Hall of Famer

Legend, yes. But Clint Eastwood’s not done yet

Indeed, Eastwood seems content, and with no new projects in development, he says he’s only interested in making films that ignite his passions as fully as the Iwo Jima saga. “When you’re younger and things first start happening to you—for me it was the 1960s—you say yes to a lot of things. Your agent says, ‘Do this, play in this picture because you’re in it with Richard Burton.’ Then someone asks Richard, ‘Why are you in the picture?’ And he says, ‘Well, because I’m in it with Clint.’ But why are we here? I did a lot of pictures like that—you could go through a whole list of them. People lean on you, and like all actors, you think every job’s going to be your last job. At that age, you don’t wait for the perfect thing that may or may not come along in 10 years. But now, if this is the last picture I do, that’s fine.”
