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.

Clint Eastwood turned 82 today and could probably beat me senseless.
