Hilary Swank Plans to Start a Family

Hilary SwankHilary Swank wants to have a baby — but only when the time is right.

The Million Dollar Baby star — who is currently dating John Campisi, her agent — says she has been thinking long and hard about starting a family, but she doesn’t see herself getting married.

“For me, my career is like, for lack of a better word, a baby,” she said. “I always knew that I wanted to act, since I was seven years old. But also from that age, I’ve been thinking about the day that I would have kids.

“When the time is right, I’ll know. I am aware that I am 35. But I am also aware that the timing has to be right.”

Swank also revealed that she sleeps in the nude.

“I don’t sleep in anything,” she said. “Well, my boyfriend’s son is 6 years old, and you wonder at what age you should stop walking around nude.

“Every morning he comes into the bedroom, and you’re just nude. But he doesn’t look twice; he doesn’t think about it yet.

“I just toss and turn too much when I sleep, and if I’m in clothes, I get all twisted up.”

    I don’t think it is appropriate at all for a woman who is not the child’s mother to be cavorting around nude in front of the child. Six year olds are very aware of “naked” especially when their daddy is sleeping with a naked woman. Have some dignity and respect for the child, Hillary.

    Six year olds definitely understand there is a naked woman in Daddy’s bed. Who is she kidding? Nudity should stop in front of kids by the age of three. Poor Hillary…twisted up in clothing…think about what it is doing to that little boy!

    This is just so wrong on so many levels!

  • Jenni

    If Hillary nor her boyfriend think that thre is a problem with what this little boy is literally being “exposed” to, then maybe it’s not such a bad idea for her to keep putting off having kids herself. How would she have liked it if ol Chad and she had a child together and he and his girlfriends were running naked in front of him or her?

    Hi Hil,
    This is from “BOXING DON”. Just a note to, ‘keep up the good work’ and keep me in mind when you start auditioning for future roles. Don’t let your daughter / son grow up to be boxers, and make SURE she / he stays as grounded and REAL as you are.

    You people are such prudes… Good lord… Who cares… Trust me… That kid is going to see plenty of naked women during the course of his life, and seeing a naked woman at six isn’t going to “screw” him up… What a crazy notion…
