If it wasn't me taking care of him, i think i would always look back and regret that opportunity, says Oscar-winning actress

Hilary Swank is putting her acting career on hold to take care her ailing father.

The two-time Oscar-winning actress revealed in an interview on HuffPost Live that her father, Stephen Swank is living at her home since undergoing a lung transplant and is totally dependent on her in terms of his care.

Therefore, Hilary Swank has decided to put her career on hold until her father recovers.

“There’s been job opportunities, that I’ve passed on…There’s been a couple projects that are beautiful, but in the end, theirs is nothing I want to do more other than being with my dad in his time of need. You can’t get this time back.”

The 40-year old actress believes if she had not decided to take care of her father, she will always feel guilty of not being with him when he needs her the most.

“If it wasn’t me taking care of him, I think I would always look back and regret that opportunity to be able to take care of him and help him through this extraordinary time.” Swank said.

Swank admitted that she was not very close to her father in her younger days. Since her father was a chief Master Sergeant in air force, he mostly remained away from home to fulfill that responsibility and it was not just easy to get in touch with him at that time. But now when they started to spend time with each other, their relationship got a lot better.

“We’re super close,” she said. “The bond that we’ve made in this time, might make up for some of that time that we didn’t have. We didn’t have that one-on-one time together. It’s actually kind of healing.”

“He has a great sense of humor...It’s easy to hang out. He’s an easy guest to have in my home.”Hilary Swank said. She also posted a photo of her with her dad on Father's Day.

#HappyFathersDay to my dear Father! And, to all the Fathers out there! Today and always we cherish you!!
