Tilda Swinton: I gave Oscar to my agent
Tilda Swinton donated her Oscar to her Hollywood agent Brian Swardstrom.
The 47-year-old was named Best Supporting Actress earlier this year for her role in Michael Clayton.
But Tilda claims the novelty soon wore off when she showed it to her family.
‘I took it to Scotland, as some kind of proof mechanism, and everybody got bored with it after four or five hours,’ she tells the Daily Record.
‘Believe it or not - I feel it's almost sacrilegious to say this - it really doesn't mean that much to people where I live.
'In my house, they don't even recognise it. We don't even have a television.
‘They were kind of intrigued with it, like they'd be intrigued if you had come in with a cucumber and put it on the table, and say, "This is interesting." So I gave it away to my agent.’
