Hilary Swank has played a couple tough roles of late. She followed her performance as an ALS patient in “You’re Not You” with her role as a tough frontierswoman in Tommy Lee Jones’ “The Homesman.” We talked about the similarity of the challenges women faced both in the Wild West and today.
Eddie Redmayne literally transformed himself into the world famous physicist, Stephen Hawking, in “The Theory of Everything,” and he pulled some inspiration from an unlikely source to do so.
