Tilda 'Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest'

One of the fiercest actresses today (if not, the fiercest) Tilda Swinton, recently sat down with The Telegraph Magazine to talk about her new film "We Need To Talk About Kevin" in which she plays the mother of a teenage murderer (think Macaulay Culkin in The Good Son...BEST MOVIE. GO AND RENT IT NOW). Anyway, during her sit-down, Swinton discusses, how like her character's son in the film, she too had a little crazy sexy murder in her when she was just a little girl:

"Years ago, when James Bulger was murdered, every newspaper front page was talking about evil. At that point, having suppressed it for years, I remembered when I was four or five, I tried to kill my own brother. He was newly born and I was disappointed, because he was the third boy. That was enough as far as I was concerned. 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. It took the Bulger case for me to remember that I'd seriously wanted to."

God, I knew I loved this bitch for more than just her acting skills.
