Hilary Swank In Vivienne Westwood

I think she looks so beautiful and glamorous in this dress. Saw her interviewed on CBS Sunday Morning this past Sunday, what a lovely down to earth person.

Hilary Swank attended the premiere of her latest film, “Ordinary Angels,” on Monday in New York.

 

The actress sported one of this season’s hottest hues: red, opting for an off-the-shoulder gown by Vivienne Westwood. With a plunging neckline and delicate draping, Swank’s frock featured a corseted bodice. Accessorizing with diamond jewels by Kwiat and Fred Leighton, she completed her look with a pair of Manolo Blahnik pumps.Stylist Thomas Carter Phillips dressed Swank for the occasion. 

 

Ordinary Angels,” costarring Alan Ritchson, is inspired by a true story. “I play this larger than life woman, she needs a second chance at life,” Swank told Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show,” adding, “she finds that through helping another human being in need. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry. It’s a feel-good movie and I think we really need that in this time.”

She looks beautiful.  That is the perfect dress for her.

 

Alan is eye candy too; he compliments the dress.

She also took three years off from acting to be the caregiver for her late father.

Hilary Swank's opening up about her humble beginnings., A Wall Street Journal story, published Tuesday, traced the two-time Oscar-winning actor's rise to fame. Eager to start her acting career, Swank said that she stopped going to high school at the end of her sophomore year and after "my mother had recently separated from my father," the mother-daughter duo drove to Los Angeles from Bellingham, Washington, to break into Hollywood.

 

In L.A., my mother and I first lived in her Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme on quiet residential streets. When we weren't sleeping in the car, we stayed at the house of a new friend my age whose family had just moved out and were trying to sell their home. We slept on an air mattress," Swank added.

 

Swank is currently promoting her new film "Ordinary Angels," inspired by a true story that follows a Louisville hairdresser who helps the Kentucky community band together to assist a widowed father with a critically ill daughter. Swank stars opposite Alan Ritchson in the film.

 

Swank continued: "After about a month (of living in LA), Mom found secretarial work and we rented a bedroom from a single mother in Burbank. Starting out, I booked just OK television parts, but I didn’t care. I was excited to be living my dream."

 

Swank had her first star turn in ABC's short-lived '90s sitcom "Camp Wilder" and scored two Academy Award nominations in 1999's "Boys Don't Cry" and the 2004 Clint Eastwood film, "Million Dollar Baby." She took home the Oscar for both, for best actress.

 

In her personal life, she's also winning. Now, Swank and her husband, entrepreneur Philip Schneider, and the family's twins Aya and Ohm live back and forth between Colorado and Bellingham, Washington, where she grew up.

 

"Even though I'm happy we left L.A., every so often, when I'm there for meetings, I’ll drive along a street in Pasadena where my mom and I parked and slept. Despite the challenges, I feel nostalgia for those days, when we had nothing," Swank added.

@Greeneyedlady21 It's funny she never mentioned her recurring role in a season of BH 90210.

Has this dress come up before in another color on another celebrity?  It looks familiar.  I love the dress but I don't care for the color.

Gorgeous! I’ve always liked her. Been a fan since Boys Don’t Cry. She was fabulous in that.
