Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

With the iconic last name of Eastwood, great expectations abounded for the daughter of a Hollywood legend. Like her famous father, actor-writer-director and former politician Clint Eastwood, Alison Eastwood aimed to deliver the family-honed tradition of excelling as a triple threat. Inspired to perform at an early age, she appeared with her father in the 1984 thriller "Tightrope," before moving on to tackle numerous significant other movie roles including in "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" (1997). Although most recognized for appearing with her father in the crime thriller "Absolute Power" (1997), she made notable performances in "Breakfast of Champions" (1999) and "Poolhall Junkies" (2002). Often referred to as a modern-day Jean Harlow, complete with curves and a come-hither gaze, Alison Eastwood could have coasted on her beauty and her lineage all the way to the bank, but instead the actress continuously strove to better herself, including a stint modeling in Paris, directing films, and creating a fashion line and a production company - all successful efforts that put to rest any accusations of nepotism-based success without basis.

Notes

She launched a clothing line called Eastwood Ranch in 2001.

"A former roommate and I used to watch old films together, and I gradually started reading about her. Jean Harlow had a tragic life, and for some reason I felt close to it. She was tortured, and I think I am in a lot of ways. As much as I might have put that pain aside, I'm going to have to find it again within myself when I play her, and that's not going to be easy, because it's a hard place to go." --Alison Eastwood in Interview, December 1997.
