Tilda Swinton Tried To Kill Her Brother When She Was a Child

Tilda Swinton Tried To Kill Her Brother When She Was a Child

In a recent interview, Academy Award-winning actress Tilda Swinton revealed something pretty creepy - when she was a child, she legitimately wanted to kill her younger brother. Yes, yes, we know, lots of people say they want to kill their siblings out of frustration or annoyance, but according to Swinton who spoke to The Telegraph about it, this was much darker than that.

"He was newly born and I was disappointed, because he was the third boy," Swinton told the magazine of her brother. "That was enough as far as I was concerned." 

Thankfully, things didn't quite pan out that way. "I went into his room to kill him, saw some ribbons from a bonnet going into his mouth, and began to pull them out. And I was discovered saving his life. So I had this strange reputation - my brother's savior - and no one knew I wanted to kill him."

OK, we get that she was young at the time, but still - hello, new level of creepy.

Ironically, Swinton is currently promoting the film, We Need to Talk About Kevin, where she portrays the mother of a boy who commits mass murder.
