She was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2005.

Swank later ventured into producing in the 2010s, working on the films Amelia, Conviction, You're Not You, and What They Had, all of which she also starred in. Her other notable films include the television film Iron Jawed Angels, and the feature films Freedom Writers, Logan Lucky, The Hunt and Fatale.

Early lifeEdit

Hilary Ann Swank was born on July 30, 1974, in Lincoln, Nebraska. Her mother, Judy Kay (née Clough),[1] was a secretary and dancer, and her father, Stephen Michael Swank, was a Chief Master Sergeant in the Oregon Air National Guard and later a traveling salesman.[citation needed] Many of Swank's family members are from Ringgold County, Iowa.[2] Her maternal grandmother, Frances Martha Clough (née Dominguez), was born in El Centro, California, and was of Spanish and Native American descent.[3][citation needed] Swank's paternal grandmother was born in England; her other ancestry includes Dutch, German, Ulster-Scots, Scottish, Swiss-German, and Welsh.[3] The surname "Swank," originally "Schwenk," is of German origin.[4]

After living in Spokane, Washington, Swank's family moved into a home near Lake Samish in Bellingham, Washington, when Swank was six.[5] She attended Happy Valley Elementary School, Fairhaven Middle School, then Sehome High School in Bellingham until she was 16.[3][6] She also competed in the Junior Olympics and the Washington state championships in swimming, and she ranked fifth in the state in all-around gymnastics.[7] Swank made her first appearance on stage when she was nine years old, starring in The Jungle Book.[6]

When she was 15, her parents separated, and her mother, supportive of her daughter's desire to act, moved with her to Los Angeles, where they lived out of their car until Swank's mother saved enough money to rent an apartment.[5] Swank has called her mother the inspiration for her acting career and her life.[8] In California, Swank enrolled in South Pasadena High School, later dropping out.[9] She described her time at South Pasadena High School, "I felt like such an outsider. I didn't feel like I fit in. I didn't belong in any way. I didn't even feel like the teachers wanted me there. I just felt like I wasn't seen or understood."[5] She explained that she became an actor because she felt like an outsider, "As a kid I felt that I belonged only when I read a book or saw a movie, and could get involved with a character. It was natural that I became an actor because I longed so much to be those other people, or at least to play them."[10]

CareerEdit

Swank made her film debut in the 1992 comedy horror film Buffy the Vampire Slayer, playing a supporting role, after which she acted in the direct-to-video drama Quiet Days in Hollywood, where she co-starred with Chad Lowe, who would become her husband for a time.[11]

 
Swank in 1998

Her first leading film role was in the fourth installment of the Karate Kid series, The Next Karate Kid (1994) as Julie Pierce. The role utilized her gymnastics background and paired her with Pat Morita. In 1994, she also starred in the drama Cries Unheard: The Donna Yaklich Story, as the abused step-daughter who was protected by Donna (Jaclyn Smith). In 1995, she appeared with British actor Bruce Payne in Kounterfeit. In 1996, she starred in a TV movie, family drama Terror in the Family, as a troubled teenager. In September 1997, Swank played single mother Carly Reynolds in Beverly Hills, 90210 and was initially promised it would be a two-year role, but saw her character written out after 16 episodes in January 1998.[3] Swank later stated that she was devastated at being cut from the show, thinking, "If I'm not good enough for 90210, I'm not good enough for anything."[12]

The firing from Beverly Hills, 90210 freed her to audition for the role of Brandon Teena in Boys Don't Cry. To prepare for the role, Swank lived as a man for a month and reduced her body fat to seven percent. She had earned only $75 per day for her work on the film, culminating in a total of $3,000.[13] Her earnings were so low that she had not even earned enough to qualify for health insurance.[14] Upon release, many critics lauded her performance, with Premiere listing it as one of the "100 Greatest Performances of All Time".[15] James Berardinelli wrote at the time that Swank "gives the performance of her career".[16] Her work earned her several accolades, including the Golden Globe and Academy Award for Best Actress.[3] In an interview with Variety in 2020, Swank said that she felt a trans actor should've played the role, and had she been offered it today she would've refused it, stating "Twenty-one years later, not only are trans people having their lives and living, thankfully, although we still have a long way to go in their safety and their inclusivity, but we now have a bunch of trans actors who would obviously be a lot more right for the role and have the opportunity to actually audition for the role.”[17][18]

