Hilary Swank paid $1.5 million to attend Chechen president's controversial event
Later, she apologized for her attendance, telling the Washington Post, "I deeply regret attending this event, which has thrown into question my long and deeply-held commitment to the protection of human rights. I would never intentionally do anything that raised doubts about such commitment."
Now, Radar reveals that Swank didn't just attend the event -- she was paid $1.5 million for it. No mention of the cash out was made in her statement of regret.
