Hilary Swank Honored on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

      ** Click Here To View Photos **

Two Oscars for Best Actress usually means a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame and that honor came for Hilary Swank on January 11, 2007, timed with the release of her newest film, Freedom Writers. The presentation, featuring a weepy Swank herself and her family, happened in front of the world famous Grauman's Chinese Theater. Swank's star is the 2325th on the famous walk. 

Swank made her debut in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the movie) in 1992 and who knew how high she would climb from there? She's already won two Oscars for her work in Boys Don't Cry and Million Dollar Baby. She produced and stars in the real-life drama Freedom Writers, which opened at number four. In the film, she plays Erin Gruwell, the real-life English teacher who tried to inspire inner city slackers at Wilson High School in Long Beach. Hilary Swank was born in Lincoln, Nebraska and later moved to Southern California as a teenager with her mother to pursue acting. Life was so rough on her climb up the ladder, she even lived out of her car at one point. And now she's on the Walk of Fame. In other news around the actress, she appeared in an   issue of InStyle magazine, where she admits that, a year after splitting from actor-husband Chad Lowe, she has a new man - 'I'm in a relationship with a great guy who's not a public person, and I want to respect that. But yes, I am in a relationship.' The magazine claims that Hilary Swank's mystery man is actually her agent, John Campisi. The 37 year-old Hilary Swank can also be seen in The Black Dahlia, with Scarlett Johannson, P.S. I Love You, Amelia and The Resident. 

Photographs of Hillary Swank’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony can be seen on the hollywoodphotographs.com web site.  There are, also, hundreds of photos of other Walk of Fame ceremonies.  All the photos are available for purchase.
