Hilary Swank Still Knows How To Kick Butt

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Hilary Swank toughened up to play a boxer in Million Dollar Baby and now she’s the one whipping people into shape – as a teacher in her newest movie, Freedom Writers.

In the film, which opens Friday (Jan. 5), Swank plays a teacher who helps troubled teens, like the one played by actor Deance Wyatt.

Although she’s using words instead of fists to get people in gear, Wyatt claims Swank still knows how to kick butt.

He explains: “One day during rehearsal there was a punching bag and all of us kids were playing around. Hilary came in and we were joking around and like, ‘Show us what you got.’ Let’s just say she murdered it.”

Although Swank schooled Wyatt in boxing, he claims he was able to teach the two-time Oscar winner a thing or two as well.

As he puts it, “We taught her how to do the Robot and the Electric Slide during breaks.”
