Clint Eastwood at 94: Defying Age, Embracing Filmmaking (and Life)

The legendary actor and director shares his secrets to staying active, creative, and full of life.

Clint Eastwood, the iconic actor and director, is on the verge of turning 94 – and he's showing no signs of slowing down.

In a recent interview, Eastwood reveals his secret:

"I don't let the old man in. I keep myself busy. You have to stay active, alive, happy, strong, capable."

Eastwood isn't just talking about physical activity. He's rejecting the negative stereotypes associated with aging:

"I don't let in the old critic... full of rage and complaints, of lack of courage, which denies to itself that old age can be creative, decisive, full of light and purpose."

This mindset is evident in Eastwood's latest film, Cry Macho (2021), a testament to his enduring passion and creativity.
