Being a veteran actor and an iconic director, Clint Eastwood has created some classic movies even in his later years. Being 93 years of age, the actor believes in realism in his movies. Portraying emotions perfectly is what Eastwood wants to witness and for that, the director has gone to some pretty extreme lengths.


Being an actor in the 80s and 90s, Eastwood has had his fair share of horseriding. The actor picked up the reins once again at the age of 91 when he wanted to shoot a scene for Cry Macho! The actor reportedly climbed the horse while the wrangler was worried for the old actor.

The actor had last ridden a horse back in 1992 when he starred in Unforgiven. With almost 3 decades past, Eastwood was ready to ride a horse again for his 2021 movie. With Eastwood serving as both director and the lead actor, he recalled the time he got up on the horse and the wrangler (the person in charge of the horse) was worried sick.

“The wrangler was worried. She was saying, ‘Be careful, be careful now.’ She was scared I’d end up on my rear end. But if you treat the horse like a buddy, he’ll take care of you.”

With the actor being of veteran status, Clint Eastwood often remembers his father and the advice that he gave him when the actor was young. Stating that his father warned him about the acting business, Eastwood stated that it was worth a try after all.

The Dirty Harry actor did become a master in his field after having decades’ worth of experience in Hollywood. During his career’s beginning, however, he decided to drop out of the L.A. City College to train to become an actor. Often remembering his father, the Sully director recalled the conversation he had with him and how his father warned him about acting.


“I remember when I told my father I was dropping out of L.A. City College to train to be an actor at Universal with a six-month option. He said, ‘Don’t get too wrapped up in that, it could be really disappointing.’ I said, ‘I think it’s worth a try.’ But I always remember it could have gone the other way.”

Cry Macho received an average rating of 5.7/10 on IMDB and 58% on Rotten Tomatoes. The Clint Eastwood starrer is currently available to stream on Max in the U.S.
