A GLUM-looking Hilary Swank looked totally preoccupied yesterday but not with the filming of her latest film PS I Love You on location in New York.
The two-time Oscar winner starring in the big-screen adaptation of Cecilia Ahern's first novel seemed more interested in a text message on her mobile phone.
Dressed in a long quilted coat and Ugg boots, the A-list actress was fully prepared for the chilly autumn weather.
And Swank is certainly no stranger to warding off the cold after filming in Ireland, where the 32-yearold donned a pair of red wellies to help keep the cold and damp away.
Miss Swank is playing the lead role in the film, starring as a young widow struggling to come to terms with her husband's death. After his passing, she discovers a box of letters with instructions to open one each month over the following ten months.
Each letter contains a task that helps her slowly to come to terms with her husband's death and move on with her life. Scottish actor Gerard Butler takes the role of her late husband. Butler previously starred in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and played Count Dracula in Dracula 2000, while Swank has won Oscars for her roles in Boys Don't Cry and Million Dollar Baby.
The film also features Kathy Bates, who won an Academy Award for her role in Misery.
Cecilia Ahern has said she loves the screenplay version of her bestseller, and has given her enthusiastic support to the five-star cast.
Meanwhile, she recently published her fourth book, Mrs Whippy, and is working on a television pilot in the U.S. She is also waiting for Disney to turn her third book, If You Could See Me Now, into a musical.
