Tilda Swinton Tried to Kill Her Baby Brother When She Was 4

Tilda Swinton opened up to The Telegraph magazine about attempting to kill her brother when he was a new born because he was the third boy and she thought two was enough. Sounds. Reasonable. She didn’t go through with it though and actually ended up saving his life.

Recalling the brutal 1993 murder of 2-year-old British boy James Bulger, Swinton said: “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.”

But, thankfully, the Michael Clayton actress had a change of heart when visiting her baby brother’s nursery. “I went into his room to kill him, saw some ribbons from a bonnet going into his mouth, and began to pull them out,” Swinton recalled. “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.” Us Magazine

Tilda Swinton would make a terrible psychotic child killer. She should work on that. Maybe start with small animals and work her way up to children. You know, baby steps.
