Hilary Swank and John Campisi have broken up.

A rep for the Academy Award-winning actress confirms that she and her boyfriend of five years have decided to end their relationship.

The pair split earlier this summer, her rep said.

Hindsight being 20-20, Oscar winner Hilary Swank says she probably should have negged an invite top the birthday party for the President of Chechnya last week.

You know, with the dude being accused of torturing and killing people and stuff.

Swank, Jean Claude Van Damme and others attended a concert in Chechnya for president Ramzan Kadyrov on October 5, to the dismay of human rights groups.

"I deeply regret attending this event. If I had a full understanding of what this event was apparently intended to be, I would never have gone," said Swank.

The actress says at the time she accepted the invitation to the concert, she had no idea the event was intended to honor Ramzan Kadyrov personally.

Swank gave a speech at the event, however, and even wished him a happy birthday. Asked how she knows that, she replied, "I read ... I do my research."

Kadyrov has been accused of torturing and murdering his political rivals, though Kadyrov claims that's all lies, made up by opponents to make him look bad.

Mission accomplished in that case.

What's the status of Hilary Swank and John Campisi's relationship? Come on. We should already know the answer, the two-time Oscar winner says.

"Of course I'm in love," the actress tells W magazine. "Or I wouldn't be in this relationship for as long as I've been. He's a great guy."

Hilary Swank and John Campisi, a CAA talent agent, have been together since the summer of 2006, following her split from husband Chad Lowe.

Hilary Swank is happy with John Campisi and life. 

Swank doesn't elaborate further about Campisi - the lucky stiff who has likely gotten to see Hilary Swank nude if he's dated her for a year - but she does talk about another constant companion - her vitamins. She takes around 45 daily.

"I just took my most important ones, which are my Oz Garcia Longevity Pak," she says. "I shoved them in my mouth right before I met you, which I actually shouldn't do, because I choked on my vitamins once before."

But vitamins alone aren't enough to stay healthy, says Swank. "Exercise is also really important to me," she adds. "I think it gives me more energy."

One love affair that has faded for Swank, however: her relationship with New York, which she recently left after many years as a resident.

"I looked and looked and looked for a place in New York," she explains. "I just didn't find anything. Prices have just skyrocketed!"

This is the question, readers.

Let's forget about nude Hilary Swank pictures at the moment and focus our eyes on this Oscar winner's hair. It looks confused.

No, not as confused as the ever-changing looks of The Olsen Twins, but Swank appears to have jumped on the bang-wagon. And The Hollywood Gossip wants to know which style you prefer.

Take your time. Go compare Cameron Diaz manes if that'll help. But let us know soon. Very little is at stake if you don't.

Two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank plays a real-life teacher who becomes an inspiration for troubled teens in the movie Freedom Writers, which opens this weekend.

At the premiere last night in L.A., Hilary met up with Patrick Dempsey, who plays her husband. Even though they worked together while filming the movie, she can't help but be struck by how good looking the Grey's Anatomy leading man is. The same goes for Patrick... when he sees (or even thinks about himself). Yes. He is that McDreamy, folks.

Patrick Dempsey Style

Nude Britney Spears pics?

Can't say we were shocked by those.

But if The Hollywood Gossip staff had to select one female celebrity we could never imagine baring it (almost) all, it would probably be Hilary Swank.

The actress is attractive, after all, but not exactly known as a sex symbol.

Until now.

Following in the naked footsteps of Penelope Cruz, the Oscar-winner posed for the 2007 Pirelli calendar. And someone forgot to dress her in the morning.

The results are a few sensual shots. We're more surprised by these than the photo of Nick Lachey with his arm around a fake moose. But we're proud of Swank for branching out.

Two-time Oscar-winner Hilary Swank opens up to Vanity Fair about her recent divorce and some of the reasons behind it.

Swank's 13-year romance with Chad Lowe unraveled this year, leaving the actress broken, but nonetheless forthright and optimistic.

  • Hilary Swank Little Black Dress
  • Chad Lowe Suited Up

The winner of Best Actress honors for both Million Dollar Baby and Boys Don't Cry announced her separation from Lowe in January, but expressed hope that they could reconcile. But in late May, the couple jointly decided to divorce. They had been married since 1997.

"They continue to be friends and have the utmost respect for one another," a source said.

Swank admits that Lowe had substance-abuse problems, but denied that it was a reason for their separation, adding that he's been sober for three years.

"It's an enormous obstacle to overcome, and he's doing it. He's living a sober life. I know how difficult it is, and I'm really proud of his sobriety," she said.

Swank said that if she had to attribute the breakup of her marriage to one particular thing, it would simply be gradually growing apart as they grew older.

"I would say we grew apart. But there's never one thing. It's an accumulation of things that make it slowly start to drift apart."

  • Why she and Chad didn't have a family
  • Why she is happy now
  • Her pattern of taking care of everyone else
  • Marriage, divorce, and dating
  • Why she loves The Hollywood Gossip!

Just kidding about the last part. But we know she would if she checked us out.
