Clint Eastwood Quits Acting

Posted: November 23rd, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Clint Eastwood Quits ActingSubmit Comment
Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood is retiring from acting, after a career spanning more than 50 years.

The 78-year-old had limited acting success in the 1950s, before shooting to fame in the 1960s with roles in hit Western movies such as "For a Few Dollars More" and "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly." He went on to star in 1971 classic "Dirty Harry" and four sequels as hard-edged police inspector Harry Callahan.

Eastwood extended his career in movies to directing - and has received Academy Awards for his work on "Unforgiven" and "Million Dollar Baby."

Eastwood has just finished starring in and directing "Gran Torino," a drama about a racist veteran of the Korean War - but now that is over, he is hanging up his acting hat for good.

He tells Britain's Sunday Express, "That will probably do it for me as far as acting is concerned. You always want to quit while you are ahead. You don't want to be like a fighter who stays too long in the ring until you're not performing at your best."

But the star is adamant he will keep sitting in the director's chair: "I've got no plans to stop making films."

It's all the vegetarianism. Not eating meat has turned him into a walking wax exhibit.

Eastwood is a talent that showed not be overlooked or pushed to the side. Always liked his work and he hasn't done wrong in some time. I hope he continues to direct as he has stated and occasionally re-thinks acting enough to come back for appropriate roles.
