Hilary Swank Slept in Her Car

Monday, March 11, 2013

HILARY Swank used to sleep in her car.

The actress and her mother Judy Kay moved from Washington to Hollywood to help launch Hilary’s acting career when she was 15, and though the pair struggled the make ends meet, the Oscar-winning beauty says her parent’s faith in her was all she needed to know she would be a success.

“When I was 15, we took off together to Hollywood. I wanted to be an actress and she had faith in me to earn a living from it. That kind of faith is all I needed,” she said.

“We slept in the car. I didn’t see it as anything bad or sad. I was about to live my dream. I’m sure my mom was freaked out.

“It was crazy. When we talk about it now, we say, ‘Can you believe we did that?’ Looking back, it was an adventure. It was also scary.”
