Hilary Swank has revealed what her trick of the holiday season is… elastic waistbands! She says it’s her must have! Unlike many actresses she says that she eats what she wants during Christmas time and indulges on lots of food that is bad for you. Good girl! She said: "You have to have elastic waistbands! So that you can eat a lot and let it stretch a little bit. You've got to have the elastic, and I think sparkles are always good for the holidays," Elastic and sparkles… what a combination! She continued about her love of food and said#: "Eat away! Starting on Halloween, all the way through New Year's, I'm eating. That's why elastic waistbands are a must." OK, we get you Hilary, you eat like a pig! Although you do look very skinny still, so we’re not sure if we believe you! Hilary has had a bit of a controversial year – in which she ended up firing her manager. Hilary attended a party that was celebrating the birthday of the Chechen president. She got paid to be at the party and this outraged human rights groups. Hilary apologised for going to the party and promised to give her fee to charity. She also then fired her manager of 8 years – we guess because he must have arranged it in the first place. There is a rumour around that Hilary will produce and star in an adaptation of comic book and iPhone game Shrapnel. We’re not too sure how that will work. One film we know she is definitely in, is New Year’s Eve. The film is out, well, just in time for New Year’s Eve conveniently! There are lots of other big names in the film too and is getting great reviews by critics who have already seen it!
