Check out my interview with Oscar winner Hilary Swank on Men's Fitness.
Hilary stars in the new film Freedom Writers, which is an urban drama about a young teacher who motivates teens in the mid '90's to write their experiences in journals.
This was a great interview with Swank, who is an incredibly gifted actor -- she played in one of the best cinematic performances of all time in Boys Don't Cry. For those who don't know, Swank grew up in extreme poverty, raised in trailer parks so she seemed to have this truly humble spirit about her. Toward the end she started to cry talking about the children in the film... I couldn't help but wonder if was acting, but if she was -- Lawd knows she had me! Stories like Swank's inspires many people that no matter where you are from -- there is an option to succeed.
