the Razz: HILARY'S SCHOOL SHAME.

Byline: BEVERLEY LYONS & SHOWBIZ LIZ

HOLLYWOOD star Hilary Swank may be a little uncomfortable in her new role as an inspirational teacher . . . she was a high school drop-out.

The Academy Award-winning actress tackled the contentious issue when talking about her role in Freedom Writers, which is based on a true story.

"I'm not proud to say I'm a high school drop-out," she admitted. "I think school is really, really important and we have an education problem in this country. It's a shame."

According to Hilary, her report cards were filled with comments such as "Hilary will not stop talking" and "She's a jabbermouth".
