Nordstrom on bringing this line to women who are focused on achieving their personal Mission Statement.”
Drake will introduce the opening-night screening of the indie drama ‘Monsters and Men’ to a hometown audience.
Hilary Swank, Mahershala Ali and Maggie Gyllenhaal are set to take part in candid conversations as part of the Toronto Film Festival’s In Conversation With… series, organizers said Thursday.
Swank, in Toronto to tout What They Had, the directorial debut from screenwriter Elizabeth Chomko, will talk about her Oscar-winning career, as will fellow Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali, who is bringing his latest film, Peter Farrelly’s 1960s-set road trip movie Green Book, to TIFF for a world bow.
Actor and producer Hilary Swank and social venture entrepreneur Philip Schneider’s love story started with a seemingly bottomless brunch that went on forever. “It was a blind date set up by actor Misha Collins’s wife Vicki and another close friend Jean. We met at 10:00 a.m. and parted ways at 11:00 p.m.,” Hilary laughs. “We clearly enjoyed our time!”
A year and a half later, the two were getting engaged. “We don’t know why waited that long!” Hilary admits. The setting was Colorado, where they were on vacation, and it was 2016. “We stumbled upon a beautiful sanctuary deep in the mountains,” Hilary remembers. “It had a stunning waterfall that cascades down to rustic cabins built in the 1800s surrounded by beautiful pines and big skies. One evening, Philip dropped to his knee in front of the waterfall and proposed—he sweetly made sure my dogs were nearby so they could bear witness!”
