Actress Hilary Swank has won two Oscars for her performances in “Boys Don’t Cry” and “Million Dollar Baby” and is most certainly entering this year’s awards season with her performance as Amelia Earhart. In an interview with Moviefone, she was asked about her acting rolemodels.
You’ve had a pretty amazing career, but is there anyone’s career that you look to as an inspiration?
It’s probably cliché at this point, but Meryl Streep is someone who not only continues to raise her own bar, and she’s time and time again extraordinary … she carries herself with such grace and she’s a girl’s girl, she’s very supportive of other women, and her work ethic is inspiring. She runs the gamut of doing dramatic and mainstream movies. You know, she fluctuates back and forth so easily and fluently. We’re entertainers, and that’s what a full career is supposed to be filled with, so I think she’s just extraordinary in every way.
