Clint Eastwood is pleased he waited until he was older to have children – because he was too driven by his hormones when he was younger.
The now 79-year-old actor was in his mid-30s when he started his family and believes it was the perfect moment because his lifestyle had calmed down.
The ‘Gran Torino’ star who is father, to 12-year-old daughter Morgan, at the age of 66 told the American edition of GQ magazine: “I’m a loyal citizen to the family. And that wasn’t necessarily a given thing. That was acquired. I think when you’re younger, you’re driven by a lot of hormonal effects. It’s like Everest, ‘Because it’s there.’ There’s a lot of people who learn a lot faster than me, that’s for sure.”
Eastwood, who has six children with four different women is one of Hollywood’s most revered actors and directors and as he approaches his 80s the actor is proud of his legacy and life. Speaking about his own mortality, the five-time Oscar winner added: “I’m not one of these guys who wants to check out early. But when you check out, it’s when you’re supposed to check out. I take care of myself. I like working. That’s when I’m feeling my best.”
