Hilary Swank stars in "New Year's Eve," directed by Garry Marshall, as Claire Morgan.

Two-time Academy Award winning actress, Hilary Swank has graced some of this decade's most fascinating films. An actress as well as a producer, Swank is involved with several highly anticipated projects. Hilary most recently starred in "The Resident," alongside Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lee Pace, Tony Goldwyn's "Conviction," opposite Sam Rockwell and Melissa Leo, and the Fox Searchlight biopic "Amelia," with Ewan McGregor and Richard Gere. Swank also executive produced the latter film.

In 2008, Hilary and producer Molly Smith launched the production company 2S Films and inked a two-year first-look pact with Warner-based Alcon Entertainment. Projects in the works include "French Women Don't Get Fat" based on the 2004 bestseller by Mireille Guiliano, a romantic comedy about a young, single woman living in New York, who learns some tough life lessons about truly loving yourself, and "Sweet & Vicious" a light-hearted comedy about female friendship and the pitfalls of success. Other projects in development are "You're Not You" based on a novel by Michelle Wildgen, about a woman suffering from a terminal illness and an aimless young woman who enters her life as a caregiver and "Falling Out of Fashion" based on the debut novel by Karen Yampolsky, which centers on a woman who leaves a Georgia hippie commune for New York City with dreams of becoming a magazine editor.

In 2007, Hilary starred in two films which showcased her range in talent, both from director Richard LaGravense. First in the drama, which she also executive produced, "Freedom Writers," opposite Patrick Dempsey, based on the inspirational true story of school teacher Erin Gruwell, followed by her starring role in the romantic comedy "P.S. I Love You," opposite Gerard Butler and Kathy Bates.

Swank has won two Best Actress Academy Awards, an extremely rare accomplishment and testament to her talent. She won her first Oscar for the role of Brandon Teena in the 1999 drama "Boys Don't Cry." She also won a Golden Globe, Critics' Choice, New York Film Critics, Los Angeles Film Critics, Chicago Film Critics, and National Society of Film Critics Award for her portrayal of Brandon. Additionally, the National Board of Review recognized Swank's work with the Breakthrough Performance of the Year Award, and she earned BAFTA and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award nominations.

In 2005, Swank won her second Academy Award for her starring role as boxer Maggie Fitzgerald in Clint Eastwood's Oscar-winning Best Picture, "Million Dollar Baby," opposite Eastwood and Morgan Freeman. In addition to her Oscar, Hilary won her second Golden Globe as well as a SAG Award, National Society of Film Critics Award and Critics' Choice Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Maggie. That same year, Hilary earned Golden Globe and SAG nominations for her portrayal of suffragette Alice Paul in the HBO movie "ron Jawed Angels."
