The 93-year-old celebrity makes little of his personal life, but he has had his share of relationships. He has seven children and has been married twice.
Eastwood, on the other hand, has just disclosed a story that connects him to one of his most well-known films and about which he has been mute for many years.San Francisco witnessed the birth of Hollywood’s longest-running movie star in 1930, amid the height of the Great Depression. He has an older sister.
Because of his father’s steel business profession, the family moved frequently.He was named Samson and weighed an incredible 11 pounds, 6 ounces when he was born. He eventually reached a height of 6 feet 4 inches.
After finishing high school, he moved to Seattle and worked as a lifeguard before joining the American Army in 1950.
However, many people are unaware that Eastwood, at the age of 21, was a passenger on a World War II navy jet that crashed in the Pacific.
“I was catching a free ride down from Seattle to Almeda,” Eastwood explained in an interview.
“It was stormy, and we went down in the Pacific off the coast of Point Reyes, California.” I ended myself in the water and began swimming a few miles towards the beach. “I remember thinking to myself, ‘Well, 21 is not as long as a person wants to live.'”
After swimming for hours through kelp beds in the Pacific, Eastwood reached land and ascended a hill to issue a distress call.
This knowledge came in handy when he was directing Tom Hanks’ biographical film Sully: Miracle on the Hudson in 2016.
The critically praised video chronicles US Airways Flight 1549’s 2009 emergency Hudson River landing, in which all 155 passengers and crew members were saved.
Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, who was later overridden by his superiors, made the split-second decision to land the plane in the frigid Hudson River in the film.
“I suppose if I’d been in a similar situation as the pilot, I’d have risked a water landing rather than go somewhere where there’s no runway,” Eastwood remarked in an interview with The Telegraph.
“Of course, Sully was familiar with the neighbourhood…He chose the ideal location…He was aware that someone would see them,” he continued.
Despite Sully’s incredible landing and the lives he saved, Eastwood was more intrigued by what happened next.
“Anyone who can negotiate problems without panicking, who can keep their wits about them when things go wrong, is someone of superior character and interesting to watch on film,” Eastwood stated.
“But the real conflict for me came later, when the investigative board questioned his decisions, despite the fact that he had saved so many lives.”
