Hilary Swank Always Thinks About This Before Taking a Movie Role

Hilary Swank Always Thinks About This Before Taking a Movie Role

Hilary Swank takes the cover of Hamptons magazine’s new issue.

Here’s what the 42-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On what she does before bed: “I’m [doing] this thing right now where I go to bed and I think about at least three things I’m grateful for, and it sends me off into a really good, healthy rest.”

On learning to believe in herself: “I have this great mom who says to me, ‘You can do anything you want in life.’ People will tell you, ‘You can’t.’ I had people say, ‘When are you going to give up your hobby?’ I don’t think there’s any better gift you can give a child except the gift of believing in themselves. I think that’s the blessing of now being in my 40s. When I was in my 20s and 30s, I felt alone in my insecurities, like no one else had them, and now I’m like, ‘Oh, we all have them.’ How do we unite through them and see that we’re not alone in them?”

On her positive attitude: “It’s a daily reminder, because I don’t wake up and think, ‘Oh, I can do that.’ I just wrapped a movie yesterday, and every time I take a job I’m like, ‘I hope I don’t eff this up. I hope that I can do it. I hope I can figure it out.’ That goes from my work to who I am as a person. What can I do today to step into my fullest potential? I try to do something that scares me every day so that I feel like I’ve really stepped into my life.”
