Clint Eastwood Rages At 'Ageist' Hollywood

31 August 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Legendary action hero Clint Eastwood has slammed the Hollywood film industry - accusing it of age discrimination. The 70-year-old star has denounced Tinseltown's studios, claiming they are "faddist" and "copiers". Eastwood says, "You get a little older and they want you to play roles 20 years younger, which is ridiculous. They want you to play a 40-year-old guy. You don't want to play a 40-year-old guy any more. Hollywood is a very faddist community." Now that his new movie Space Cowboys (2000), about "four senior guys going into space", has proved a hit - taking $18.75 million at the American box office in its first weekend - Clint predicts there will "probably be some other movies about four senior guys going into space". He continues, "Hollywood aren't innovators, but copiers. Once in a while, an innovator comes along and writes a script and you go for it." »

Clint Cheats In Space Movie

18 August 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Clint Eastwood hung his Space Cowboys (2000) co-stars from ceilings and whizzed them around on stools fitted with caster wheels to simulate weightlessness - because he feared they were too old to try out NASA's famous 'Vomit Comet.' The actor/director could have followed the example set by the cast of Apollo 13 (1995) and simulated space scenes in a G-3 plane, used to create weightless situations without leaving the earth's atmosphere. But after hearing about how ill it made Tom Hanks and his Apollo 13 (1995) co-stars, Eastwood decided he'd try more simple methods for himself and co-stars Tommy Lee Jones, James Garner and Donald Sutherland. Jones recalls, "We even had people holding on to walls as if that were necessary to keep yourself from floating off and then we had ballpoint pens and clipboards floating by suspended on filament lines." Eastwood adds, "We used every trick possible. We could have built the set in the Vomit Comet but it's called that for a reason and our way beat the alternative." »

Clint Eastwood Keeps A Close Eye On Movie Marketing

21 March 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Clint Eastwood is keeping a close eye on his latest project--by scrutinizing the marketing of his new movie Space Cowboys (2000). Eastwood claims that WARNER, which has distributed his movies for many years, screwed up the release of his movie True Crime (1999) last year. He says, "I didn't think that it would be vastly commercial, but it was a terrible release job and lacked studio support. "I let them get away with releasing it the way they did and it was the worst I have ever had, in the '90s at least." »
