in Bellingham until she was 16.[12][15] She also competed in the Junior Olympics and the Washington state championships in swimming, and she ranked fifth in the state in all-around gymnastics.[16] Swank made her first appearance on stage when she was nine years old, starring in The Jungle Book.[15] When she was 15, her parents separated, and her mother, supportive of her daughter's desire to act, moved with her to Los Angeles, where they lived out of their car until Swank's mother saved enough money to rent an apartment.[14] Swank has called her mother the inspiration for her acting career and her life.[17] In California, Swank enrolled in South Pasadena High School, later dropping out because of her ADHD
ADHD
and lack of interest.[18] She described her time at South Pasadena High School, "I felt like such an outsider. I didn't feel like I fit in. I didn't belong in any way. I didn't even feel like the teachers wanted me there. I just felt like I wasn't seen or understood."[14] She explained that she became an actor because she felt like an outsider, "As a kid I felt that I belonged only when I read a book or saw a movie, and could get involved with a character. It was natural that I became an actor because I longed so much to be those other people, or at least to play them."[19] Career[edit] 1991–1998[edit] Swank made her film debut in the 1992 comedy horror Buffy the Vampire Slayer, playing a small role, after which she acted in the direct-to-video drama Quiet Days in Hollywood, where she co-starred with Chad Lowe, who would become her husband for a time.[10] Her first leading film role was in the fourth installment of the Karate Kid series, The Next Karate Kid
