Hilary Swank, 48, marvels at the pregnancy processes as she prepares to give birth to TWINS


Hilary Swank said she has mainly craved large quantities of fruit during her pregnancy on Monday’s episode of The Late Show with James Corden on CBS.

‘The first 16 weeks I had a lot of morning sickness, I didn’t do any throwing up, but all I wanted was fruit,’ said the 48-year-old Academy Award-winning actress who recently revealed she was pregnant with twins.

Hilary said when she finally told her Alaska Daily co-stars she was pregnant that they understood her over-the-top fruit consumption.

‘They were like ‘oh that’s why you eat 10 pomegranates a day, 50 pears,’ Hilary said.

Hilary, who previously revealed that the twins with husband businessman Philip Schneider, 50, were due in April coincidentally on her late father’s birthday, said she had just entered her 27th week and was essentially in her third trimester.

‘I’m feeling pretty full,’ Hilary said. ‘I love it. I feel like women are superheroes for what our bodies do. I have such. I’m in a whole new found respect.’

James asked Hilary since she moved to Colorado if there was anything she missed from living in Los Angeles.

‘I miss playing tennis,’ Hilary said. ‘I live at 9,600 feet and the ball flies. It just flies.’

Hilary said the altitude makes the ball go ‘to Mars.’

‘I love tennis,’ Hilary said. ‘I’m obsessed.’

James asked her how often she made it back to LA and what that commute was like.

‘I have my rescue dogs, my parrots, I have two parrots, five rescue dogs,’ Hilary said. ‘I got a pilot’s license during Covid and was flying, but it’s like a little prop plane ,and it won’t fit five dogs, two parrots and two babies. So now I’m actually looking into buying a retired band bus.’

‘Swanks on tour,’ James said.

‘You guys will have to figure out what the side mural would be,’ Hilary said.

‘Just paint it in cocaine,’ James said.

James then wanted to know from both Hilary and Gwyneth Paltrow, who was also on the show, what it was like to be famous in the 90’s. Hilary turned to Gwyneth and asked her if she won her Academy Award in 1999. Gwyneth said she thought so.

‘No because Boys Don’t Cry came out in 1999 so,’ Hilary said.

James played a clip from Hilary’s show Alaska Daily and congratulated her on her nomination for a Golden Globe.

Hilary shared they hid her pregnancy during filming by having a double  for her walking scenes. Hilary said before she announced she was pregnant she told the show she also needed a stunt double to do her running scenes.

‘I’m pregnant and I can’t tell anybody,’ Hilary said. ‘Guys, I think I’m a really bad runner. I need a stunt double to run.’

She said they didn’t believe her and asked to show them how she ran.

‘They said to me ‘show us,’ Hilary said. ‘I was like okay, how do I look like a really bad runner, I’m wasn’t a great runner to start with anyway, I was like I’ve really got to sell this so that I get my stunt double.’

Hilary said she ran and the four men looked at each other and said ‘yeah you need a stunt double.’
