Hilary Swank: Shame On Me

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitikJay LenoHilary Swank

At least she's taking some sort of responsibility.

Hilary Swank got into trouble a couple months ago when she attended a party for Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, a man who is accused of torturing and murdering.

She later apologized for the incident, but then made an appearance this week on The Tonight Show, her first since the controversy, to say she was in deep "regret" and "shame on me," for not doing her research beforehand.

Finally. We hope you learned your lesson.

    people make mistakes. who are you to pass judgment.? Do you know every detail about people you interact with? Perez Hilton isn't the patron saint of anything.



  2. 2

    Jay looks like he's aged 20yrs overnight in this pic. Suddenly, he looks like an old man.

    Wait! I thought this was going to be a story about Hillary apologizing for breaking up a marriage! Yea…the media let that little item slip through. John Campisi was married and left his wife for Hillary. Nice going. The trailer park girl is showing her true colors by making appearances in countries ruled by distributorships for over $1MM. Sad.

  8. 8

  9. 9

    she's a really good role model and is one of the very few talented people left in hollywood

  10. GIGN says – reply to this

    Shut up Perez and go get aids



  11. 11

    Fuglly Ho claims shame only when caught ! Other-wise, she took the money and ran to buy gold covered toilet paper to wipe her HollyWood arse !



  12. 12

    She is back pedalling…can't you see ? ! Her P.R. people have advised her to own up ! Demb C$nt shoulda done her research…can't go blaming assistants, etc. Sorry, but SHE IS GUILTY OF BAD JUDGEMENT, AND STUPIDITY. Trailer Trash is as Trailer Trash does !



  13. 13

    But did she give back the money for the appearance? Or donate it to charity?
    Funny she hasn't commented on that



  14. 14

    Nelly Furtado gave the money to charity when she realized that she had performed for a Dictator !



  15. 15

    She really does have to do something ’bout that OVER-BITE !



  16. 16

    WEll if you really wanna be a dick, Perez. Will the Olympics apologize for allowing a Nazi tradition to continue (Running of the torch), will Bayer ever pay back the slave laborers they used? Siemens? Plenty of others that have blood on their hand but Mr. hypocritical doesn't seem to care.



  17. 17

    Mario, this is disgusting. You have yourself so far up the asses of "celebrities" like the Kards, Gaga, etc. This woman is an accomplished actress who made a mistake. Like you haven't made a mistake before? When are you going to learn YOUR lesson??



  18. 18

    shes forgiven she has the balls to apologise which is a hell of a lot more than kk does for the sham she pulled ..
    love hiliary shes a good girl



  19. 19

    She already apologized several months ago, get over it.



  20. 20

    perez - it is infuriating how FUCKING DUMB you are. People make mistakes, who are you to judge. "We hope your learned your lesson".. like your some good-doing martyr or some shit. I love the fact that you are so alone.



  21. 21

    This cow dumped her entire team when the facts came out - she said it was their fault. Did little miss no talent (there's no talent to being ugly and emoting) rehire them, no, she decides it's best to be humble after canning everyone. go chew your cud.



  22. 22

    Wow. I can't even imagine how extremely humiliating that must've been. I would



  23. 23

    I can't even imagine how humiliating that must've been. I would've been overwhelmed by shame. I had not heard about him before this either, but then again I'm not a celebrity getting paid to see him. I actually feel sorry for her, being associated with supporting a killer is pretty awful if you made a mistake and actually have empathy, which she does. She does seem remorseful and shameful, she won't do it again, that's for sure.



  24. 24

    how many country star hicks and other celebrities have gone to george bush functions??? he tortured and killed, but I guess because he is white and american and "the country was at war" makes it okay…



  25. 25

    Yeah but di she give the money back he paid her to be at the party? Did Jean Claude give back the money? How about Beyonce with the dune coon party she performed at?



  26. 26

    Re: donkey boner
    Right, I guess it's ok to just go ahead and assasinaye people without any kind of due process. Our current mistake has even gone so far as to kill an American citizen. I guess thats ok though…..as long as you dont waterboard them first.



  27. 27

    All these celebs do this & they don't care ..all they care about is the money..& after the fact when it became public was she sorry just like Beyonce was paid 1million to perform for Gadaffi's son & she knew very well who he was & again only when it became public did she donate the money. These celebs are pathetic.



