Hilary Swank Took A Three-Year Break From Acting – And The Reason For Her Decision Is Heartwarming

Clint Eastwood once said of Million Dollar Baby character Maggie Fitzgerald, “There’s something about her struggle to be something, to get to the top, which is very much like Hilary Swank herself.” And Eastwood’s comparison couldn’t have been more on point, since Swank has been clawing her way to the summit of her profession ever since she was a child.

Indeed, Swank’s fiery determination has fueled much of her professional work, and it’s played a vital role in her personal life, too. But why exactly did the star go on a three-year hiatus from acting? Well, it turns out that her big heart may have had something to do with it…

If you thought that Hilary Swank had everything handed to her on a plate from an early age, think again. Her sheer drive and determination were the key factors to her success – and these qualities certainly didn’t disappear after she had hit the big time. In fact, the actress has practically earned everything she’s achieved off her own back.
