* {{Twitter}}: His bizarre "conversation" with an empty chair representing UsefulNotes/BarackObama at the 2012 Republican convention achieved internet-meme status immediately with the creation of [[http://twitter.com/InvisibleObama Invisible Obama]] and the President himself tweeting [[http://twitter.com/BarackObama/status/241392153148915712 "This seat's taken"]].

->''Westerns. A period gone by, the pioneer, the loner operating by himself, without benefit of society. It usually has something to do with some sort of vengeance; he takes care of the vengeance himself, doesn't call the police. Like Robin Hood. It's the last masculine frontier. Romantic myth. I guess, though it's hard to think about anything romantic today. In a Western you can think, Jesus, there was a time when man was alone, on horseback, out there where man hasn't spoiled the land yet.''

In his younger days, he was very much TheCasanova, so much so that he not only had mistresses but reportedly cheated on his mistresses with other mistresses. (''Yo dawg, I heard you like mistresses...'') Seriously, just look at his Wikipedia entry. According to one of his friends and biographers, Eastwood "seemed to get a bang out of this kinkier side to himself and rarely concealed it, often gloated about it." One person who wasn't laughing was actress Sondra Locke (she played a few of his on-screen love interests) with whom he carried on an extramarital affair in mid-70s. Locke accused Eastwood of using his star status to bury her career after their breakup. Eastwood and Warner Brothers both eventually settled out of court. Suffice to say, if Clint offer you a part in one of his movies, accept. If he offers you dinner, maybe think it over.

Added namespaces.
Invented and popularized the OneLiner (like the PreAssKickingOneLiner, PreMortemOneLiner, or just the generic [[BadassBoast "I'm so badass"]]-OneLiner). His Influence on the movie industry was such that without him (or his ''Dirty Harry'' library, to be more specific) TheEighties would have seen about a mere fourth of the action movies it actually ''did'' see. Aside from Westerns (which his cop movies [[CowboyCop pretty much are]]) he also played in an occasional war movie of the TrappedBehindEnemyLines kind. (''KellysHeroes'', ''WhereEaglesDare''). He was also in the movie of ''{{Film/Firefox}}'', resulting in the sequel novel being dedicated to him. If you want a break from Clint's ever-expanding body count, but can't stand ''Bridges of Madison County'', you should give ''Film/PaintYourWagon'' a try. Clint Eastwood walking through a forest singing "'''I talk to the trees,''' but they '''''don't listen to me'''''" will do the trick.
