Radio host to Hilary Swank: You're not a pretty girl

A recent radio interview almost turned ugly when the host informed Oscar winner Hilary Swank that she isn't pretty.

Swank was chatting with Kim Masters of L.A.'s KCRW on Monday when the discussion turned to the lack of roles for older actresses in Hollywood.

ā€œI'm still young enough that I haven't been feeling the brunt of that," Swank said. "Certainly, you hear about it ā€¦ and you do see it, although you also see a lot more roles I think opening up for older women. I mean, Meryl Streep seems to be dominating."

"Oh, but she'sā€¦ the exception," replied Masters. "She's not a pretty girl, and you're not either."

Rather than being reduced to tears, the "Boys Don't Cry" star joked, "Hey, what are you saying?!" then added, "Actually, I completely know what you're saying. I play characters. I don't play a movie star-looking type of person, which I prefer. I mean, who walks around looking like that anyway?"

    I've never thought of her as ugly. Watched the movie Amelia a few days ago, Hilary was great in the leading role btw.

    Hilary is a beautiful woman, not a girl, and someone needs to fire that radio host. People like
    her have to be mean to be noticed, and the comment was all about her, not Hilary. I loved
    hilary in "million dollar bably" and would love to meet her in person. She is a talent actress,
    and a beautiful woman.

    if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all, this person obviously wasn't raised very well, shame on them, blunt comments are bullying in many ways, which supposed adults are guilty of all the time..... too bad. Hillary is a beautiful person inside and out !

    I like how they left out part of the transcript to sensationalize it. Nice "journalism" by a bunch of hacks. If you read the full transcript you will see that she apologized for the way it came out and meant to say that she doesn't play pretty characters in movies.

    This is very much being taken out of context. If you listen to the live cast, she says Hillary plays the part of "not pretty girls" – that she plays "real characters" rather than a glamorous Hollywood-esque roll. Kim even backtracks to say "that came out wrong" and Hillary responds saying "No, I know what you mean" and even agrees with Kim.

    Finally!! Someone willing to tell the truth! I have been waiting for years for someone to have the guts to say that this girl is not pretty. She is not attractive in any way, shape, or form. I am sick of everyone having to refer to these stars and describe these stars as 'beautiful' when they are not. The sad truth is, a woman knows when she is not beautiful, so to constantly refer to her as beautiful is patronizing. Especially when she is described as an 'unconventional' beauty or 'today's version of beauty" Today's version of beauty has a lot to be desired. Not every woman is beautiful, and just because you are some sort of celebrity, it does not mean you should constantly be described as beautiful. How many years have we had to hear "the beautiful Susan Lucci"? Beautiful? With that hook nose and clown mouth? Come on! Look at all the women in hollywood that are considered beautiful. In actuality, less than a handful are.

    I dont think she is drop dead gorgeous but she isnt ugly. She also isnt at the level of beauty as Angliana Jolie or Kate Beckensale. However her comments after the host said that to her where classy and superbly said. It does show she is in it for the craft and not for the fame and money. Which I can appreciate when an artist does that. I will certainly not dismiss her movies now that I know she truly try.

    So what brought about the need for such a remark from the radio host in the first place?

    Hillary's comment had no mention or comment regarding age or looks. The host's reaction merely demonstrates where so many representatives of the media (and genral public) have their minds - surface appearances only. It is a small wonder to hear such stories, they show how much of society is dominated by the shallow and meaningless.

    CNN is reporting the juice, they aren't reporting the fact that Kim Masters IMMEDIATELY apologized, and said she didn't mean to imply that she wasn't "pretty", she was referring to the fact that it seems alot of the good movie roles are going to the "pretty" girls (aka hot chicks whose acting abilities are suspect).

    Good Actress. Just different enough from the Hollywood'esque "Barbies" to make her incredibly interesting. I'll always watch her movies...because she plays to the part. Too many actors (ahem, Cruise, Pitt, Jolie) are basically a thin skin away from the same person in each role.

    Gotta love her.

    1st thought that popped in my head ... 'finally, someone said it' ... Hilary is not pretty, that's a fact ... the radio host was an idiot for saying something that was not 'polite' and Hilary's response was dead on ...... Meryl is HOTT and she's pretty .....

    Wow, talk about missing the point. The Radio Host wasn't saying she isn't attractive, if you read the context of the situation, you'll see that she's telling her that she doesn't land the rolls that call for the typical "bombshell" type actress...she trades on her acting ability, not on her physical appearance.

    Hilary is smart enough to know how others look at her – she would not have even tried to become an actress if it bothered her : let alone an oscar winning actress. I think the radio host is pretty dense.

    Why does every actress have to be pretty. Let's face it most people are average looking anyway so let the movies reflect that. Why is it okay for men to look like "what the cat dragged in" but women must be drop dead gorgeous? Look at William H. Macy, Lyle Lovett, Tom Hanks and Randy Quaid just to name a few....

    I think this actually gives them more roles. Pretty girls can only play pretty girls. When is the last time you see Angelina Jolie play any other characters? When Angelina Jolie gets into her 40s, she will not be able to play the bad-a$$ chick nor can she play a pretty damsel in distress or any role like that either, while Hilary can play roles that are not restricted by looks but character.

      It's not that she heard what she wanted to hear–she just did a super job at rescuing the interview from becoming something ugly, which she is not. She had to think fast and respond quickly. I can't believe the interviewer would say such a thing. No tact, no class. Maybe Kim Masters is in the habit of being nasty in the comments sections like some of you and forgot for the moment that she's not anonymous when she's on the air. Rude is rude, whether or not you're anonymous. Hilary is not an Anjelina Jolie type, but she is very pretty, makes fabulous choices for red carpet time, and she's a wonderful actress. The haters out there wouldn't say one negative word to her face, but they certainly know how to spill their poison here.

    • Really?

      Ok am I the only one that thinks Jolie isn't that great to look at? Everyone has types... I can't get past Jolie's lips, to me it looks bad. Hillary on the other hand is actually more my type, seems like someone you'd actually meet.

      IMO there are way 'uglier' people in hollywood than Hillary. One has spent 4 Mil on plastic surgery look her up if you dare but she has been referred to as a villian from thundercats her name is Jocelyn Widenstein. Now that is like going from humans to monsters but I know people like lil kim, so maybe look at what she's like now. I question your sanity if you can call hillary ugly, and still use the same term for lil kim or Jocelyn Widenstein.

      Kim Masters wasn't being rude although it seems many people think it came off that way. Obviously in Hollywood, if they can't get the pretty star for the role, the want her "type". Many a producer will say, get me a Halle Berry type or Megan
      Fox type. No one is saying Hillary of Meryl are ugly, but they get roles not because they're pretty but because they have depths of talents very few people will ever know or possess. No casting director or producer wants someone who looks like Meryl Streep, they want someone who can act like Meryl Streep.
