93-Year-Old Clint Eastwood Is All Smiles Seen For First Time In Years


Clint Eastwood is back to lead the star-studded cast in his upcoming movie, Juror No. 2. The acclaimed director— who took a two-year break from movie sets, appeared excited to be in the spotlight again as he posed for the camera in a gray puffer jacket and trousers.

The new movie is likely Clint’s last, although he may have more undisclosed projects lined up Juror No. 2 features film stars like Zoey Deutch, Kiefer Sutherland, Chris Messina, Nicholas Hoult, and Toni Collette to depict the story of a juror who realizes during a murder trial that his reckless driving cost the victim their life.

Why did Clint take a break?

Clint has been the director and producer behind several Hollywood hits, including Dirty Harry (1971), Escape from Alcatraz (1979), Sudden Impact (1983), In The Line of Fire (1993), True Crime (1999), Million Dollar Baby (2004), Letters from Iwo Jima (2006), Gran Torino (2008), and Changeling (2008). However, his unexpected withdrawal from the public raised concerns among fans in the last few years.


Clint’s health became a topic, which was addressed by an insider who also hinted at his plans to retire. The source called for calm, claiming that he has “always enjoyed great health and been vital and active despite his advancing age.”

“The fact that he hasn’t been around as much lately has a lot of people in Hollywood worried about him,” they said. “It’s hard to imagine him in anything other than fine form, but Father Time catches up to all of us.”

Clint’s looming retirement

While it is a pleasure to have Clint behind the cameras in Georgia, the source suggested Juror No. 2 would be the “swan song” preceding his final goodbye from Hollywood. The highly anticipated production was announced in April this year but got interrupted by the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) strikes in the summer.

The insider also shared that the 93-year-old believes the movie industry “has retired on him,” especially after his last movie, Cry Macho, flopped at the box office. “Some thought ‘Cry Macho’ was going to be his last film two years ago because he seemed frail even then, but the movie wasn’t well received, so Clint’s gathering up the troops one last time— and hoping for a blockbuster,” they said.
