Hilary Swank Thanks Husband A Year Late

[Boys Don’t Cry (1999)] star HILARY SWANK made up for her past mistakes live on stage at this year's Oscars when she thanked her husband CHAD LOWE - a year late.

Swank, who was mortified at last year's (00) ceremony when she omitted to thank her husband after carrying off a BEST ACTRESS award, used her appearance on stage presenting the BEST ACTOR Oscar to RUSSELL CROWE to put right her past wrongs.

Swank told the crowd, "Last year much was made about someone I forgot to thank but Chad knows how grateful I am to him and I would like to take this moment to thank someone else I forgot to thank - Dad, thank you for all your support." (LE/WNV/PDD)