Swank again won the Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Actress for playing a female boxer in Clint Eastwood's 2004 film Million Dollar Baby, a role for which she underwent extensive training in the ring and weight room, aided by professional trainer Grant L. Roberts, gaining 19 pounds of muscle.[14] With her second Oscar, she had joined the ranks of Vivien Leigh, Sally Field and Luise Rainer as the only actresses to have been nominated for Academy Awards for Best Actress twice and won both times.[19] After winning her second Oscar, she said, "I don't know what I did in this life to deserve this. I'm just a girl from a trailer park who had a dream."[14]

In 2006, Swank signed a three-year contract with Guerlain to be the face of the women's fragrance Insolence.[20] She received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the motion picture category on January 8, 2007; it was the 2,325th star presented.[21][22] In 2007, Swank starred in Freedom Writers, about a real-life teacher, Erin Gruwell. Many reviews of her performance were positive, with one critic noting that she "brings credibility" to the role,[23] and another stating that her performance reaches a "singular lack of artifice, stripping herself back to the bare essentials".[24] Swank next starred in the horror film The Reaping (2007), as a debunker of religious phenomena. Swank convinced the producers to move the film's setting from New England to the Deep South, and the film was filmed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana when Hurricane Katrina struck.[25] The same year, she also appeared in the romantic drama P.S. I Love You with Gerard Butler.[25][26]

Swank portrayed the pioneering aviator Amelia Earhart in the 2009 biopic Amelia, which she also co-executive produced through 2S Films, a production company she established with producer Molly Smith.[27][28] In October 2011, Swank attracted controversy for attending an event in Chechnya's capital Grozny on the 35th birthday of Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov on October 5.[29] After wishing him "Happy birthday, Mr. President", she reportedly claimed knowledge about Kadyrov saying, "I read. I do my research."[30] Following criticism from human rights groups, that reported having informed her about the human rights abuses in Chechnya prior to the event and asked her to reconsider her participation,[31][32] Swank said she was unaware that Kadyrov had been accused of human rights violations and that she "deeply regrets" taking part in the lavish concert. She donated her personal appearance fees "to various charitable organizations".[33]

In 2012, Swank's audiobook recording of Caroline Knapp's Pack of Two: The Intricate Bond Between People and Dogs was released at Audible.com.[34] In 2013, she starred in the television film Mary and Martha alongside Brenda Blethyn.[35] In 2014, Swank played the lead role of Kate Parker, a woman whose life is shattered when she develops the degenerative disease ALS, in You're Not You. The film co-starred Emmy Rossum and Josh Duhamel. In 2015, she was listed as one of BBC's 100 Women.[36]

In 2017, she appeared in Steven Soderbergh's heist comedy Logan Lucky, as Special Agent Sarah Grayson, alongside Channing Tatum and Daniel Craig,[37] and portrayed lawyer Colette Hughes in Bille August's drama film 55 Steps. In 2018, Swank starred in and executive produced the Alzheimer's disease drama film What They Had, directed by Elizabeth Chomko.[38] Also in 2018, she portrayed Gail Getty in the first season of FX's anthology series Trust.[39] It was reported that Swank would star as Laura Murphy in Alejandro González Iñárritu's drama series The One Percent.[40]

In July 2019, Swank was cast in the thriller film The Hunt, opposite Betty Gilpin. Before its release, the film's plot, about deadly violence between political liberals and conservatives, caused controversy, after which its release was delayed by Universal from the original date of September 2019. Swank commented on the situation, stating: “No one’s seen the film. You can’t really have a conversation about it without understanding what it’s about."[41] The film was released in 2020, and received mixed reviews.[42] In September 2020, Swank portrayed Emma, an astronaut, in the Netflix science drama series Away, which was cancelled after one season.[43] For both The Hunt and Away, Swank earned a total of three nominations at the 2021 Critics' Choice Super Awards.[44]

Personal lifeEdit

While filming Quiet Days in Hollywood, Swank met actor Chad Lowe. They married on September 28, 1997.[45] They announced their intention to divorce on January 9, 2006,[46] which was finalized on November 1, 2007.[47] In 2007, Swank began dating her agent, John Campisi, but they ended their relationship in May 2012.[48]

In a January 2009 episode of The Office, "Prince Family Paper", the subplot of the episode is the office coworkers debating whether or not Hilary Swank is "hot". At the end of the debate, the sides are still tied until Michael, oblivious of their debate, passes by the pictures on the wall and casually calls her hot. Swank referred to such discussions emphasising the looks of women in Hollywood as doing a "disservice".[49][50]

On March 22, 2016, Swank announced her engagement to Ruben Torres, a financial advisor with UBS and former professional tennis player. The two had been dating since May 2015.[51] In June 2016, Swank's representative confirmed that she and Torres had ended their engagement.[52]

On August 18, 2018, she married entrepreneur Philip Schneider after two years of dating.[53]
