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 offers you a part in one of his movies, accept. If he offers you dinner, maybe think it over.

He has also directed ''Film/{{Invictus}}'', a film about the end of TheApartheidEra in UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica and ''Film/{{Hereafter}}'', an ensemble drama about people who have been touched by death. His latest film was 2012's ''Film/TroubleWithTheCurve'', where he plays an aging baseball scout who goes on one last recruiting trip with his daughter (AmyAdams), despite the fact that he is going blind. The film was the directoral debut of Eastwood's long-time producer Robert Lorenz.

** Despite the popularity of his films Eastwood was often criticized early in his career by critics for being too understated. There's actually a bit of a BaseBreaker between critics and fans as to whether Eastwood was a wooden actor who simply got lucky or if he was actually a master of a more understated form of acting, given his penchant for playing cold, hard boiled, emotionally unavailable men (which is what his career was pretty much built on for the longest time).

** Most of the other iconic phrases associated with Clint (such as "Go ahead, make my day") were one-offs (as opposed to, say, Arnold's "I'll be back.")



* RenaissanceMan: In addition to acting and directing, Clint also is a licensed pilot, a rancher (and his ranch is filled with pets that he and his wife have adopted from animal rescue missions), and a quite talented musician. He's also a former lifeguard.

* CopiouslyCreditedCreator: In a number of his films, he serves as the producer-director-star-composer, though usually not all four at once.



* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: On screen, he's intimdating, rude and usually amoral with a bad temper. Offscreen, he's known to be very friendly and laidback and a pleasure to work with.



* NoStuntDouble: Did his own stunts, and provides the trope's page quote.
* PlayingAgainstType: One of his strangest roles is ''The Witches'', an Italian anthology film starring Silvana Mangano. He plays a dull businessman whose wife (Mangano) longs for escape from their routine life; it even includes a send-up of his Man With No Name persona. Eastwood reportedly took the role for a factory-made Ferrari and the chance to work with director Vittorio De Sica.

'''Clinton "Clint" Eastwood, Jr.''' (born May 31, 1930) is an American actor director, producer, singer, songwriter, former mayor of Carmel, CA and designer of his own line of golf-clothing. He's most famous for portraying tough-as-nails, somewhat reactionary gunslingers who speak very little, and make each word (and bullet) count. The two most famous roles of this kind are ''Film/DirtyHarry'' and the [[Film/DollarsTrilogy Man With No Name]] in the Creator/SergioLeone movies. He is also widely cited as being the only western actor to win a quick-draw contest.
