What do we want? More pictures of Scott Eastwood! When do we want them? Now! Yesterday, Town & Country wisely released more images from their photoshoot with Clint Eastwood’s breathtakingly hunky 27-year-old son. Why isn’t this guy an Calvin Klein/Abercrombie + Fitch model? How can one man be so hot?
Check out a few more pics of Scott after the jump: Keep reading »
Take a good look at this face. Recognize it? Talk about being a chip off the ol’ block. Stick a cigar in his mouth and Scott Eastwood is the spitting image of his dad Clint. Go ahead and make my day, Scott. I’d love to go for a ride in your Gran Torino. I’ll be your million dollar baby or your dirty harry, you just say which. Okay, enough with the Clint Eastwood movie puns. Scott, 27, is featured in the latest issue of Town & Country modeling watches or something, and tells the mag he wants to follow in his father’s footsteps (he’s already been in a few of his movies) as a “no bullshit leading man.” Um, yes please.

Hollywood is where nepotism thrives, especially for the sexy sons of the elite royalty. Kirk and Michael (Douglas). Martin and Charlie (Sheen). Donald and Kiefer (Sutherland). Clint and Scott (Eastwood). But who is among the next generation of celebrity spawn breaking into the biz and following in their famous kin’s footsteps? I’ve unearthed 11 other hotties with Hollywood blood worth watching…
The Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California, draws in celebrities from far and wide. But perhaps the most unexpected celebrity attendee, um, ever? Clint Eastwood, who attended the music festival with daughter Francesca. No word on whether he complained about the racket or brought along his favorite “chair.” [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
‘Tis the season for celebrity political endorsements, and just yesterday comes another one — this time from Kelly Clarkson. Kelly says that while she considers herself a Republican, she can’t abide by Mitt Romney’s anti-gay marriage stance, and has decided to support Obama. Additionally, she said, “I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again … I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married.”
Additionally, she voiced concern over women’s rights issues. “I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the ’50s,” she said.
Last year, Clarkson voiced her support for Ron Paul, but then retracted it after it was found that Paul was linked to several racist and homophobic pamphlets. “I am really sorry if I have offended anyone. Obviously that was not my intent. I do not support racism. I support gay rights, straight rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights,” she said.

Throwing his feet up on the coffee table isn’t the only thing Clint Eastwood is totally relaxed about. During his interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Eastwood shared his views on gay marriage and his libertarian beliefs: “Socially, [they believe to] leave everyone alone, but [they] believe in fiscal responsibility and government staying out of your life.” DeGeneres then pressed Eastwood — who famously spoke to an empty chair at the Republican National Convention earlier this month — about his stance on gay marriage, noting that he had previously said he had no problem with it. Eastwood’s response was again, “Leave everyone alone!”

Democratic activists are trying to draft a convention speaker even older than surprise Republican speaker Clint Eastwood. A social media campaign has been launched to bring Betty White, the last surviving Golden Girl, to the Democratic National Convention this week, reports ABC. White, who endorsed Obama in May, turned 90 this year, and the president recorded a birthday message asking to see her long-form birth certificate. Read more…
I ask this not as a liberal, not as a woman, not as a person who thought “Gran Torino” was a piece of shit; I ask this as just a human being who, yeah, hasn’t had much sleep in the last few days — what the hell was that? Clint Eastwood’s speech at the Republican National Convention, I mean. Because, politics aside, 10+ minutes of Dirty Harry talking to an empty chair is straight up strange, right? Who approved this? I assume there was no dress rehearsal? I realize he’s an Academy Award winner, but maybe Mitt Romney’s big night is not the time for Clint Eastwood to practice ad libbing. Seriously, conservatives who walk among us, was that as awkward for you as it was for me, or did my bleeding heart just not get it?
I take issue with many women who carry Birkin bags (unless, I mean, you’re Jane Birkin), and I swear it’s not envy. Let’s admit that most anyone who totes a bag that cost upward of $10,000 (and probably closer to $20,000 or more) isn’t doing it for the love of the purse: it’s a love of the status symbol. Case closed! I love the shape and design of the celebrity and WASP favorite, but even if my income suddenly skyrocketed, I’d … probably pick a different bag. It’s just so obvious! A Birkin needs no introduction or explanation — it’s like the fashion version of a private jet, and can cost almost as much. Keep reading »
Who would have thought Dirty Harry would have such a soft spot for a wild animal as inconsequential as the squirrel? According to a truly heartwarming story of potentially dubious origins, Clint Eastwood’s best friend is a squirrel named Lola who lives near his office on the Paramount lot. A source says:
“Clint leaves the front door open whenever he’s inside working so Lola can come and go. He gets a kick out of watching her and always keeps a bag of shelled peanuts on the bottom shelf of a bookcase in case she gets hungry. Clint would be so upset if Lola disappeared. He enjoys her company.”
How beautiful! Normally, to quote Carrie Bradshaw (ugh, I’m sorry), I consider squirrels to be rats with cuter outfits, but Clint’s ringing endorsement of the fluffy-tailed creature may have changed my mind. [Contact Music]
In honor of Clint and Lola’s love, here are 12 other celebs who are equally as obsessively attached to their pets.
“What we’re saying is that [J. Edgar Hoover] definitely had a relationship with [Clyde] Tolson that lasted for nearly 50 years. Neither of them married. They lived close to one another. They worked together every day. They vacationed together. And there was rumored to be more. There are definite insinuations of—well, I’m not going to get into where it goes, but … If I were a betting man, I actually don’t know what I would bet.”
—Leonardo DiCaprio talks to GQ magazine about his new movie “J. Edgar,” directed by Clint Eastwood. But even though DiCaprio spent months playing the infamous director of the FBI, who wore dresses to parties and supposedly had a relationship with the FBI’s associate director, Leo says he isn’t sure in the end if Hoover was gay. After the jump, hear what Eastwood thinks.
