Hilary Swank Reveals Why She Took a Three Year Break from Spotlight

Hilary Swank made an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday (March 20) in New York City.

While on the show, the actress was asked about her dad, who underwent a lung transplant.

“He’s great, thank you for asking!” Hilary told Stephen Colbert. “For those of you who don’t know, my dad got a lung transplant. It’s the hardest surgery a person can undergo and I thank all the people who make themselves a donor, it saves lives.”

She continued, “They had given him a short time to live if he didn’t get one and thankfully he got one and he’s alive and thriving and well. I took three years off to be with him and help him through that life journey.”

“I did something in particular with Mr. [David Letterman] on his birthday,” she said, referring to her 1995 appearance when she jumped on David’s desk, performed a striptease and flashed him.

“I sometimes think, ‘That doesn’t feel like me.’ It’s like a distant memory that doesn’t seem like me—but it is me. And that’s kind of cool. I’m still down with that. I’m a mother of two. I don’t know. I’m such a different person now that it doesn’t feel like me, but I’m still into it…you only have one life!”

Mindy Kaling Tells Stephen Colbert That His Baby Gift 'Sucks' Compared To Oprah's Gift - Watch Here!

Mindy Kaling hit Stephen Colbert‘s couch on The Late Show on Thursday night (March 8) and thanked the late-night host for a present he and his wife sent for her new 2-month-old — a set of baby clothes.

“With a baby girl, you get sent a lot of colorful things and pink things,” the 38-year-old actress explained, “and I thought this was so sweet and very fancy.”

However, Mindy also revealed that all gifts paled in comparison to the present her Wrinkle in Time co-star Oprah sent, which was an ornate wooden bookcase in the shape of a castle, packed with children’s literature and each book inscribed with “Katherine’s Book Club.”

“It straight-up sucks compared to what Oprah gave me and I mean that with love,” Mindy admitted. “The bookcase was carved in the shape of an old-timey castle. It’s such a nice present! And yours was such a nice present.”
