AceShowbiz - %cHilary Swank% is planning to put her Hollywood career on hold for some time. During an interview with HuffPost Live on Friday, July 3, the two-time Academy Award-winning actress revealed she would take a break because she wanted to take care of her ailing father who recently underwent a lung transplant.
"My dad is living with me...I'm his sole caretaker right now. He's an easy guest," Swank said in the interview. "It's a certain amount of time [to serve as a caretaker], but in a lifespan it's a blink of an eye."
"There's been job opportunities I've passed on, and things that I said 'I can't,' but I mean, really, what we're here for is our family, right?" she added. "There's been a couple projects that are beautiful, but in the end, there's nothing I want to do more other than being with my dad in his time of need."
The "Million Dollar Baby" star said that when she was a kid, she and her father were not close and rarely spent time together. That's why she thought it's the chance for them to make up for lost memories and strengthen their father-daughter bond.
"You can't get this time back, and I'd look back and regret not taking care of him in this time. It's a true honor," Hilary said, adding, "It's actually kind of healing in a way. It's easy to hang out."
