** 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.



* {{Twitter}}: His "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"]].

'''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.

** [[invoked]] A well-known conservative in Hollywood, Clint's views skew closer to a classical libertarian than most suspect. He is generally anti-war and a supporter of Gay Marriage and an animal lover.

* FriendToAllLivingThings: A really badass example. Clint is famous for helping out local animal rescue projects in his area of California. His own ranch is filled with various animals that he and his wife Dina have adopted. Anytime he does an interview and ends up talking about his pets it ends up being a huge CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
