Swank Is Sorry

Posted on

“Boys Don’t Cry” best actress Hilary Swank has apologized to Teena Brandon’s mother, JoAnn Brandon, who was upset by Swank’s Oscar acceptance speech. (Swank referred to her real-life movie character as Brandon Teena, instead of Brandon’s given name, and referred to Teena as a man.) “It makes me sad,” Swank told Variety columnist Army Archerd. “But I never tried to define her as a lesbian.”
