Hilary Swank: Elastic Waistbands Are a Must for the Holidays

While most Hollywood actresses seem to be constantly watching their figures, Hilary Swank admits she loves to eat during the holidays. The New Years Eve actress tells Us Weekly that her approach to the holidays is to think stretchy pants instead of strict diets.

The 37-year-old double Oscar winner confesses that her must-have holiday wardrobe staple is elastic waistbands!

"So that you can eat a lot and let it stretch a little bit," she says. "You've got to have the elastic, and I think sparkles are always good for the holidays."

In fact, Swank doesn't just start ignoring her calorie consumption between Thanksgiving and Christmas; she gives the holiday eating an annual early start. 

"Eat away!" she said. "Starting on Halloween, all the way through New Year's, I'm eating. That's why elastic waistbands are a must."

As for the actress' personal New Year's Eve resolutions? She's still not focusing on diet or exercise.

"[I'll probably have the] same New Year's resolution as I've had for a while which is to slow down every once in awhile and take some time for myself," she said. "I'm not very good at it."
