Tilda Swinton Facts: 25 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Star

27 June 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Tilda Swinton is known for her unique appearance and eccentric roles, but that only scratches the surface of this international star.

Swinton began her career in creative, arthouse flicks before slowly transitioning to more mainstream roles, though don't pigeon-hole her as merely an actress; she's inspired designers and appeared in performance art around the globe.
