Extra TV also spoke with the legend himself, prodding him to talk about his love for acting as well as filmmaking. When asked which role he preferred for himself, Eastwood said, “It depends. Sometimes you don't want to do both 'cause there's too much to do. Other times, it's fun.”
Eastwood further revealed that he has never planned a retirement because it is something that one cannot plan ahead. However, he is definitely enjoying himself at the moment so giving it all up is out of the question.
Meanwhile, People reported that Eastwood, who has seven children with multiple women, was also accompanied by his entire extended family comprising of his children, granddaughter, first wife, and girlfriend during the Los Angeles premiere of the movie.
