Perhaps the icon of macho movie stars, Clint Eastwood has become a standard in international cinema. As actor, director and producer, Eastwood has made his name in both TV and film. Outside of acting, Eastwood has been involved in politics: he was elected mayor of Carmel, California in 1986, serving two years. His film Gran Torino's (2008) $30 million opening weekend in January 2009 made Eastwood the oldest leading man to reach #1 at the box office. After starring in iconic movies for four decades, Clint Eastwood has proved himself to be the longest-running movie star.
