A Republican yahoo made a movie about a Navy SEAL during the Iraq Occupation, and apparently no one foresaw that it would be a total shitshow that would send this country into online hysterics. Clint Eastwood is a man who accused an invisible Obama, alighting upon an empty stool, of being “absolutely crazy” at the Republican National Convention in 2012. He is also a man who is a lauded filmmaker and universally loved icon, because if America loves anything as much as a war movie, it’s a geriatric western star and his emotionally exploitative directorial work. “American Sniper”is the culmination of the unquestioning American patriotism that soars as high as an eagle and stands as strong as the second amendment, tied in a pretty bow by the antiquated standards of Hollywood.

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?

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!”
