Swank was nominated for Best Actress Oscar #2. Million Dollar Baby It was a fantastic experience from top to bottom, even though it was not her usual job. The brutal workouts. “I feel so blessed to be able to live my dream, and I had that connection with Maggie. Because Maggie has a line in the movie where she says this is the only thing I ever felt good doing, and that’s how I feel,” Swank told Movieweb. “So I had that connection with her and for me, working with Clint is a dream come true, and for Maggie, that relationship that she has with [his character] Frankie Dunn is so similar to my relationship with Clint. It was just an elegant parallel, and I didn’t want to let Maggie go. Every day that this movie was one day gone, I was sad. And Clint, of course, works so quickly, and your days are so short, and we finished two days early. I kept joking at the end I was going to come to work not knowing my lines and come a little late just so that we could stay on longer.”
