"Maybe being an introvert gives me, by sheer accident, a certin screen presence, a mystique."---Eastwood on his screen persona quoted in The New York Times, November 21, 1993.
He was named Harvard's Hasty Pudding Man of the Year in 1991.
Eastwood was sued by former lover Sondra Locke in 1994 for fraud and contractual interference stemming from what she claimed was a bogus production deal made with Warner Bros in return for her declining to pursue a palimony case against Eastwood. In 1996, the matter went to trial, but Eastwood settled out of court for an undisclosed amount of money.
While speaking at the 92nd Street Y in NYC, Eastwood was reported to have said: "When I was doing 'The Bridges of Madison County', I said to myself 'This romantic stuff is really tough. I can't wait to get back to shooting and killing.'"---From Daily News, November 15, 1996.
"What? My modern, dysfunctional family? [Laughs.] Life is no great plan. Mine is career-driven and fate-driven. I was in a job that took me around the world. I wasn't always the good guy I could have been. But I haven't run away from members of my family, either. I'm a very integral part of their lives. Dina is wonderful with my ex-wife and the others from my past relationships. She's brought them all together. My ex-wife and I are still business investors, and when she needs something, Dina and I are the first ones there. So I'm blessed."---Clint Eastwood on how some might not approve of his personal life to USA Weekend, January 25, 2004.
