Clint Eastwood met his girlfriend in 2014, Christina Sandera, at the Mission Ranch Hotel, where she worked as a hostess.


After meeting at the “Mule” star’s hotel, Clint Eastwood and Christina Sandera began their romantic relationship that deepened over time. 

“He’s truly happy with her,” a source told Closer Weekly. “She’s fun, easygoing, and his kids like her too. She’s on an even keel like he is.”

Sandera first walked on the red carpet as Eastwood’s date to the Oscars in 2015, the same time their relationship was made public.

She later made it to another event with the actor a few months later, at the Ranch Foundation’s first annual “Fallen Garden Party.”


The following year, the former hostess had another public appearance with her partner as she accompanied him to the New York premiere night of “Sully.”

Sandera now lives in the movie star’s Carmel, California home, where he used to reside with his ex-wife Dina. She moved in a few years after his ex-wife moved out.

In 2015, shortly after the couple’s relationship began, Sandera’s ex-husband, Paul Wainscoat, came forward about his marriage with her for eleven months.

The legendary actor turned 91 years old on May 31 while celebrating his special day with his loved ones in Carmel. 

According to Wainscoat, his ex had a drinking problem and anger management issues that led her to physically hurting him.

Even before their marriage, Eastwood’s girlfriend showed signs of being abusive and was arrested for domestic battery after an incident with Wainscoat.

Sandera didn’t change after they tied the knot and remained physical at times, even throwing a Gatorade bottle to his head at one point.


He even said that Sandera woke up one night and punched him in the face because she was upset over her cat's death. Later, Wainscoat told the court that she was a violent alcoholic and a spendthrift gold-digger wife. On the other hand, Sandera denied hitting him but accepted that she was disturbing the peace.

Wainscoat reached his endpoint in 2003, after yet another domestic disturbance that involved the police. Sandera later said she had quit drinking alcohol and attended AA and anger management classes.

Unlike the other celebrities, Sandera likes to keep things private. She doesn't want to stay in the spotlight as her husband does. 

It was love at first sight for the couple when they met for the first time, but people got to know about their relationship when they made a public appearance during the Oscars. Sandera had moved into his house a few months before making things public.


Eastwood's beautiful blonde wife is on good terms with all eight of his children. She has also managed to keep him happy despite their 33-year age gap. 


Eastwood and Sandera's relationship has kept their fans wondering if they will ever tie the knot. It turns out that Eastwood doesn't feel the need to get married to his girlfriend at this point, as a source stated:

"Clint doesn't see any point in marrying again. He loves Christina, but marriage isn't something he needs."


Not marrying his girlfriend doesn't mean that the film icon isn't fond of Sandera. They care for each other just like a married couple, and even Eastwood's children love Sandera for the amazing woman she is.


The legendary actor turned 91 years old on May 31 while celebrating his special day with his loved ones in Carmel. He isn't fond of hosting huge birthday parties, so a low-key get-together at his place was enough to make his day.

While celebrating his big day, Eastwood had his loving girlfriend by his side. His friends and family who couldn't attend the celebration also wished him through phone calls and messages. 


The Hollywood icon isn't slowing down anytime soon. He's all set to release his directional project, "Cry Macho," on October 22, 2021.
