Hey, at least she's got an excuse: It's for a film role!

The two-time Oscar-winner is playing vanished pilot Amelia Earhart in Amelia, currently filming. Think Swank will nab a third gold statue for this role? Highly likely!

Here's the handsome lady leaving Neil George Salon in Beverly Hills yesterday - she didn't want our photogs to follow her around, but she was very polite and posed for a few pics. Thanks, Hil!
