While most people brag about being nominated for the Oscar, Clint Eastwood has won four of the coveted accolade. His first was in 1993 when he picked up two Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Picture; this was for his effort in Unforgiven, a 1992 revisionist Western film which he directed and produced. A decade and a few years later, Clint won two Oscars again in the same categories. This time, he was honored for his roles in the 2004 film, Million Dollar Baby. Apart from starring as Frankie Dunn in the sports drama, Eastwood co-produced, directed, and even scored the film that starred other popular figures in the industry like Morgan Freeman and Hilary Swank. Considering Clint Eastwood’s age, it comes as a surprise to many that the man is still making films. Exactly how old is he? Find out for yourself, in addition to answers to other questions you’ve been asking about the American actor.
What Is Clint Eastwood’s Age?
Only a handful of people of Clint Eastwood’s age are still active. As of when this report was filed, the man is almost a nonagenarian! As such, it remains a wonder to many how he’s still scheduling projects he’d work on. Sometime in May 2019, it was revealed that the Hollywood veteran would be working on a film based on Richard Jewell, a suspect of the 1996 Olympic bombing. Even though Walt Disney backed out from making the movie expected to be titled The Ballad of Richard Jewell after it acquired 20th Century Fox, Clint went out of his way to arrange for the release of the film through Warner Bros. As far as we can tell, all is set for the octogenarian to commence shooting.
A lot of people may be waiting for the man to announce his retirement but Clint has made it clear that he’d hang on until he can’t hold up anymore. According to what theguardian once reported, Eastwood said his retirement would be gradual. It was on the 31st of May 1930 that the fine filmmaker was birthed and named Clinton Eastwood Jr. Of Dutch, English, Scottish and Irish heritage, records have it that Clint was born in San Francisco, California.
How Old Was He In The Mule?
In the long list of Clint Eastwood’s acting roles, The Mule is thus far, the film he last starred in; he played the lead role of Earl Stone while serving as the director and producer of the 2018 film. Being his first acting project since 2012, it is only normal that playing a starring role in the crime drama reawakened people’s interest in the man’s age. It was thought that he’s done acting but only hadn’t made it official. Clint was 88 years old when he played Earl Stone, a character based on Leo Earl Sharp who was regarded as the world’s oldest drug mule. Leo was a 90-year-old drug mule for the Sinaloa Drug Cartel, an international drug trafficking syndicate.
On a budget of $50 million, the movie pulled $174.5 million at the Box Office.
How Long Has He Been Married?
The phenomenal filmmaker isn’t married to anyone since 2014 when he parted ways with Dina Eastwood. Born Dina Maria Ruiz, Clint Eastwood was 65 years old when he got married to the journalist. They met in 1992 when she interviewed the actor-director, flirted for a while and eventually got married on the 31st of March 1996.
Their marriage saw to the birth of a daughter they named Morgan Eastwood before it packed up in 2014 after Dina filed for a divorce the previous year. The reporter moved on quite quickly and got married to a basketball coach named Scott Fisher. The same can’t be said for the director. He started dating Christina Sandera, an American restaurant hostess in 2014 but nothing serious came out of the relationship.
Before Dina, Eastwood was married to Maggie Johnson. While they were married, Clint openly kept a relationship with other women and it is believed that this hugely contributed to their divorce. They got married in 1985, gave birth to Alison and Kyle, and parted in 1984.
Clint Eastwood had Sondra Locke and Frances Fisher as domestic partners respectively between 1975 to 1989 and 1990 to 1995. Other women he dated include Erica Tomlinson-Fisher, Dani Crayne, Sônia Braga, Jane Cameron, Rebecca Perle, Barbra Streisand, Barbara Minty, Jamie Rose, Cathy Reghin, Jo Ann Harris, Gael Greene, Jean Seberg, and many, many, other women.
