I just read the Clint Eastwood interview, well cool, he is probably the most manliest of men, he’s getting on now though, what is he like 75 now? I noticed his age when I watched Gran Torino, I did a post on him a while back, it’s a humurous story but still worth a read, well I reckon anyway lol http://blokebuddy.com/2009/humour/what-if-me-and-clint-eastwood-were-the-last-men-on-earth/
