Hilary Swank and Chad Lowe to Divorce

Two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank has ended all hope that she’ll reconcile with husband Chad Lowe after announcing she’s planning to file for divorce.

The couple split late last year and Swank announced the sad news at the beginning of 2006, but has since been seen dining with Lowe, the brother of actor Rob Lowe.

Now, however, she plans to make the split official and has told her attorney, Jeffrey A. Bernstein, to announce the news.

In a statement released to People magazine on Friday, Bernstein says, “Hilary Swank and Chad Lowe have jointly decided to divorce. They continue to be friends and have the utmost respect for one another.”

Swank, 31, and Lowe, 38, were married for eight years. They have no children.
