Hilary Swank is reportedly planning to buy a Paris apartment to be closer to her new boyfriend.
The American actress has been dating French real estate broker Laurent Fleury for several weeks and it seems their romance is heating up.
They have been spotted strolling hand-in-hand in Los Angeles, with Hilary said to be considering a drastic change to ensure the relationship stays strong. Laurent is based in Paris, so the actress has begun learning the language in anticipation of spending more time in the city.
"Hilary loves Paris and wants to get her own apartment in the city," an insider told RadarOnline.
"Laurent, who has a real estate business, is based there, and they have been sharing his apartment whenever Hilary comes over from the US. But now Hilary has decided that she wants her own apartment and is open to the idea of learning French."
The 38-year-old star has been watching French movies and is even considering trying out for a role in one.
Since spending more time in the country after finding love with Laurent she has reportedly realised how much she likes it there.
Hilary recently listed her home in Pacific Palisades, California, for sale for $9.49 million.
Prior to meeting Laurent, Hilary had been single since her split from John Campisi in the summer. The pair began a relationship in 2006, following the breakdown of her marriage to Chad Lowe.
