NEW YORK — Reports are swirling that Guerlain is considering an all-American knockout to be the face of a new fragrance.

Hilary Swank, the two-time Oscar-winning actress, is said to be in negotiations with the fabled French fragrance house. If true, Swank, who last year starred in and collected best actress honors for the boxing hit “Million Dollar Baby,” would join the likes of Nicole Kidman, Gwyneth Paltrow and Liv Tyler in fronting a fragrance.

Swank is currently the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s ambassador to Saks Fifth Avenue’s annual Key to the Cure for cancer campaign. She’s no stranger to fashion and beauty, appearing in a series of sultry ads last year for Calvin Klein’s Sensual Support underwear brand.

A Guerlain spokesman denied the reports. Swank’s publicist could not be reached for comment.
