Hilary Swank celebrated her second Oscar win on Sunday (27.02.05) with a slap-up meal - in a burger bar. The sexy star - who scored a second Best Actress award for her role in boxing movie 'Million Dollar Baby' - was spotted in her designer Oscar gown gorging on burgers, fries and milkshakes at low-cost Hollywood eatery, Astro Burger. Restaurant owner Dino Andrianos said: "She walked in with a big smile, raised the statue over her head and everybody burst into applause. It was a thrilling moment for everyone." The 30-year-old actress, who was joined by husband Chad Lowe and a host of pals, tucked into a vegetarian burger in full view of other diners as her Oscar sat on the table next to her. But the down-to-earth star, who had swapped a celebratory flute of champagne for a plastic cup of root beer to accompany her meal, couldn't take her eyes off of the glittering gold statuette throughout her fast-food feast. Meanwhile, restaurant boss Andrianos claimed the 'Boys Don't Cry' star, who harked back to her trailer park roots in her acceptance speech, was a regular visitor to the West Hollywood joint, also frequented by luminaries including 'Aviator' actor Leonardo Di Caprio and late movie legend Marlon Brando. He added: "She doesn't have the personality of a star. She's just a regular person - and very low-key. "As far as we're concerned, she was a Million Dollar Baby even before the movie."
