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.