  28. 28

    Hilary Swank is probably the most blameless celebrity in Hollywood. She makes one mistake, which probably was an oversight by one of her assistants, and you and every asshole gossip column dealer jumps all over her. It's like you all were just waiting for her to fuck up somehow! Leave her alone!!



  29. 29

    Sorry need to correct myself it was 2million that both Beyonce & Jay-z was given for their 1 hour performance to the terrorist son. That should be posted as Shame On You & one of the biggest reasons why I would never support both of those artist let alone post any of their news on my blog.



  30. 30

    God I hate you Perez Hilton. Seriously no one likes you.



  31. 31

    Perez..who the FUCK are you to say "We hope you learned your lesson". You fucking disgust me..you absolute piece of human excrement



  32. 32

    I applaud her for taking responsibility! I don't get why she's gotten this much flack though, Beyoncé accepted ~ $1,000,000 to perform for Moammar Gadhafi, and only gave it to charity AFTER being criticized for accepting a violent dictator's money.



  33. 33

    Oh please, I wish she would of just told people to go F themselves. This was idiotic..You are aware, shes sitting there laughing at all of you idiots right? Saying to herself "LMAO these people make mountains out of molehills" the ONLY reason why she is apologizing is to save face, its simply a PR scheme so she doesn't lose fans. Thats it. Otherwise she would not care.

    Re: Be-Atch – You by far are one of the dumbest person on this site. Now that is saying something. Her ASSISTANTS and management team is paid more than doctors. A celebrity has a TEAM of people doing everything for them. IT WAS THEIR JOB to look into it. It was THEIR JOB to schedule it. It was THEIR JOB to find out the price, WHO was having the party. Why would you pay people to schedule appointments and do transactions if you would end up having to do the research? Thats idiotic. Her management (thats paid hundreds of thousands a year) is the SOLE fault in this.



  34. 34

    Swank is such a phony. She claims not to have known a thing about the resident of Chechnya as though he's unknowable. And she acknowledges that all sorts of human rights groups contacted her - but she never got any of those e-mails. She acts as though she's just a duncy-wuncy incapable of knowing where it is she's going to the interior of the former USSR (or whose event she's at or whose check she's cashing). But then she says she's online all the time - googling chickens and eggs and all sorts of stuff on the web. So she admits to having total access to the 'net, surfing/searching/researching, etc. Its all just now spin control as she talks as though she's an old woman who doesn't have any access to the Internet or information. I call it…BS.



  35. 35

    Re: Adorable Kevy – President (not resident. Anyone else notice how the fields at PerezHilton often drop or skip a letter when typing?



  36. 36

    Finally? I read she was told it was for something entirely different.. like for kid's and this building represented a change in this country and then they snuck this guy in and she had no idea.. Not to mention she's apologized like 3 times. Get over it



  37. 37

    Hilary Swank is a big, fat liar. I watched the event live, and I saw her whole speech. When Swank was asked how she knew about Kadyrov's birthday, she said that she "does her research" and that she also knew of a new theater opening, and was hoping for a movie premiere in Chechnya. She also received a large sum of money for the appearance, so clearly a humane cause wasn't the only reason Hilary visited Chechnya. She is now blatantly lying and denying everything just to save her reputation. You can watch her whole speech on YouTube. There is absolutely no proof that Kadyrov is a "bad, bad guy" or that he "killed his own people". I wish Jay Leno and Hilary Swank would get their facts straight.

    Re: ele_limo – She is so dumb. Don't give me that 'staff booked this gig' shit ! How stupid is she not to know she is entertaining a dictator ! Google much, Bitch ! DUMB DUMB DUMB . And….FUGLY !



  39. 39

    Re: ele_limo – TRUE !



  40. 40

    Who the hell are you Mario. You Eff up all the time…You, of all people, have no right to cast judgement on ANYONE. Should have kept the comments off on this one buddy, just like you do with any other story you do that you know you'll get ripped apart on. God you're an idiot.



  41. 41

    Re: Be-Atch – Jealous much?

    Re: SpyderLee – Two Time Oscar Winner, voted as such by her peers….Don't think your opinion counts much.



  43. 43

    Re: Alliestp – What does her winning 2 oscars have to do with her real personality, you dumb piece of shit. Lots of assholes win awards/oscars all the time. Get your head out of your ass and educate yourself. Your argument is invalid.
