The scorching Texas sun is merciless, but Clint Eastwood isn't complaining, not as long as it remains unobscured by the bruised-looking clouds drifting ominously nearby. In the middle of a rolling field a few minutes out of Austin, beneath a picturesquely crooked tree that suggests Mother Nature is one terrific art director, Eastwood is focused on a fake-bloodied Kevin Costner, who's half-sitting, half-reclining against the trunk. Costner is supposed to appear gut-shot and has been generously daubed with enough sticky liquid to make a visitor wonder if George Romero, not Eastwood, is the director in charge.

At 83 years old, Clint Eastwood is still playing the hero, even when he's not on in front of the camera. At a volunteer party Wednesday at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Eastwood, who has played in the event and now serves as the chairman of the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, saved the life of tournament director Steve John by performing the Heimlich manuever. "I was drinking water and eating these little appetizers, threw down a piece of cheese and it just didn't work," John said, according to the Associated Press.

Movie star Clint Eastwood ruined the career of his former girlfriend, actress Sondra Locke, by getting her a movie development deal in return for calling off a palimony suit, and then using his influence to block her from actually making any films, Locke's attorney contended Wednesday. "This deal with Warner Bros. was a sham.

Clint Eastwood came to the rescue on the eve of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, performing the Heimlich maneuver on the event's chief executive at a dinner to honor volunteers. “I saw that look in his eyes and saw that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their eyes,” Eastwood told the Carmel Pine Cone , the local newspaper. The event's director, Steve John, was snacking on hors d'oeuvres Wednesday night when a piece of cheese got stuck in his throat, setting the stage for Eastwood's rescue.

Something has happened to Clint Eastwood. No, not the envisaging of furniture as possessing of human thought and feeling. Not just that, anyway. Something has happened to how we see him. As a director, Eastwood hasn't been galvanizing us for a while. “Invictus,” “Hereafter,” “J. Edgar” - these are movies that haven't exactly had many of us running to theaters. But we've still wanted to watch him. Coming into this weekend, Eastwood had starred in two movies ("Million Dollar Baby" and "Gran Torino")

Karl Rove claims Clint Eastwood's Super Bowl ad for Chrysler was a devious pitch to promote the Obama reelection campaign. Apparently the bulb-headed Pillsbury Doughboy of the political right thinks he's man enough to pick a fight with America's most virile octogenarian. Go ahead, Karl, make his day. In the sweepstakes for most memorable advertisement from Sunday's Super Bowl game, the Eastwood halftime ad was the clear winner. Gritty, moody, yet uplifting, the ad interspersed images of beleaguered but resilient Americans with shots of Eastwood walking toward the camera along a shadowy passageway.

Clint Eastwood had a "make my day" attitude about Hollywood agents, including his own representative, Leonard Hirshan. "If he didn't return a call, he would have been history!" the screen tough guy said this week. But then Eastwood laughed and said, sadly, "I'm just joking. Lenny always returned a call. " Hirshan was Eastwood's agent for more than 50 years, perhaps a record in Hollywood for a major star. It started when Hirshan was already an established agent with the all-powerful William Morris Agency, where over the years he represented stars such as Jack Lemmon, Angela Lansbury, Walter Matthau and Sophia Loren, and also negotiated film deals for the likes of Elvis Presley.

A life-size cutout of Clint Eastwood in cowboy garb won't be the only likeness of a western star to become Glendale city property. In a unanimous vote Tuesday, the City Council approved accepting the donation of five western-inspired art pieces, including the one of Eastwood, from a Los Angeles artist who had originally secretly placed some of the cutouts in the hills above Glendale. "This is the kind of organic art that I really respond to," said Councilwoman Laura Friedman.

A cutout of Clint Eastwood dressed as a cowboy that began as a mysterious art piece looking out over Glendale's hillsides is one step closer to becoming official property of the city. After the actor's likeness was destroyed three times, the artist behind the figure that has sparked interest among hikers in the hills and commuters along the Glendale Freeway decided it might be best if he find a new home for the cutout. That's when City Hall came into the picture. City officials offered to give the cutout an official home after a Los Angeles Times columnist wrote about the multiple acts of vandalism it had sustained, and now the Arts & Culture Commission has recommended that the City Council approve making it a city art piece.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Clint Eastwood confirmed in an interview with his hometown newspaper that he was winging it last week when - unscripted and unvetted - he addressed the Republican National Convention. The resulting loss for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney didn't stem from what Eastwood said (an American movie icon chatting with an empty chair worked for some people), but from what the Republican presidential hopeful gave up. Those 12 minutes of prime-time television, with an audience of 30 million people, will not be coming back, at least not too many times.

In watching Marc Forster's new action drama "World War Z," it's hard not to be struck by how well Brad Pitt is aging. Yes, there's the slightest of silver highlighting his long locks, and the added distinction those little lines are etching on his face, and that his body somehow defies the gravitational pull - but they're not the reason for my fascination. It's the ironic way the zombie thriller - a cleverly high-minded horror hoot - shows how carefully the actor is working his way through the treacherous terrain of the middle-aged movie star.

Vanessa Hudgens, Julianne Hough, Emma Roberts and Clint Eastwood were just a few of the celebrities who took a break from the Coachella Music and Arts Festival to visit the Armani Exchange Neon Carnival on Saturday night. For the last four years, the brand has hosted a giant carnival in the middle of the desert at the Tradition Aviation Airport Hangar just 15 minutes from the Empire Polo Club. It's arguably one of the biggest events surrounding the festival and this year was no different.
