Talk about reeling one in.

Hilary Swank stopped by the Pure Food Fish Market – a fourth generation fish market out of Seattle's world-famous Pike Place Market – on Monday to stock up on seafood and pose with quite the catch.

The Million Dollar Baby star – who divulged she was having a dinner party – purchased fresh king salmon, scallops, king crab, oysters and mussels.

"She was absolutely delightful," fishmonger Tom Sackville-West told PEOPLE.

Later, Swank posed for a photograph – with a big thumbs up – beside Sean Lakeside, Sr., who has been working at Pure Food Fish Market for 30 years.

Harley Pasternak Blogs: 3 Exercises for Strong, Toned Arms

Originally posted 09/11/2013 03:00PM

There was a time when I would only hear my male clients talk about how they wanted fit, chiseled arms. Nowadays, almost all of my female clients are adamant about having strong, sculpted arms, and that's thanks, in part, to the über-fit actresses dominating the movie screens of the '90s and early 2000s.

The incredible arms of Hilary Swank in Million Dollar Baby, Halle Berry in Catwoman, Demi Moore in G.I. Jane, Resident Evil's Milla Jovovich, and Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider, all inspired women to lose the sleeves and focus on making their arms as amazing as the rest of their bodies.

There are two main muscle groups in the arms: The biceps, which are located on the front of the upper arms; and the triceps, which are on the back of the upper arms. The main function of the biceps is to bend the elbow, while the triceps straighten the arm at the elbow.

Hilary Swank Regrets Attending Chechen President's Birthday

Originally posted 10/13/2011 09:20AM

Hilary Swank has expressed profound regret for attending a concert in Chechnya on Oct. 5 that was essentially a huge birthday party for president Ramzan Kadyrov, who is accused of human rights violations.

After Human Rights Watch criticized her decision to fly in for the show, the two-time Oscar winner, 37, gave a statement to the Associated Press that read: "I deeply regret attending this event. If I had a full understanding of what this event was apparently intended to be, I would never have gone."

Swank says the invitation said nothing about Kadyrov's 35th birthday. Human-rights groups have accused the Chechen leader of torture, abductions and killings.
