Paris - Academy Award-winning US actress Hilary Swank had her handbag snatched in a Paris suburb on Friday by thieves who smashed the window of the taxi she was in, police said.
Three assailants pounced on the taxi as it got stuck in traffic in the northern suburb of Saint-Denis on Friday morning, said a police source.
They broke the window of the back seat, and snatched Swank's designer bag from her hands.
Motorists often fall victim to smash-and-grab robberies in this part of town, which has regular traffic jams.
Swank, 38, has been awarded two Oscars - for her role in the 1999 film Boys don't cry and for 2004's Million Dollar Baby.
