Edit - Clint Eastwood is NOT dead!

http://www.cnn-globalnews.com/2017/06/18/clint-eastwood-found-dead-of-apparent-heart-attack/

Damn it, it sucks getting old. I have seen all of his films and love his directing and composing. We just lost another great one today!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yup, even the best of us get sucked in by apparently real but is in fact 'fake news'. Sorry guys, my source for this is someone I typically trust. I know he is old and would not be surprised if he had died, so I did not do the due deligence to confirm if this story was true.

Thanks to y'all who started the process of investigating it.

2. May the Lord embrace him for all eternity,

He was surely one of the greatest actors around, Sad Day.

3. Damn, I'm gonna miss him

I watched him and his films all my life. When I lived in Monterey County, CA he was the Mayor of Carmel. I'd met his ex-wife, Dina, when she was a news anchor on local TV. He was a huge personality.

5. That is terrible news, indeed.

An actual icon in the industry and well grounded individual.
What a shame to lose him

8. Are we sure this is a legit story?

Can't find anything on any of the major new sites. Also, the Tom Hanks tweet shown in the article doesn't seem to exist.

14. EDIT: This is pure BS. If the great Clint Eastwood was really dead, it would be frontpage news....

...everywhere. I can't find a single item about it anywhere.

Don't be a jagoff. Please delete this fake horseshit.

17. Clint is alive and well and is currently in Jordan directing a new movie

He should have won an Oscar for best actor for Gran Torino.

In true tradition of every vote counts, most of Hollywood ASSUMED he had the votes in the system of voting that year (where they give more points to #1 on the list of nominees, and since every ASSUMED he would
be nominted, they voted for someone else. So he wasn't nominated and most likely would have won that
year.

Gran Torino was a great film.
Eastwood, who long ago has realized guns are not the answer, won the war in what originally was going
to be a Harry movie, but for some legal reasons, wasn't so it was a standalone, though most believe
he was playing an older, wiser Harry C.

and proved brains would win the war he was fighting in that movie, for the friends he belatedly made
and not gunfire.
(which was also the message of Unforgiven too).

One of my favorite directors and like with Susan Sarandon, I can separate politics from acting and watch
each without having their politics ruin it
(Though in Clint's case, it is quite mixed, much like Merle Haggard but Clint treats women in his past personal life horrible and is quite vindictive)

And I love how Mitt Romney was prevented from prime-time acceptance by Clint's very funny comedy bit
(the kind Elaine May or Bob Newhart used to do) at the Republican convention.
Showed how incompetent Mitt Romney was that he could not even CEO his own convention correctly.

again, glad that Clint is alive and well and currently in Jordan filming

BTW- I thought Clint should have played Sully. The two look alike, though some might have said Clint
was too old.

and before Gran Torino, my other favorites of Clint's are Broncho Billy and Honkeytonk Man
along with all the others.
Best scenic director since the legendary directors in the 30s and 40s.
And the fastest shooting director productions in the west (east south and north)
He shoots, and does very few retakes.
He lets it ride smooth and easy and does it well.

20. Glad he's still among the living.

I don't agree with his politics, but he his unquestionably a master director. Hope he has at least a couple of more movies planned.
