Tilda Swinton, discussing the shocking 1993 murder of 2-year-old James Bulger, confessed a dark memory from her childhood in an interview with The Telegraph (via Us Weekly):

"Years ago, when James Bulger was murdered, every newspaper front page was talking about evil. At that point, having suppressed it for years, I remember when I was 4 or 5, I tried to kill my own brother. He was newly born and I was disappointed, because he was the third boy. That was enough as far as I was concerned. ... I went into his room to kill him, saw some ribbons from a bonnet going into his mouth, and began to pull them out. And I was discovered saving his life. So I had this strange reputation -- my brother's savior -- and no one knew I wanted to kill him. It too, the Bulger case for me to remember that I'd seriously wanted to."
