Clint Eastwood Turns 82: A Living Icon

[ Life]

Actor/director Clint Eastwood turns 82 today, and in true gravel-voiced badass form, he won’t even acknowledge it.

Eastwood’s wife, Dina–who has a new reality show on E! called “Mrs. Eastwood & Company”–says her husband doesn’t “do” holidays or birthdays and hates being given gifts.

“..If you don’t give him a gift he gives you a big kiss and says, ‘Thank you so much for not giving me a gift,” she said.

Well we don’t have to send him gifts, but we can still celebrate the iconic actor by taking a look back at some of his best movie quotes.

He may not be getting too many gifts today, but fans are still wishing him well via Twitter.

Clint Eastwood turns 82 today. Forget the glittering career for a second; his name is an anagram of “Old West Action.”

Wait a minute. Clint Eastwood and Walt Whitman were born on the same day? How is May 31 not a national holiday? Get on this, America!

Even though I love my toy boys, it’s Clint Eastwood’s birthday today, and if he wants a bit of Welsh, I’m available.

    Happy Birthday, Clint! If you don’t want a gift, though, would you give your fans a little something? Pull that plug on that terrible reality show. You may not be in it, but it reflects badly on you! Nobody wants to see the Eastwood name turned to reality show trash.

    • Norma Gonzales

      Totally agree! I’m really disappointed at Mrs. Eastwood for allowing herself, her children, and of course, Mr. Eastwood (although he is not physically in the show) to expose their private lives on TV. I thought Mr. Eastwood is more of a private person off screen.

    • http://yahoo.com Norma Gonzales

      Totally agree… I’m disappointed at Mrs. Eastwood for exposing so much of their private lives on a show like the reality TV! That’s so below the high standard that we have placed Mr. Eastwood as an actor, director, and writer.

    As a young girl growing up in the Caribbean i admired and loved every movie Clint made or i should say those that i saw. You see i am from a very small Island in the Caribbean St.Kitts no known to many . We do have a Tourism Office based in New York . I even named my grandson after the beloved Clint. Have a HAPPY BIRTHDAY CLINT and may you live to see and enjoy many many more.

    Thought I was the only one who disliked the reality show. Watched it once and was appalled. Show some dignity in “old” age. Put the wraps on the trash.

    My father was my best friend. We had many things in common but the 3 most important were drinking coffee, drinking beer, and watching Eastwood. I lost him about 8 years ago, when I was 24. I’m 33 now and you, sir, have been my favorite actor since I was 12. It’s been a pleasure watching your movies and now every time one of them come on, I feel a little closer to my Daddy. Happy Birthday, Clint.

  • Benjina Cloutier
