Relive The Time Clint Eastwood Dashed A Young Actress’s Dreams With A Hilarious Tongue-Lashing, As Told By Jay Mohr
Clint Eastwood is an 86-year-old man. The badass actor turned badass director has made a household name of himself by portraying tough characters in a series of Sergio Leone movie Westerns and the Dirty Harry franchise. He parlayed that into a a directorial career by earning Academy Award–winning films as Unforgiven, Mystic River and Million Dollar Baby.
He is older than the dinosaurs but his legend will outlive the earth, evident in a collection of unique, brash stories told by Hollywood elites that highlight Eastwood’s don’t-give-a-fuckness. Last night, I re-listened to Jay Mohr’s story about Clint Eastwood on his 2010 film Hereafter and I was in absolute hysterics. I’m not sure if that letter-passer ever received her Oscar, but I’d venture to guess it’s more likely that Clint Eastwood’s verbal tongue lashing still haunts her dream today.
