  Hilary Swank - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Swank was born in Lincoln, Nebraska and makes no secret of her humble beginnings, particularly as a child growing up near Lake Samish in Bellingham, Washington.
Swank's parents separated when she was 15, and her mother, supportive of her daughter's desire to act, moved the two of them to Los Angeles, California, where they lived out of their car until Swank's mother saved enough money to rent an apartment.
Swank's Oscar success means that she has joined the ranks of Vivien Leigh, Helen Hayes, Sally Field, and Luise Rainer as the only actresses to have been nominated twice and win both times.
