Hilary Swank; a jungle boy

 Q:   Ask a Question about Hilary Swank; a jungle boy       
I am "an actor, not a celebrity. I am a homebody". These are the words of a famous American actress Hilary Swank who started acting professionally from the age of 16 but her first appearance was as Mowgli in The Jungle Book.

Hilary Ann Swank was born on July 30, 1974 in Lincoln, Nebraska, U.S. Hilary Swank is the third youngest woman in history to win two Academy Awards for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role".

Swank is a staunch lover of sports and also is a devotional, spiritual person. Yet she is not associated with any religion organization and never attends religious functions. Great devotion!!!

She participated in the Junior Olympics and Washington state championships in swimming and also stood fifth in the state in all-around gymnastics. A lover of animals, she has parrot, Tallinn; a cat and two dogs: Karoo, a Corgi/Jack Russell mix, and Lucky, a German Shepherd/Labrador Retriever mix. She also loves sky diving, river rafting and skiing.

Swank developed potential health problems, including elevated mercury levels in her body. She went through a couple of physical changes including weight gain and weight loss for her Oscar nominated movies which was the root cause of her physical problems.

In an interview she stated that “she would do whatever she need to make her role true and believable and to make it work" and that “battle scars on her body are a reminder that you're alive and human and that you bleed."

Swank believed that she has been very clear in her aim and that her present life is a result of her figuring herself and knowing her potentials and capabilities.

In 1992, Swank met actor Chad Lowe on the sets of Quiet Days in Hollywood, a direct-to-video film. After dating for nearly five years, both tied knot on September 28, 1997.

In 2000, on winning her first Oscar award, Swank did not mention Lowes’ name during her acceptance speech for which she spent nearly every public appearance afterward making up for it. Learning a lesson from this she thanked Lowe first on receiving her second Oscar award in 2005.

After 8 years of marriage the couple separated but Swank was confident they would reconcile. I think in Hollywood divorces are also planned when they exchange their wedding vows...
