Tilda Swinton Says She Instantly Bonded With Her Twins

Actress Tilda Swinton is doing the press rounds for her newest film ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin’ and shared with Contact Music about being relieved for her instant bond with her twins, Honor and Xavier, now 13.

“When they were born I remember very precisely looking at them and feeling I was really into them. I liked them instantly.

“But at the same time, I was aware it could have gone the other way. I had always assumed that the maternal instinct automatically kicks in, but in that instant I realised I was lucky. It happens more times than people ever admit that people are in this predicament. It’s a nightmare scenario but all too real.”

Tilda Swinton Says Childbirth Is ‘Violent’ & ‘Murderous’

Tilda Swinton believes childbirth is “violent” and that Hollywood glamorizes birth, which is a “murderous” experience.

“In movies, and particularly in television films, when people have babies they are sitting in a hospital room and there are flowers everywhere,” she said.

“They are made up, magically, and they have a baby in their arms and it’s all really lovely. They start getting pink baby clothes. It’s a truly, truly murderous business. It’s violent.”

The Oscar-winning actress thinks women who can’t handle the nature of childbirth may find themselves “up a gum tree.”

“If one doesn’t embrace that [violence], if one can’t embrace it — and it’s really tough to do that — then you’re up a gum tree because it means you’re going to be cutting off a whole part of yourself,” she said.
