The source added that the “Rawhide” star is also grateful for his girlfriend, Christina Sandera, with whom he has been spending quality time with. Speaking about Christiana, who has been together with Clint since they met in 2014, the insider said:

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

According to Britannica, Clint became a force to reckon with on the international front following his appearance in Sergio Leone’s Dollars Trilogy known as “A Fistful of Dollars,” “For a Few Dollars More,” and “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.”

The thriller was followed by several other projects including “High Plains Drifter,” “The Eiger Sanction,” and “The Outlaw Josey Wales.”

With the number of years that he has spent as a successful actor and director, The Guardian pointed out that part of his secret was that he was always working as he has learned that sometimes, things work out and other times, it falls flat.

When his movies “White Hunter” and Black Heart failed to sway the audience, he made a comeback with the award-winning 1992 film, “Unforgiven.” Several years after that movie’s release, Reuters reported that the actor was open to making another Western film.

Meanwhile, Closer Weekly recalled that he took them along for the 2018 premiere of his movie, “The Mule.” Even his first wife, Margaret “Maggie” Johnson and his girlfriend were in attendance.
