Swinton Gives Away 'Meaningless' Oscar
British actress Tilda Swinton has given away the Oscar she won at this year's (08) ceremony - insisting the trophy "doesn't mean that much".
The 47-year-old star landed the Best Supporting Actress gong for her role in 2007 movie Michael Clayton alongside George Clooney.
But she admits she soon grew tired of having the prize at her home in Scotland, so she gave it away.
Swinton says, "I took it to Scotland and everybody got bored of it after four or five hours. Believe it or not - I feel it's almost sacrilegious to say this - but it really doesn't mean that much to people where I live.
"I have an American agent who is the spitting image of this (trophy). There's no way I would be in America if it wasn't for him. I gave it away to my agent."
