Hilary Swank Covers 'Marie Claire' November 2009

Hillary Swank is khaki cute in a $49 H&M top on the November 2009 cover of Marie Claire, on stands October 13).

On people assuming she’s a loner: “For a long time, I was a loner because [my ex-husband Chad Lowe] was my best friend, and we were really happy just hanging out, he and I. I think it was maybe five years ago that I realized how important my friends were to me, and I realized they were a big part of my letting go. When I got divorced three years ago, I needed them more than ever. I have really good girlfriends. Mariska Hargitay is my best friend.”

On young love and learning from it: “Going through a divorce is horrible. It’s dreams crumbling; it’s your family, your whole life, all of your security, disolving. Having been with Chad so young – we met when I was 18- it was all I knew. It is really hard. I certainly don’t wish it on anyone. I feel more than anything right now that age brings so much clarity. You might take a step back, but then you learn from that step back. I’ve learned a lot from my downs, as well as my ups. Right now, I am in a good place.”

Ms. Swank will play legendary pilot Amelia Earhart in Amelia, out October 23.

    Good that she had friends that stood by her even if she didn’t stay by them when she was in a relationship. A relationship changes the time you can spend with friends, but it seems she totally ignored them. By the way spending all her time with your husband is NOT being a loner. Seems she decided to reconnect with her ‘friends’ when her relationship started having problems. Apparently to have good friends you don’t have to be a good friend.

  • dude

    I just cannot get over how she threw her ex-husband under the bus in Vanity Fair when they annouced their divorce. Chad was the bigger star when they got together and then the tables turned and he seemed to be supportive. There was also his history of drug abuse, that was something for him to discuss not her and then to say that he was jealous of her success was just cruel, as if that was the only problem in their marriage. Then hooking up with her married agent did not do her any favors.

    My grandmother always says that ‘God don’t like ugly’ and that is the case, karma is a bitch. This woman has 2 Oscars and cannot open a movie. She has gone the Halle Berry route, win accolades, up you price per movie, think that the public will watch anything your in because of it (P.S. I Love You-that was just wrong on so many levels) and wonder why you stock falls. Yeah, he was jealous of your success alright. Oscars don’t mean crap unless you can make money for studios. There is only one Oscar winner that can write her own ticket and that is the Streep, I would pay $10 to watch that women read a phone book, that should tell you something.
