Look-alike

Greta Garbo - Hilary Swank

So..what do you think? I think Hillary Swank is said to be today's Greta Garbo in terms of her strength as a woman.I think both of the incredible women have personalities as those tough women who are able to stand out in the crowd. That when the tide is high...this kind of woman will still be hanging on.

Greta Garbo (Greta Lovisa Gustafsson) was born on 18 September 1905 in Stockholm, Sweden. In 1950, she was designated as the most beautiful woman who ever lived by the Guinness Book of World Records. She was regarded as one of the greatest and most inscrutable movie stars ever produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and the Hollywood studio system. She received a Honorary Oscar in 1954. And in 1999 Garbo was ranked as the 50th greatest female star of all time by the American Film Institute.

Hilary Ann Swank was born in Lincoln, Nebraska on July 30, 1974. She has become known for her two Academy Award-winning performances: first in the movie Boys Don't Cry and second as a struggling waitress-turned-boxer in Million Dollar Baby. In early 2006, Swank signed a three-year contract as spokesperson for a women's fragrance, Guerlain. On January 2007, she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame which was the 2,325th star presented.
