INTERVIEW: Hilary Swank signs off with ‘P.S. I Love You’

MoviesOnline recently sat down with two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank ("Million Dollar Baby,” "Boys Don’t Cry”) at the Los Angeles press day to talk about her new movie, "P.S. I Love You,” directed by Richard LaGravenese. The film also stars Gerard Butler ("300”), Lisa Kudrow (TV’s "Friends”), Harry Connick, Jr. ("Bug,” TV’s "Will & Grace”), Gina Gershon (TV’s "Ugly Betty”), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (TV’s "Grey’s Anatomy”) and Academy Award winner Kathy Bates ("Misery”).

Swank plays the central role of Holly Kennedy, a young woman who seems to have it all until life deals her an unexpected hand. "Holly found love at a young age,” Swank remarks. "Gerry (Gerard Butler) was her everything – her soul mate, her best friend, her lover, her husband. So when she loses him, all of a sudden she’s alone in more ways than one because I don’t think she quite knows how to handle life on her own. But he knew what she would be facing, so he wrote her letters to help her find herself again.

Swank recently collaborated with director Richard LaGravenese when she starred in the true-life drama "Freedom Writers,” playing inspirational schoolteacher Erin Gruwell. She says the opportunity to reunite with LaGravenese would have been reason enough to do the film. "We had such a great experience on ‘Freedom Writers.’ Richard has always been one of my favorite screenwriters and I have such enormous respect for him as a director. I love working with him, so I would have done anything he asked me to do. But this movie was easy to say ‘yes’ to because I really loved it.”
