Clint Eastwood’s biographyClint Eastwood is a world-famous American actor, a multi-faceted personality: being for many years an icon of the «Western» genre, over time, he managed to prove himself as a brilliant director, an enterprising producer, a talented composer, and screenwriter.
Early yearsClinton Eastwood Jr. was born on 31 May 1930 in San Francisco, California in an ordinary working-class family. The future actor’s father Clinton Eastwood Sr. was a worker in a steelmaking plant, his mother Margaret Ruth Eastwood (Runner) was an engineer at the same plant.
The boy's childhood years fell on the Great Depression, which especially tormented industrial cities. Therefore, Clint's parents often changed places of residence, trying to find a stable job. The family stayed for a longer period in Piedmont, California, and the boy was able to normally attend school and even participate in spectacle staging with his classmates. He graduated from school already in Oakland in 1948.
Career: Star of Westerns and DirectorAt the earl of his career, Clint Eastwood worked in crowd scenes, then after captious casting Universal Studios signed a contract with him with a meager payment of $75 per week. The actor played in secondary scenes in the low-budget films – «Revenge of the Creature» (1955), «Francis in the Navy» (1955), «Tarantula» (1955), «Away All Boats» (1956)
Clint`s main character for many years- a short-spoken guy with a gloomy squint of eyes and a multi-charged colt in his hand became his most in-demand role, and westerns with the actor were considered classic samples of the genre.Clint Eastwood’s second legendary role was the hero of the cycle of films «Dirty Harry» (1971-1988). The image of the severe policeman Harry Callahan, who mercilessly cracked down on criminals, without adhering to the law, determined the idea of pictures in this direction for many years to come.
Hollywood’s main cowboy Eastwood starred in 80 films throughout his creative career and produced another 30.
Clint Eastwood’s personal lifeIn 1953, Clint officially registered his first marriage with actress Maggie Johnson. Soon they had two children - son Kyle (1968) and daughter Alison (1972), but even they did not prevent the couple from divorcing.
Then he spent 3 years with stewardess Jacelyn Reeves. He left her with two children – son Scott (1986) and daughter Kathryn (1988). She called him the cruelest and evil person in revenge in the press.
After receiving the money, Sondra published memoirs with such intimate revelations that Eastwood did not spare money to buy out all the rights to her book. However, that story didn’t teach the incorrigible «serial womanizer» - the nickname stuck to the legendary cowboy in Hollywood. And in the early '90s, Clint fell in love again: his choice was actress Frances Fisher. They had a daughter Francesca (1993), but even the child’s birth didn’t prevent the couple from separating in 1995. .
