Update: Swank Loses Food Fight

March 30, 2005

You can’t win ’em all. Actress Hilary Swank lost her legal battle with the government of New Zealand, forcing the fruit smuggler to cough up an exorbitant $142 in fines. Swank was stopped at Auckland International Airport in January after an apple and orange were discovered in her luggage. She refused to pay the paltry sum at that time and later sent her lawyers and a letter of protest to an Auckland court. Apparently, that wasn’t enough. The Million Dollar Baby star was again slammed with the $142 penalty. What is that sound? Why, it’s the world’s smallest violin.
