Clint Eastwood, 91, Refuses To Let Age Stop Him From Being The Ultimate Macho Man

Getting older is a part of life, whether we want to face it or not. Some people approach their birthdays with all the vigor and spunk as a 21-year-old, with others prefer to bury their heads in the sand and quite happily enjoy being 49 for 10 consecutive years.

I'm all for the belief that every year is a blessing, especially when it comes to celebrities I love, like the incomparable Clint Eastwood, who is refusing to let his age slow him down.

It's not an exaggeration to say that everyone and their brother knows who Clint Eastwood is.

The legendary actor, director, and producer has been gracing our screens as a certifiable badass since the 1950s.

With films like Unforgiven, Every Which Way but Loose, Hang 'Em High and Million Dollar Baby, there's a Clint film for everyone to enjoy.

Now, at 91-years-old, Clint is determined to prove age is just a number.

In a new interview with the Los Angeles Times the actor shared details from his latest film project, Cry Macho where he both stars and directs.

When asked if there's a difference between now and the first time he directed and starred in a film 50 years ago (Play Misty For Me) he shrugged.

"I never think about it,” he said.

"If I’m not the same guy, I don’t want to know anything about it. I might not like the new guy. I might think, ‘What am I doing with this idiot?'"

In true Clint fashion, Cry Macho features plenty of action, including the actor throwing a punch, recalling "It might not be as good as I’ve thrown in the past but it was fun to do it.

The film also involved the actor getting back on a horse for the first time in three decades.

"The wrangler was worried," he recalled. "She was saying, 'Be careful, be careful now.’ She was scared I’d end up on my rear end. But if you treat the horse like a buddy, he’ll take care of you.'"

As far as his age goes, Clint doesn't care that he isn't the same man he was 70 years ago.

"I don’t look like I did at 20, so what?" he said. "That just means there are more interesting guys you can play."

I love his take on his amazing career and life. Way to go, Mr. Eastwood!
