Hilary Swank Goes For Gold At London Film Festival

Double Oscar Winner Hilary Swank actually looked like an Oscar statue when her movie Conviction had it’s premiere during the London Film Festival.

Hilary, who has the Best Actress gold statuette for her roles in Boy’s Don’t Cry and Million-Dollar Baby, could even be up for a third Oscar for her role in this movie.

Conviction is a gripping drama and Hilary plays an unemployed single mother who spent years earning a law degree so she could defend her brother who was wrongly convicted of murder. It’s like a more serious Erin Brokovich and  Swank’s ragged appearance as a single mother in the film is in stark contrast to how she walked the red carpet at The Vue West End in London’s Leicester Square for the premiere.

When reporters on the red carpet quizzed her about whether she wanted a third Oscar, she was modest.

“The idea of even having an Academy Award is something I’m really grateful for and quite in awe of and humbled by,” the down-to-earth actress said. “I just tell stories that challenge me as an actor and as a human being, and Conviction was certainly that challenge.”

Off screen, Hilary has a happy personal life and has been dating former agent John Campisi for almost four years. So can we expect marriage bells any time soon?

The couple are being coy but with Hilary looking so hot then John needs to get a ring on it and preferably one in the same colour as her dress…or in platinum.

For a dress with the ultimate wow-factor try a Love Label pleated goddess maxi dress

Or for a similar gold dress of a shorter length you can’t help but be amazed by the striking Rare metallic one shoulder dress

And for a gold dress with the ultimate shine, the Vicky Martin twinkle sequin backless dress has thousands of sequins plus a very sexy open back – perfect for those Christmas parties!

Get ready to see  Hilary tackling more juicy roles very soon. She’s already filming The Resident, which follows a young doctor who is being stalked by her landlord.

The 36-year old star definitely aims to challenge herself!
