Hilary Swank - Hilary Swank: Dream started in a car

Hilary Swank thought she would ''live her dream'' when she slept in a car.

The 'Million Dollar Baby' star and her mother Judy Kay moved from Washington to Hollywood to help launch Hilary's acting career when she was 15, and though the pair struggled the make ends meet, the Oscar-winning beauty says her parent's faith in her was all she needed to know she would be a success.

Hilary - who was six years old when her parents split up - said: ''When I was 15, we took off together to Hollywood. I wanted to be an actress and she had faith in me to earn a living from it. That kind of faith is all I needed.

''We slept in the car. I didn't see it as anything bad or sad. I was about to live my dream. I'm sure my mom was freaked out.''

Despite her early excitement, Hilary admits she now realises their ''adventure'' was ''crazy'' and she and her mother are still amazed by their own actions.

She added to The Sun newspaper: ''It was crazy. When we talk about it now, we say, 'Can you believe we did that?' Looking back, it was an adventure. It was also scary.''
