Personal Quote:

I've always had the ability to say to the audience, watch this if you like, and if you don't, take a hike. See more »

Trivia:

As a director, he has always refused to test screen his films before their release. See more »

Trademark:

Known on-set as a director for filming very few takes and having an easy shooting schedule. Tim Robbins once said that when working on Mystic River (2003), Eastwood would usually ask for only one take, or two "if you were lucky", and that a day of filming would consist of starting "no earlier than 9 a.m. and you leave, usually, after lunch."
