Actress Hillary Swank covers November 2009 issue of Marie Claire, poses in khaki color H&M top, $49.
The magazine is on stands since October 13.Oscar-winning celebrity of decidedly flowery movies like Boys Don’t Cry and Million Dollar Baby says in the interview:
My relaxation has always been my animals—going to the dog park with them, going to the beach. I always try to carve out time in my day to be with them. On the last set I was on, I would just get a bike and ride around the studio with my dogs chasing me. It just gets me out of my head, you know what I mean?
About two Oscars which must get you any role you want
So not true. I really chase the things that I want. I don’t audition anymore, but I do go after things that I believe in. Someone will say, ‘Oh, I don’t see Hilary in that role because she’s not really that funny to me.’ So I’ll say that I want to sit down with them so that they meet the real person behind the characters. I usually get roles that are not the conventional beauty.”
About divorce and friendship:
For a long time, I was a loner because [my ex-husband Chad Lowe] was my best friend, and we were really happy just hanging out, he and I. I think it was maybe five years ago that I realized how important my friends were to me, and I realized they were a big part of my letting go. When I got divorced three years ago, I needed them more than ever. I have really good girlfriends. Mariska Hargitay is my best friend.”
Swank will play popular pilot Amelia Earhart in Amelia, out October 23.

About rumors that she has 80-page contract which means she’s owned by Simon Cowell:
That man is the nicest man on earth. He rings me, and I’m like, “You’re Simon Cowell – why are you ringing my phone?” I still get nervous when I talk to him.’
About her future:
‘I want kids before I’m 30. Cheryl advised me just to be wary who I’m dating. I just want someone who makes me happy.’
