American actress Hilary Swank, who loves doing dare-devil stunts, surprised her boyfriend by giving him a lift during one of her flying lessons.

The 35-year-old actress, who recently portrayed celebrated aviator Amelia Earhart in “Amelia”, took a detour during her training for her pilot’s license, cancelled partner and agent John Campisi’s flight and took her plane to pick him up instead, reports contactmusic.com.

“I absolutely love flying. I picked up my boyfriend from a meeting in Las Vegas. I said to my instructor, ‘Can we pick my boyfriend up?’ and he said, ‘Sure.’ So we flew to Vegas and showed up at the airport. John said, ‘You cancelled my flight and I’m getting in that plane?’ And I’m like, ‘You’d better – we flew all this way to get you!’,” she said.

Swank says she wasn’t frightened by her lessons and loves trying out new and “exhilarating” dare-devil stunts.

“Not many things make me nervous. Flying, skydiving and bungee jumping are exhilarating, a reminder that you’re alive,” she said.


Hollywood actress Hillary Swank has admitted she was a lonely child and her friends were forbidden from playing with her at school.

“I grew up feeling like an outsider because we had no money, so I understood ‘classism’ at a young age. A lot of parents didn’t want their kids playing with me, even though the kids didn’t care,” said Swank.

The star was forced to spend her spare time reading and watching movies, where the characters became the closest thing she had to friends, reports femalefirst.co.uk
