Hilary Swank Took A Break From Acting For This Noble Reason

Hilary Swank is opening up about the reason behind her taking a break from acting.

The 46-year-old actress, who will next star on Netflix’s Away series, took some time away from the limelight in 2014 to care for her ailing father who was in need of a lung transplant.

“It was supposed to be a year, because it takes a year to see if an organ transplant takes,” Hilary shared in her cover story with Health magazine. “A lung transplant is the most difficult of all, as it’s an incredibly delicate organ.”

She added, “The plan was to take off a year. I became my dad’s health advocate. One year quickly turned into two, and then three. And, thank God, prayers were answered. He is healthy and doing really well five-plus years later.”

Hilary also explained that becoming a health advocate isn’t for everyone.

“It takes a lot of energy, love, and edifying yourself on the matter at hand,” she admits. “The ups and downs are so challenging and can be overwhelming.”

Her advice to those taking on that role? “Make sure that you’re taking time for yourself and that you vocalize what your needs are to the people who are around you so they can help support you.”

Hilary Swank's 'P.S. I Love You' Is Getting a Sequel

P.S. I Love You will forever be one of the most romantic and heartbreaking movies of all time – and it’s getting a sequel movie.

The original 2007 movie, which starred Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler, centered on Holly, a widow who discovers that her late husband has left her 10 messages intended to help ease her pain and start a new life.

Now, Variety is reporting that Alcon Entertainment has acquired film rights to “Postscript,” the follow-up novel from Cecelia Ahern.

The upcoming sequel will pick up seven years later and Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the P.S. I Love You letters on her podcast.

A few other movie sequels were just announced, including one for Captain Marvel!

'The Hunt' Gets New Release Date After Being Pulled in 2019 Over Mass Shootings

The Hunt is getting a release date nearly six months after it was supposed to debut in theaters.

If you don’t remember, the Universal movie was pulled from the release slate in 2019 after some mass shootings occurred. It was unclear at the time if the film would ever be released, but now, you can expect it to hit theaters on March 13, 2020.

Here’s a synopsis: Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don’t know where they are, or how they got there. They don’t know they’ve been chosen… for a very specific purpose … The Hunt. In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, a group of elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt ordinary Americans for sport. But the elites’ master plan is about to be derailed because one of The Hunted, Crystal (Betty Gilpin), knows The Hunters’ game better than they do. She turns the tables on the killers, picking them off, one by one, as she makes her way toward the mysterious woman (Hilary Swank) at the center of it all.

Ike Barinholtz, Justin Hartley, and Emma Roberts also star.

Here’s what the director of The Hunt had to say about the film’s cancellation last year.
