Hilary Swank believes in miracles.
The two-time Oscar winner - who once lived in a car with her mother until they had enough money to rent out an apartment - is still amazed at how much success she has had in Hollywood.
Hilary, 35, said: "I would say I believe in miracles, especially after seeing where I've come from and where I am today.
"A lot of young women - and some men - come up to me and say, 'You're a reminder to me to not give up my dream.' That you don't have to be born into it."
The 'Amelia' star also feels her humble background has made her appreciate where she is now.
She added: "It's a quality of my life that I wouldn't change for the world. It's made me really appreciate what I have in my life now. It also keeps me grounded. I don't want to ever forget where I've come from."
