Quotes: "I think that any time you start concerning yourself with what people think you're going to fail, because you're never going to please everybody. If you try to make everybody happy you might as well quit. I think that what I have to do -- and what I remind myself of constantly -- is love what I'm doing because I care so much about it and I put so much into it that I need to be able to respond to it." - Hilary Swank in an interview for HILARY Magazine
"My most annoying question is 'Hilary, are you ever going to play a pretty girl?'" - Hilary Swank quoted in Newsweek
"I think when you're playing a real character you have an extra responsibility to do it really right, so because of that, I do extensive research. I really try and figure out the person inside and out. I read the lines, but I read in-between the lines and try and find the qualities in that person that makes them human and I hopefully try and bring that out in what I do." - Hilary Swank on playing Annie Sullivan
"I cut coupons, love specials and believe in buying toilet paper and toothpaste in bulk. It's just who I am." - Hilary Swank quoted in Woman's World
