Spotted: Hilary Swank, Bill Murray and Helen Mirren at Roots

Hilary Swank with Roots' Michael Budman

Hilary Swank swept by Roots not once but twice on Monday. The two-time Oscar winner, in town gunning for her third as a waitress who earns a law degree to get her brother out of prison in Conviction, was all over the leather offerings. The Hangover’s Zach Galifianakis stopped by the same day to pick up a pair of  boots and Bill Murray scooped up some swag there earlier in the week. Helen Mirren also gave the store her royal endorsement. “My two favourite shops, literally in the world, are here,” she told CTV on the red carpet for The Debt. “One is Roots, and the other is Bedo.” Wait—Yonge Street’s sexy street wear shop Bedo? Here’s hoping they thank her with some sleek, low-cut evening wear.
