Divorce helped Swank find new love

Hollywood actress Hillary Swank credits the breakdown of her marriage to actor Chad Lowe in helping her find love again.

Hilary SwankThe Million Dollar Baby star and Lowe met in 1992, on the set of movie Quiet Days in Hollywood, and wed in a lavish ceremony in 1997 before announcing a divore in 2006, and Swank turned to her agent, John Campisi, for support, reports Daily Star.

But their working relationship soon broke down - when they started dating.

"There was no spark. What's interesting is, there was never anything. It wasn't until we were well into the dissipation of our respective relationships. Going through something so difficult at the same time, we became very good friends. We became closer and closer," she said.

"It was so unexpected. We both recognised that if we were going to take the relationship to the next step, we could no longer work together," she added.

Swank reveals she is hoping to cement their relationship with a baby but for now is busy looking after his son Sam, from a previous relationship.

"Sam's a sweetheart. I most definitely want children. It's something I'd like to do someday. And when the timing is right I'll hopefully know it," she said.
