Hilary Swank is a two-time Oscar winner, first as a she living as a he, in 'Boys Don't Cry,' then as a girl engaged in the macho sport of boxing, in 'Million Dollar Baby.' So should it come as any surprise that awards buzz is starting up for her performance in her latest, 'Amelia,' in which she plays the iconic aviatrix pursuing her dreams in the traditionally male field of flying?

We caught up with Swank, who told us why she thinks truth is stranger than fiction, that more people are approaching her about this movie than any she's ever done (even though critics aren't loving the film) ... and which woman is her own real-life inspiration.
