While Clint Eastwood continues to be as busy as ever behind the camera, the actor/director hasn’t acted in a film since 2012’s “Trouble With the Curve”.
Does this mean he’s retired from acting? Not necessarily, as he explained during a Q&A session at the Cannes Film Festival, preceding a screening of some of his films in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of his Oscar-winning “Unforgiven”.
Asked if he could ever see himself acting in a film again, the 86-year-old Hollywood icon said he would revisit acting “someday,” reports Associated Press.
Meanwhile, a discussion of his then-controversial film “Dirty Harry” led Eastwood to open up about modern-day political correctness.
“A lot of people thought it was politically incorrect,” Eastwood said of the 1971 blockbuster. ″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 humour.”
Eastwood’s next film will be “The 15:17 to Paris,” chronicling how an attempted terrorist attack on a train heading from Paris to Brussels in 2015 was thwarted.
