Tilda Swinton

Celebrities Great Britain - November 5th 1960

Katherine Matilda Swinton, better known as Tilda Swinton, was born into a military family and was subsequently educated at an English and Scottish boarding school. At Cambridge, she studied social and political science and graduated in 1983 with an English literature degree. But while she was there, she performed in many stage productions and worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company for one season.

Today, she lives in Scotland with her boyfriend, Sandro Kopp, who is an artist and incidentally born some 18 years after Swinton.

However, the father of her two children is John Byrne.

Swinton is perhaps best known for her roles in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "Burn After Reading," "The Beach" and  "The Chronicles of Narnia" movies. She won the 2007 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in "Michael Clayton." She also has been nominated for Golden Globes because of her performances in "The Deep End" and "We Need to Talk About Kevin."
