Few actresses win one Oscar—let alone two. Hilary Swank did it in just five years, for Boys Don’t Cry and Million Dollar Baby, all before she turned 30. Since her first break in a 1990s Karate Kid sequel, Swank has come a long way in a short time to reach such a lofty plateau in the biz. It’s no surprise she likes to take on tough leads that others might not even attempt. This year alone she played a young wife afflicted with ALS in You’re Not You (a film she also produced) and a pioneering woman on a treacherous journey in the Tommy Lee Jones-directed The Homesman, the latest in a remarkable career to create yet more Oscar buzz. Like so many of her roles, Mary Bee Cuddy in Homesman was no easy task.

Hilary Swank is going to the dogs.
The two-time Oscar winner actually went there some time ago as a longtime animal advocate, and she brings that personal passion to television on Thanksgiving night as a co-host (with Jane Lynch) and executive producer of the new FOX special “Fox’s Cause for Paws: An All-Star Dog Spectacular” Thursday (Nov. 27). The two-hour show’s aim is to inspire the adoption of rescue animals, but it also selects the “cutest puppy” and “best howler,” among other categories.
“My love for them is so great,” Swank tells Zap2it of her appreciation of canines including her own rescue dogs, “I’m always trying to think of creative ways to help them, to rescue them and to find them ‘forever’ homes, and [executive producer] Michael Levitt had this idea to do something bigger.
“We started brainstorming, this came about, we took it out and FOX jumped all over it. It’s the first of its kind, so for them to believe in it has just been enormous.”
