Hilary Swank gets her Star

January 9, 2007

Oscars are nice, but you haven’t made it in Hollywood until you get your Star on the Walk of Fame.  Based on that theory Hilary Swank has finally made it.

Hilary Swank and her mom came to Hollywood 16 years ago with only $75 in their pockets. On Monday, the two-time Oscar winner received the ultimate sign that the move paid off: a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“I remember my mom using a roll of quarters to call agents from a pay phone and telling agents they should sign me,” said the emotional 32-year-old during the dedication ceremony.

She is an amazing actress and this is a fitting tribute for one of the top actresses in Hollywood.  Hilary is a wonderful example of what hard work and a dream can get you in this world.
