Tilda Swinton Admits To Trying To Kill Her Younger Brother

Bizarre. Unsettling. Frightening. Traumatic. There are so many words that come to mind when hearing this story. We can't imagine what she's feeling having lived it.

Tilda Swinton is best known as an acclaimed and award-winning actress, but there are those who knew her before the fame and before the awards. Tilda was the only girl born into her family, with three brothers flanking her on either side. In a new interview, she reveals that well into her adult life, she recalled a terrible secret she had repressed from childhood about the night she had resigned to kill her younger brother. She explains:

"Years ago, when James Bulger was murdered, every newspaper front page was talking about evil. At that point, having suppressed it for years, I remembered when I was four or five, I tried to kill my own brother. He was newly born and I was disappointed, because he was the third boy. That was enough as far as I was concerned. I went into his room to kill him, saw some ribbons from a bonnet going into his mouth, and began to pull them out. And I was discovered saving his life. So I had this strange reputation - my brother's savior - and no one knew I wanted to kill him. It took the Bulger case for me to remember that I'd seriously wanted to."

Wow. We barely know what to say. We suppose that being so young, Tilda didn't have a firm grasp on what it really meant to kill another person. And obviously, the angry feelings she had for him she grew out, considering that she hasn't tried to murder him since!

But still, this is very, very creepy? Just like, too unnerving for words. We wonder what her brother thinks of all this. We can't even imagine!

    shes weird looking beautiful in her own way always in twisted movies but plays the part amazingly so haveing a twisted nature from early on is kind of unsurprising.

    i always enjoy seeing her in movies . she plays the cold bitch so well..



  2. 2

    Her face is creepy there's something very grim lurking within her soul



  3. 3

    It doesn't sound like she actually tried to, but more like she just wanted to.



  4. 4

    She may have wanted to keep that tidbit to herself…I mean, what does she gain at this point….other than attention…..Glad she did not kill her brother, that is for sure…poor little dude!!! She is an interesting actress….I give her that….she is a trip!!!!



  5. 5

    well she has crazy eyes, but what would her brother be thinking now?!?! I would have never make it public, poor brother



  6. 6

    She is absolutely the UGLIEST famous person ever.

    It's normal for children to feel intense jealousy when a younger sibling is introduced to the family, thus trying to hurt them physically or just being plain mean is quite common, but I cannot remember that genuinly trying to *kill* them is part of what is categorized as normal behaviour. Thoughts may certainly occur, but seriously contemplating murder is a whole other thing. That said, Tilda strikes me as a person with a mentality different than most, whether that is something positive or negative, is something I'm not certain of yet.

    this is another one of those tidbits the public does not need to know about. If she was older than 10 THEN I'd be worried, but at 4 and 5 we really don't know any better.



  9. 9

    4-5 is beyond the age of reason. Lots of little kids harbour animosity and ill will towards their siblings. It is nothing to feel guilty about now.

    It's actually somewhat common for young children to try to kill or injury the younger ones. I used to work in day care with and remember being shocked the first time I saw a 2 year old try to seriously hurt a 9 month old on purpose. My younger cousin had a huge 20 pound rock dropped on her by a jealous 5 year old neighbor when we were children. Creepy but true if you have been around children a lot.

    He's too young to be that much in love. Justin save it for the girl you meet in your mid 20"s!

    Personally, if given the spotlight and opportunity to be 'famouz', this wouldn't be something I'd publicly share, whether it be a common incident (as booboo1492 stated) or not.. It's just not something that needs to be shared.



  13. 13

    Um…ok?? That would something I would keep forever in my head. She's always been a freak though.



  14. 14

    Not really. It's just innocent childhood of jealously, every child who is jealous of their siblings tend to think about it or act upon it but never fully think about the consequences. It's just a innocent age.



  15. 15

    Ummm get this bitch some help…that's just not normal at all. She's always creeped me out can't stand her face



  16. 16

    If she really wanted to kill her brother, he wouldn't be alive right now. She would have waited until the next opportunity and then tried again until she got it right.



  17. 17

    That's actually not very uncommon. Gees when i saw this picture i was trying to figure out who this ugly little boy was until i started reading that he was a she lmao..

    It's pretty common for kids to be jealous of a younger new-born sibling. When they're that age, they don't really think about the consequences because they don't really "get it", and are too hurt/jealous to know any better. I know my older sister hurt me physically quite a few times when i was a baby because she was jealous that my mom was giving me most of the attention.

    Natural born sociopath… they make very convincing actors…



  20. 20

    The bizarre looking photo and the story kinda creepy me out. The story is certainly disturbing.

    Hair needs to be a bit darker and a little longer with some bangs. A fake tan wouldn't hurt either.

    There is a fine line between being an artist and belonging in a mental hospital. She need a straight jacket!
