Gossip: Tilda Swinton
When Swinton was a young girl, she wanted to kill her newborn brother.
For decades, Tilda Swinton harbored a dark secret, said UsMagazine.com. As a young girl, she wanted to murder her newborn brother. “I was disappointed because he was the third boy,” said the Oscar-winning actress, 50. It was the widely covered 1993 murder of 2-year-old James Bulger that prompted her recollection. “Having suppressed it for years, I remembered when I was 4 or 5, I tried to kill my own brother.” But Swinton had a last-minute change of heart. “I saw some ribbons from a bonnet going into his mouth and began to pull them out,” she says. “And I was discovered saving his life. So I had this strange reputation—my brother’s savior—and no one knew I wanted to kill him.”
