Two-Time Oscar® Winner Attempts to Smuggle Fruit Into Small Island Nation
March 15, 2005
Hilary Swank sure knows how to pick her battles. The appearance-altering actress is refusing to pay a $150 fine for the unlawful importation of produce into New Zealand. Swank flew to Auckland in January and airport officials subsequently discovered an apple and orange tucked away in her luggage. Swank plans on contesting the fine with a team of lawyers who will appear in court next week. Nothing stirs the compassion of others like a wealthy star’s self-serving produce-related crusade.
