Hilary Swank has been ordered to pay $163 for taking an apple and orange into New Zealand
"Million Dollar Baby" star Hilary Swank has faced her final fine because "simply forgot" she had an apple and orange fruits in her bag after her 20-hour flight into New Zealand. Losing her bid for an appeal, the 30-year-old Oscar-winning actress was issued notice of a fine for failing to declare the forbidden fruits while arriving from Los Angeles on January 15, 2005.
She at first appealed a penalty, which unfortunately rejected by the Manukau District Court. And so she was yesterday ordered to pay out $142 in fines plus an additional $21 for court fees.
