Clint Eastwood is a leader in Hollywood, who has been able to maintain his career despite his staunch conservative beliefs—which directly conflict with the opinions of many of his colleagues.
When Eastwood recently appeared on the TV show “Extra” to promote his new movie, he was asked about his opinions regarding the GOP presidential field for 2016—and as usual, he did not hold back.
The 85-year-old director called front-runner Donald Trump “great.”
“It’s an unusual thing he’s done so far,” Eastwood said of Trump’s controversial campaign. “I think people are looking for somebody that’s outspoken and who isn’t afraid, and he seems to have a fearless attitude.”
Eastwood also expressed his support for Ben Carson.
“I like Ben Carson cause he’s kind of a common sense guy and also doesn’t seem to be afraid, and Rubio, who I’ve met and I like very much, and Ted Cruz,” Eastwood commented.
“Any one of them would be better than what we got,” he concluded.
