Attorney Gloria Allred always has to give her two cents on everything!
Hilary Swank is promoting her new film Conviction - here she is outside Letterman in NYC - a true story about Betty Anne Waters, who worked years becoming a lawyer to free her wrongfully accused brother Kenneth from prison.
So why does Allred have some "particularly strong words" for the actress herself? Because Swank, who's also an executive producer on the film, never consulted with the actual murder victim's (Katharina Brow) children.
Gloria Allred says: "The murder victim's children feel that no proper respect or compassion has been shown by Ms. Swank for the murder victim and her family."
In a press conference today, Allred and the kids say they want a sit-down with the actress. Le sigh.
Conviction opens tomorrow; will this stop you from seeing the critically acclaimed film?
Not at all!
