Brave Hillary Swank is reportedly putting on weight, and lots of it, for an upcoming role.

"She'll gain 20 to 30 pounds," we're told by a source close to the production. "It's no sweat. She's played a man before. She can handle anything."
What a trooper.

Hey, she butched up and played a dude, so she can do something as harrowing as putting on a few pounds. How courageous of her, to play someone not rail thin. That takes guts, no pun intended. Or not. Wevs.

Seriously, I am sick of hearing how brave and heroic it is for someone to step outside Hollywood's notion of beauty. It's such bullshit. Besides, we all know what true heroism is.
