Soon to be seen on the big screen in the dysfunctional family comedy/drama TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE, Academy Award winning director/actor CLINT EASTWOOD recently made global headlines with his slightly unconventional address at The Republican National Convention in support of MITT ROMNEY. Using much of his time on-stage to address an empty chair representing President BARACK OBAMA, EASTWOOD was roundly criticized for what many considered (at best) performance art worthy of a one-man show.
At this afternoon’s press conference to support TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE, EASTWOOD took a moment to talk about his speech and joked that he didn’t get the reaction he’d hoped for. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
Following up on the original statement, EASTWOOD admitted that, if he had it to do over, he’d probably state his case in a different way. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
