Beyond being famous for her film work—which has earned her two Academy Awards—Hilary Swank has also made a name for herself as a leading advocate for animals. On Thanksgiving night (Fox, 8 to 10 p.m.), she’ll bring her talents and humane passion to a special program celebrating rescue dogs: Fox’s Cause for Paws: An All-Star Dog Special. She is co-producing this groundbreaking show with Michael Levitt, producer of special programming and a leader in dog rescue. Jane Lynch will be the co-host. We recently had the opportunity to talk with Swank about her animal advocacy and this extraordinary television show.
Claudia Kawczynska: What drew you to rescue/shelter dogs?
Hilary Swank: Every year, nearly 8 million animals end up in shelters, of which approximately 4 million never make it out. We want to do the work [on this program] to make people aware of the extent of the problem, because I don’t believe that anyone’s life should be cut short. Up to 25 percent of homeless animals are purebred, if people are looking for a purebred. There are puppies; young, already trained dogs; and senior dogs. If people are made aware, they will know that their four-legged family member is waiting for them at a shelter or rescue organization. So many people want a dog but are either misinformed or simply unaware of these facts. Rescuing a dog shouldn’t be arduous or difficult, and this program will bring to light just how simple the process truly is if they have the right tools.
Oscar winner Hilary Swank is unleashing some serious star power to help rescue dogs get adopted by families who want to make a difference on Thanksgiving — or those who just want to watch terriers instead of touchdowns on TV.
“Fox’s Cause for Paws: An All-Star Dog Spectacular” will air Nov. 27 and feature a slew of celebrities aiming to find thousands of needy dogs a home by Black Friday.
Hosted by Swank and “Glee” actress Jane Lynch, the two-hour program crams in dog stories, viral videos, musical tributes, a fundraiser, contests and glitterati galore.
It ranks among the many telethons to which celebrities have lent their fame to benefit everything from breast cancer research to Hurricane Katrina victims, but the program is believed to be the first televised effort to raise money for rescue dogs and get the animals adopted.
Hilary among Patricia Arquette, Laura Dern, Julianne Moore, Reese Witherspoon and Amy Adams cover The Hollywood Reporter Actress Roundtable issue. Check some outtakes from photoshoot and behind the scenes pictures.

In THR’s annual actress roundtable, this season’s top seven awards contenders — including Amy Adams, Patricia Arquette, Laura Dern, Felicity Jones and Hilary Swank — open up about how to fight the lack of female leads and what you teach your daughter when you yell at a paparazzo to “leave us the f— alone”.
If the vibe at this year’s Hollywood Reporter Actress Roundtable was especially convivial, it was because the panel was packed with longtime friends and colleagues. Patricia Arquette, 46 (Boyhood), has known pal Laura Dern, 47 (Wild), for more than two decades; Dern has worked with Julianne Moore, 53 (Still Alice), and currently is promoting her supporting turn in Wild with star Reese Witherspoon, 38; Amy Adams, 40 (Big Eyes), and Hilary Swank, 40 (The Homesman), met each other at THR’s Actress Roundtable in 2010 and stayed in touch after Adams sent Swank a thank-you note; and relative newcomer Felicity Jones, 31 (The Theory of Everything), has been getting to know her self-professed idols while making the rounds this awards season. The hourlong roundtable, held for the first time in a soundstage on the 20th Century Fox lot and taped to air on the A&E network Dec. 28, featured a candid discussion about everything from Jennifer Lawrence’s hacked photos to the recent attention on Renee Zellweger’s face (“It’s cruel and rude and disrespectful,” says Witherspoon). An edited transcript is below, with the full video available Nov. 25 on THR.com.
Check out some screencaptures which I made from Hilary’s apperance on Conan.
