Swinton cuts promo duties to clean kids' school

Actress Tilda Swinton jetted back from promoting her Oscar-tipped movie We Need To Talk About Kevin in Spain to clean her children's school.

The Beach star is currently on a promo tour for the movie ahead of the upcoming awards season, and was carrying out interviews in Europe when she dashed back to her home in Scotland to attend cleaning duties at the private Moray Steiner School.

Her twins Honor and Xavier are educated at the small school, and to keep down annual fees, parents must stick to a chore rota.

And Swinton refuses to allow her celebrity status to stop her from getting her hands dirty.

She tells Britain's Sunday Mail newspaper, "This weekend I will clean my children's school. We don't have someone to do that. We're very small. We do it ourselves."
