Hilary Swank Honored with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Hilary Swank and her mom came to Hollywood 16 years ago with only $75 in their pockets. On Monday, the two-time Oscar winner received the ultimate sign that the move paid off: a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame."I remember my mom using a roll of quarters to call agents from a pay phone and telling agents they should sign me," said the emotional 32-year-old during the dedication ceremony.

In 2000, a then-unknown Swank walked away with the best-actress Oscar for her chilling portrayal of murdered transgender teen Brandon Teena in "Boys Don't Cry." Five years later, she won another best-actress Oscar as the scrappy and determined boxer Maggie Fitzgerald in "Million Dollar Baby." Her star is the 2325th on the Walk of Fame.

Does anyone remember Hilary when she was on 90210?
