Emmy Rossum defended Hilary Swank following her viciously trolling over her pregnancy.
The Oscar-winner, 48, confirmed this week that she is expecting twins together with Philip Schneider. However, she has come under fire from critics online who made fun of her age as well as posting snide messages online suggesting that she may not live to see her children grow up.
One troll wrote: “AREN’T YOU LIKE 50 YRS OLD? When they graduate college, you’ll be in their 70s. MIGHT live to see their marriage, perhaps.”
The comment prompted a foul-mouthed response from Emmy – who worked with Hilary on 2014 movie ‘You’re Not You’ – and she hit back in a strongly worded reply, writing: “Gfy which is the abbreviation for ‘Go f*** yourself’.”
Hilary’s fans backed Emmy with one referencing the actress’ ‘Shameless’ character Fiona, writing: “Exactly what Fiona would say and I’m HERE FOR IT.”
Hilary confirmed her baby news on Wednesday (05.10.22) by sharing a video showing her pointing to her baby bump which she captioned: “Coming soon … DOUBLE feature!” alongside two baby emojis.
Later, she appeared on “Good Morning America” to promote her new television series ‘Alaska Daily. She said about the pregnancy: “I am so happy to share this with you and America right now. This is something that I have wanted for a while and my next goal is to become a mother! I’m going be a mom to two kids.
The 48-year old star was congratulated for the happy news and said that it was so great to be able talk about it and share it. It’s not too far for me to share it. This is the first time I’m sharing it. The star of ‘Million Dollar Baby” declined to disclose when the twins were due. Philip has been married since 2018 to Hilary.
