Clint Eastwood Slams Political Correctness At Cannes Film Festival

Clint Eastwood, who is 86, said Dirty Harry would not be produced today due to political correctness.

Although Eastwood did not touch on current political events, he did talk about political correctness while talking about one of his most famous movies, Dirty Harry.

“A lot of people thought it was politically incorrect,” Eastwood said while talking about the movie. “That was at the beginning of the era that we’re in now, where everybody thinks everyone’s politically correct. We’re killing ourselves by doing that. We’ve lost our sense of humor.”

“If you have good luck with your instincts, you might as well trust them,’ he said. ‘It’s an emotional art form. It’s not an intellectual art form at all.”

This isn’t the first time Eastwood has talked about political correctness.

“We’re really in a pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells, ” he said in the past. “We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff.”

Clint Eastwood to Direct Film on Heroes Who Stopped Train Attack in Paris

If we learned anything from American Sniper, we know Eastwood does not care about being politically correct. We’re looking forward to another inspiring telling of American heroism.

Hollywood Director Clint Eastwood thrives on displaying patriotism on the big screen. His 2014 hit American Sniper, which told the story of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who is credited with the most kills of any U.S. sniper, earned several Oscar nominations.

Eastwood is now prepared to direct a film about another crop of courageous Americans: the three young men who stopped a terror attack on a train in Paris, France. On August 21, 2015, friends Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, and Spencer Stone jumped into action to subdue a terrorist who was armed with an AK-47. The heroes expounded on their quick thinking in the book “15:17 To Paris: The True Story Of A Terrorist, A Train, And Three American Heroes.” Thanks to Eastwood it will now be turned into a movie.

Skarlatos and his buddies posted the following photo on Instagram with the famed director, along with a touching message.

Scott Eastwood: ‘There Are No Handouts’ in His Famous Family

The son of Clint Eastwood says, ‘Sometimes I still feel like the uncool kid in Hollywood … and that’s fine’

Scott Eastwood wants the world to know that it’s not always easy being the son of an iconic actor while trying to make it in Hollywood.

“To be honest, sometimes I still feel like the uncool kid in Hollywood, who they don’t take seriously,” said the 31-year-old son of Clint Eastwood to Modern Luxury for its April 2017 issue. “It’s a constant battle. But I like to be in the fight. If Scott Eastwood ain’t even on their radar, that’s fine. Let’s audition.”

Scott did admit that it was the 86-year-old who inspired him to pursue acting. And when asked if Clint would ever consider a father-and-son project, Scott revealed it was a possibility.

“I’ve been slipping my dad scripts; the problem is, he’s told just about every story, so you have to find something new. But he’s excited,” he explained.

It also helps that the two are similar in how they approach their careers.

“I think we see the world in the same way, probably because that’s how he taught me to see it,” said Scott. “It’s straightforward. Have integrity. When you say you’re going to do something, be there. Don’t [screw] people over. Do the right thing. Be a man. And don’t be such a whiny little brat! He thinks there are a lot of those out there. He was born during the Great Depression, so there was no room for that; his dad struggled to feed the family when he was a kid, and that’s always stayed with him.”

‘Clint Eastwood’ Twitter account suspended after praising Trump

“It’s official – voicing support for ‘Our’ President elect is now ‘hate speech’” wrote one user. “Censorship and authoritarism [sic] show their claws on Twitter again,” added another.

The good, the bad and the politically correct.

Twitter had Clint Eastwood fans up in arms on Thursday for suspending an account purportedly belonging to the actor following a pro-Trump tweet.

“Thank you America, I don’t have long left to live but now I know the last few years will be great, I can’t thank you enough #PresidentTrump,” tweeted @EastwoodUSA, just hours after the race was called for The Donald.

The social media site apparently wasn’t a fan of the tweet, and chose to suspend the account a short time after — sparking cries of censorship throughout the night.

Clint Eastwood: Donald Trump Challenging ‘Kiss-Ass Generation’

Actor-director Clint Eastwood believes that Donald Trump is benefitting from a trend in American culture by saying what he believes, despite criticism from all sides.

“He’s onto something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up,” Clint Eastwood said in an interview with Esquire. “That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells.”

Eastwood specifically cited Trump’s comments criticizing a judge who was born to Mexican parents, but indicated he was tired of the media fueled controversy

“He’s said a lot of dumb things. So have all of them. Both sides,” he said “But everybody —the press and everybody’s going, ‘Oh, well, that’s racist,’ and they’re making a big hoodoo out of it. Just fucking get over it. It’s a sad time in history.”

Eastwood said that he hadn’t spoken to Trump about an endorsement, and hadn’t endorsed anyone for president. He clarified that he didn’t agree with everything that Trump said, but indicated that it was refreshing to see an unfiltered politician.

“He’s just saying what’s on his mind and sometimes it’s not so good,” he said. “And sometimes it’s … I mean, I can understand where he’s coming from, but I don’t always agree with it.”
