Actress Hillary Swank has come clean on her ruse on the public, pretending to be public figure and Republican activist Ken Mehlman. This is after stepping down as chairman of the Republican National Committee, in light of the need to promote her upcoming horror film, “The Reaping,” for Universal Pictures.

The actress is in fact an Academy Award recipient for a role impersonating a male, the late Matthew Sheppard, in the film “Boys Don’t Cry.” Swank denies that her ruse played any part in her estrangement and divorce from actor Chad Lowe, who she says was largely supportive of her need to pretend to be Mehlman in the final years of their marriage.
