Clint Eastwood loves his ”dysfunctional family”December 6th, 2008 - 1:48 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, December 6 (ANI): Clint Eastwood dotes on his dysfunctional family despite becoming the father of his seventh child at the age of 66.
The actor-director, whose career has spanned more than 50 years in the movie industry, has been married twice and has seven children with four different women.
The Oscar-winner, who tied the knot with journalist Dina Ruiz in 1996, however, revealed that he had grown accustomed to his atypical love life, reports China Daily.
He said: “I love my dysfunctional family. Dina fell pregnant on our honeymoon. After a few weeks, she said she felt a little nausea.
She asked me to stop at a gas station so she could buy one of those sticks. She came back and said, ”We”re pregnant.” At least nobody stood there with a shotgun when we got married!”
The 78-year-old veteran further told Parade magazine that he was from drawing his retirement plans unlike his similarly aged Hollywood counterparts.
He said: “I just ran into a guy a little younger than me. He says, ”I”m going to retire.” I say, ”Wait for me. Keep going.” Everybody in my generation, once you get in the seventh decade, they go, ”Well, what the hell. I”m on bonus time!” But no, I would never want to give it up. Never would.” (ANI)
