HollywoodFit Icon: Clint Eastwood (and Son!)


Today's HollywodFit Icon is Clint Eastwood. Most than daddy's pistol was smokin' back in the day.

For being like a thousand years old, Clint is STILL looking pretty fit! He could get it.

Clint on weight training: "I liked lifting weights because I always felt good after a workout. I also liked to drink a lot of beer and I figured the lifting was a good way to stay in shape." 

Clint famously did his own stunts, including jumping from a bridge to a moving bus in Dirty Harry. He was 41 at the time. The actor is a vegan and still maintains his fit frame (he's 83 this year). During the filming of Rawhide, he's noted for telling people to stay away from carbs and rich desserts. The show ran from 1959 to 1965, decades before the Atkins diet was even a thing.

p.s. Clint Eastwood's son, Scott, is holding down the family line.
