Hilary Swank Completes Her First New Year's Resolution: Get Rid Of Excess Baggage

CNN is reporting that Hilary"The Macho Matt Damon" Swank has finally up and dumped her husband, Chad Lowe:
Two-time Oscar-winner Hilary Swank and actor husband Chad Lowe have separated after more than eight years of marriage.

"Hilary and Chad have decided to separate, but they are hopeful they'll be able to get through this tough time," Swank's manager Troy Nankin said in a statement Monday.

There was no elaboration on the reason for the split...

She will next star in "The Black Dahlia," Brian De Palma's adaptation of James Ellroy's novel.

Lowe, who is the brother of actor Rob Lowe, won an Emmy Award for his portrayal of AIDS patient Jesse McKenna on the TV series "Life Goes On" in 1993.

Poor ole Chad. Toot, toot! The gravy train stops here, sir! Disembark!

Call me a gaywad, but I used to watch "Life Goes On" quite regularly. Who could not love Corky? He was the most likable character on television! Whatever happened to him, anyway? I hate it when disable actors only get one role and then disappear. (With the exceptionn of Marlee Matlin. She keeps hangin' on, somehow.) Does he make a cameo in "The Ringer," or anything like that? Corky was so great! As was Patty LuPone. Hideous Kellie Martin, however, I wish I could pretend never existed. She annoys me no end. Even the way she spells her name is irritating. "Kellie." It's almost as bad as "Marlee." Bleh!

What was I talking about again? Oh, right, right. Chad Lowe. You're just so easy to forget, Chad! I felt bad for you when you were filmed sobbing with tears of joy over your Matt Damon-lookalike wife's first Oscar win, and then she totally forgot you were alive. But I'm sure you were use to that phenomonen, right? Just remember all the things Corky taught you, Chad: Life goes on, even if your marriage, sadly, does not.
