There’s no doubting that Hilary Swank is a daring actress – she learned how to fly to play aviatrix Amelia Earhart for the biopic Amelia, after all. But when it comes to taking the plunge into a second marriage, she’s more cautious.
But Swank, who divorced Chad Lowe in 2006, is still a daredevil when it comes to other aspects of their relationship.
“I went to pick up my boyfriend from a meeting in Vegas,” Swank, 35, says of learning to fly a plane. “I canceled his flight and showed up, and he saw the plane and he said, ‘I have to get in there?’ I said, ‘We flew all this way, you better get in.’ And then he white-knuckled it the whole way.”
