Q&A with Hilary Swank
HS: I play a woman named Betty Anne Waters in another true story about a woman who's alive now and has become a friend of mine. It's a love story between siblings and really about how the hardship of your upbringing solidifies the bond between brother and sister. Kenny Waters was accused of murder and went to death row, and Betty Anne was a high school dropout who spent so much of her life studying to become a lawyer to help get her brother off death row.
RB: Wow. So is it just a coincidence that you're doing true stories in a row, or are you going straight biopics the rest of your career?
HS: [Laughing] I know, isn't that funny? No a total coincidence. But you know, truth is stranger than fiction.
