Clint Eastwood: This Is The 'Pussy Generation'

Esquire: Clint and Scott Eastwood: No Holds Barred in Their First Interview Together

Think your old man is a ball-buster? Try being the son of Clint Eastwood. And then try making a name for yourself in the family business. This month, as Clint and Scott Eastwood go head-to-head at the box office, father and son sit down together for an interview for the first time.​

A meess of gnawed-open peanut shells litters the stoop of one of the Spanish-style bungalows on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, California. Since 1975, this bungalow, in the shadow of the massive Soundstage 3, has been the home of Clint Eastwood's production company, and when Eastwood and I walk up to the front door, we both notice the shells, bleaching in the hard-white late-afternoon sun.

"Those yours?" I ask him.

"Kind of," Eastwood tells me. "There's a squirrel around here. I like to put peanuts out for him. He's a nice guy. He comes right into the office sometimes. The other day, I opened the door and he was clinging on to it."

WNU Editor: He is right .... there are many who complain, there are many who have grievances that they can never shake-off, there are many who see work and sacrifice as a foreign concept, and .... this  always perturbs me .... there are many who have a strong belief that because of who and what they are makes them entitled to enjoy what this society can give .... without putting in the sweat equity and sacrifice. But fortunately for America, there are still many who do work incredibly hard, who live their lives with appreciation and honesty, and who have collectively .... to put it quite bluntly .... make (and continue to make) America work. Unfortunately ..... this part of American society is disappearing. I am a foreigner who has been an observer of American society since the 1980s .... and the American of today is culturally and politically completely different from what it was then .... and IMHO .... not for the good.

The Old Man has been a millionaire since the '60's, has never done a hard days work in the last half century, and has/lives in a bubble of wealth, respect, privledge and power.

I would have to agree with him. I am a 24 year old adult and have been working at a sawmill for three years now. Lets just say people my age come and go but the odd few stay. That goes for most hard working job's.

I have the same "crew" I've had for several years. Nobody leaves, and it's very hard work and dangerous.

But then, I pay well, ( wages, profit sharing, benifits, training).

North of me is a gyppo fingerjoin mill, pay's crap, works hard, there's bullying and harassment, and they are always both hiring, and laying off as the cycles churn.

MickeyD's actually provides a more rewarding and stable employment.

Are you Union?

As a millennial myself, there is a lot of truth to what Clint said, However, I also feel that we have been set up to fail, inheriting a declining country from the original "Me generation", the baby boomers.

Acting can be hard work.


I have seen the bubble of Hollywood.

They remade the film 1984. It was called V is for Vendetta. It was full frontal stupidity. Every cliche Hollywood had they put on display.
