Hilary Swank Is Amelia Earhart

Hilary Swank Is Amelia Earhart

Hilary Swank walks the red carpet of the premiere of Amelia at The Paris Theatre on Tuesday (October 20) in New York City.

The 35-year-old actress stars in Amelia alongside Richard Gere, Ewan McGregor, and Virginia Madsen.

“It’s a responsibility to play someone who really lived,” Hilary told the Vancouver Sun. “And it’s a big responsibility to play someone as iconic as Amelia. I mean, we all have such a great idea of who she was and what she looked like, so there wasn’t a lot of room for fictional license, and we just had to do the best we could to bring honour to that person. Under (director) Mira [Nair]‘s guidance and keen eye — she’s an incredible visionary — we just tried to navigate the best we could, and that is hopefully onscreen.”

FYI: Hilary is carrying a clutch by Roger Vivier.

    When I heard the news that she’s tipped for Oscar, I thought what is Annette Benning doing this year. Of course, she’s also mentioned as potential nominee. Bad luck.
    Except for these oscar movies, Hilary’s other movies suck. Why’s that? Iff she’s nominated, she’ll win.

    maybe im 2 hard on her but her face is really ugly
    i could swear it wasnt that bad when she made that boxing movie
    the makeup just makes her look like a drag
    she’s on renee zellweger’s level of ugly
