In "The Maybe," a surprise performance piece, Swinton sleeps in a glass box in front of museum goers.

Don't sleep on Tilda Swinton.
The star has taken up a new type of acting – performance art. As part of a surprise performance piece at the Museum of Modern Art in New York called "The Maybe," Swinton, 52, sleeps in a glass box in front of museum goers.
A source tells Gothamist.com that the museum's staff "doesn't know when she's coming until the day of" and the box only contains "cushions and a water jug."

Ask for Tilda Swinton and ye shall receive.
After the late-night time-slot shuffle on NBC that ultimately led to Tonight Show host Conan O'Brien's exit from the network, the comedian joked in his final monologue that he wanted the fiery-haired actress to play him if HBO decided to make a movie about his life.
And Swinton has agreed, saying she would take on the role with relish if it ever happened.
"I would just be only too happy," Swinton told Movieline.com at the Sundance Film Festival, where she is promoting I Am Love. "Yes, yes, yes, absolutely."

Just like Merlin the wizard, who "youthened" rather than get older, Brad Pitt plans to age backwards.
As Benjamin Button, in David Fincher's upcoming movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Pitt portrays someone suffering a rare reverse-aging condition – which costar Tilda Swinton says is amazing to behold.
"The programs they developed for that are just going to blow everything out of the water," the Michael Clayton Oscar-winner, 47, gushed to MTV News about the technology employed to speed up – and turn back – the clock on Pitt. "I think it’s going to be extraordinary."

In a scenario straight out of the movies, thieves executed a real-life Italian job by stealing millions of dollars worth of jewels Sunday.
Seven men dressed as police, who had evidently spent weeks digging a tunnel into the Milan showroom of Damiani, came through the cellar wall, tied up staff and within minutes made off with the jewelers' most valuable pieces, the BBC reports.
Luckily, at least a few pieces of Damiani's best were safely on display thousands of miles away at the Oscars in Hollywood.
It is reported that Michael Clayton's Tilda Swinton, who took the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, was wearing a diamond-studded bracelet provided by the jeweler.
Police are calling the job extremely professional and have little trace of the thieves.
