Actress Hilary Swank let Oprah Winfrey chop off a little more than 9 inches of her hair during a taped segment that is to air on The Oprah Winfrey Show today. The TV shearing was done in the name of charity: Swank, 33, donated her locks to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, which works with the American Cancer Society to provide wigs at no charge to women with hair loss caused by their cancer treatments. Swank says she has been growing her hair "for the last six months to donate. I've been taking a lot of vitamins and taking really good care of it knowing that it would go to a woman in need."

YOU KNOW, John Campisi is a very different kind of guy. This guy has a job and he's busy!" That's Mariska Hargitay, comparing Hilary Swank's current beau, movie agent Campisi, to her ex-hubby, actor Chad Lowe. I'm sure Mariska, didn't mean to diss Chad, who has already been hammered a bit by Miss Swank - remember that Vanity Fair profile? Oh, well, maybe Mariska can make it up and give Chad a role on Law & Order: SVU. Swank is all glam and feminine on the cover and inside W. Those qualities - or lack thereof - are much the point of the story and Swank's ongoing career crisis.

WHAT DOES this mean? Hilary Swank, the two-time Oscar winner, was shopping for a baby bed at Bellini in Beverly Hills. Her boyfriend, agent John Campisi, accompanied her. Maybe she was just getting a gift for an expectant friend. Or for herself? More shopping Britney Spears was also spotted shopping in Beverly Hills -- not for baby furniture, blessedly!

In 1994, when she starred in "The Next Karate Kid," no designers were clamoring to flatter Hilary Swank's five-star figure. But since her gender-bending turn in "Boys Don't Cry," which has earned her an Academy Award nomination for best actress, she's reached a kind of quirky fashion-plate status. The willowy actress with the punk pixie haircut has become both edgy ingenue and the darling of designers eager to outfit her for the Academy Awards. "She's an attractive proposition because she's a contender and she's a cute young thing and she pulled off a difficult role, says William Calvert, a New York women's luxury clothing designer.

The seeds of most biblical horror movies are sown in the Book of Revelation; The Reaping at least gets marks for originality for springing from Exodus. The film is anchored by Hilary Swank's strong performance as Katherine, a Louisiana State University professor and former minister whose expertise is the debunking of "miracles." The actress skillfully balances hard-headed cynicism with emotional wounds that a lesser performer might play ham-handedly. The Reaping (Warner Bros.) Staring Hilary Swank, David Morrissey.

Amid its familiar banalities and formula twists, "The Next Karate Kid" comes up with one new idea for dealing with difficult American teen-agers: ship 'em off to a Buddhist monastery for two weeks!When Mr. Miyagi does this to Julie (Hilary Swank) in the film, it works the kind of wonders in attitude-adjustment most parents would pay a fortune for. When she gets home, she even picks up her room!The film has one other nice touch: It begins with a ceremony honoring the Japanese-Americans who fought so valiantly in the European theater in World War II while their parents and younger siblings languished in internment camps, a story that shouldn't be forgotten.

Hilary Swank rushes into a hotel suite, all sharp angles and big bones, plops down on a seat and dazzles with a toothy, very attractive smile. She's lanky and friendly and looks All-American smashing in a black dress and heels. A tomboy with sex appeal, Swank is the totally hot jock girlfriend you took (or wish you did) to the senior prom. The 32-year-old actress is in town to publicize Freedom Writers, a new film in which she plays real-life high school teacher Erin Gruwell, who turned her Long Beach, Calif.

All he had to do was flash a cool half-smile and the room went ballistic. Baltimore R&B-pop crooner Mario made an appearance yesterday at the Charles Theatre, where 120 students from Thurgood Marshall High School were invited to an early screening of Freedom Writers. The movie, in theaters next month, is based on the true story of a troubled California high school and a young English teacher (Hilary Swank) who inspires her students to write their often-violent life stories. Mario -- who last year appeared in the Baltimore-based Step Up, his first flick -- plays Andre, a vocal student who's conflicted about his life in the streets.

This Sunday, you'll probably feel a bit jealous of the svelte figures of Hollywood's first ladies - Cate Blanchett, Annette Bening, Hilary Swank - as they swan along on the Kodak Theatre's red carpet before the 77th Annual Academy Awards. Admit it. Doesn't even the idea of a size 2 make you blue? If so, don't blame California dessert chef and plus-size model Whitney Dineen. She's doing her best to, well, even the scales. "Americans are getting bigger and bigger, but actors are getting skinnier and skinnier.

The year is 1912, and two suffragettes are sitting in a Philadelphia coffee shop having a friendly argument about political strategy. One cites progress made in the national campaign. The other says, "What? Sixty-four years of begging, and women can now vote in nine states? How many years is that per state? ... You do the math." "Look," her friend says, warning her that such statements could cost them a promotion to the national office, "you want to be two girls on a corner soap box? Or, do you want to go to Washington and play with the big lads?"
