Hilary's Home Journal

Hilary's Home Journal

Academy Award winner Hilary Swank nabs another cover, this time the January 2008 issue of Ladies’ Home Journal. She opens up about the joys of risk taking, her love of animals and never saying no to adventure.

On why she’s happy with herself:
“I love the fact that I think I’m the type of girl who can hang with the poorest of the poor and the richest of the rich and still fit in. It’s probably one of my characteristics that I’m most proud of.”

Her thoughts during the sojourn to Northern India after her separation to husband, Chad Lowe:
“I just sat with myself and thought, ‘What do I need right now? What do I need to do for myself.’ It was a time in my life where I felt I had so much…what’s the word? So many eyes were upon me. And that’s so unhealthy, for so many reasons.”

On divorce and moving on: “I just thought, ‘I’ve really got to get out and get back into the world and back into what’s important in life.’ No scrutiny, no ‘what am I wearing through this.’”

On children:
“Since I was 7 I’ve thought I’m going to have kids someday. So definitely, definitely.”

    She looks great. She’s fit, healthy, a good and celebrated actress who kept her life almost tabloid free. Congratulations on a good life. I hope she is blessed with a child in the not too distant future.

  • remember da truth

    Those who think they are clever or superior because they can call Hilary Swank a “horse” are actually too stupid to know the difference between a lion and a tiger!

  • lol

    It’s so fucking funny that people pick on her looks when you all probably look like pigs yourself. Get-a-life!!!

    Are we getting all “MORAL” here?

    If that is the case, Hillary “HORSEFACE” Skkank is the last person you should use as a role model.

    She is such a lovely person that after it was known that she was cheating on her husband that stood by her side and who she became famous BY association – Ms. Skkank decided to make his previous drug addiction the scapegoat for her being a H0!!

    Drug dependence is such a difficult addiction and hard to overcome, it was beyond cruel for her to out him like that especially when she knew that he had kicked the habit!

    Perhaps she had no reason to leave him because he always loved her and supported her!

    Don’t worry, the man she cheated with also cheated on his wife and they both deserve eachother.. It is funny how they are both FUGS and have HORSE faces!

    On point.. In her new movie PS I love you, all I was thinking is where is the saddle! She must be a nice person, but damn, she needs to fix those dental daggers.

    And the part about Chad Lowe, she really didn’t have to do that. He had beaten his addiction, why humiliate him in such a way? Sad case she is.

  • BECKY SMITH

    CHAD LOWE HAS KEPT HIS DISTANCE FROM HILARY..SHE DOES NOT GET THE PRESS OTHER COUPLES DO ..OVERFLOW OF YOUR
    EX..IF SHE DIDN’T OPEN HER BIG MOUTH ABOUT HER DIVORCE THAN THE MEDIA WOULDN’T BE INTERESTED..HANGING OUT WITH HER NEW BEAU JUST AFTER THE DIVORCE..

  • remember da truth

    Granted, she didn’t need to talk about Chad’s addiction, but then again, he didn’t need to be taking drugs and making her life miserable for years, either. Addiction is a disease, right, but it’s also a weak way to avoid problems.
    And just because someone loves you (he also loved her fame and her money — he sued for spousal support, remember?) doesn’t mean you have to stay married to them.

    All this crap about cheating is either written by kids or naive, insecure housewives who watch too many soaps. People who are in love and in a solid relationship don’t cheat. Just because the technicality of a piece of legal paper hasn’t been issued by a government saying you are no longer married does not make your relationship still true and bonded together. People who cheat have already had the relationship break down. Anyone with any bit of life experience knows that.

    And such anger and hatred for someone you don’t even know, just because they have big teeth — hmmm….. Maybe you are projecting your own problems onto someone rich and famous? Get help! Don’t sit and vent your witchiness out on a blog, for God’s sake!
