Swank spoke to Health magazine recently where she talked about her break from Hollywood, the reason behind her decision, and more. According to the 46-year-old actress, she put her career on hold to take care of her dad who had a lung transplant. Her plan was to take a year off but then it turned to two, then three years. She was her dad’s health advocate. He’s now healthy and doing well.
Obviously, the star has learned a lot from her experience. She said that you have to make sure to take time for yourself and vocalize your needs to those around you. For Swank, wellness plays an important role in her daily routine. This routine may vary everyday but the bottom line is you honor what you need for yourself and do it.
She also mentioned that exercise is a great way to de-stress. She described sports as her babysitter because that what she could do after school while her parents worked. She added that sports were vital in making up her identity and in ensuring that her body was being used for a certain goal. She works out because it makes her feel good.
Now that she’s back, she’s taking projects that interest and mean something to her. For her new series, Away, she admitted that playing an astronaut was a dream come true. She admitted she wanted to be one before being an actress. She said she has high respect for astronauts and others who explore something bigger than all of us.- Advertisement -
