Clint Eastwood Quotes That Will Make Your Day

Successful actor, Academy Award-winner, and producer, it seems like Clint Eastwood does it all in Hollywood. This 90-year-old tackles each project with the grit and toughness that only one could learn from his time in the wild wild west.

So naturally, the legendary actor has dropped some pretty memorable bits of knowledge along the way. Some sayings were taken from his movies, and others, right from the horse’s mouth.

Whether it’s about mental toughness or straight up badass-ness, these are some of our favorite Eastwood quotes.

Top 10 Clint Eastwood Quotes

“I tried being reasonable, but I didn’t like it.”“I don’t wanna need you because I can’t have you.”“Take your work seriously, but don’t take yourself seriously.”“I’m not a regrets-type person.”“If I was a dreamer, I would have achieved nothing. And I certainly would not deal with such trifles as playing in movies.”

6. Clint Eastwood, the Outlaw

The award-winning actor’s name was synonymous with western films for some time, and it’s there that some of his best quotes came to be. Like this one from The Outlaw Josey Wales, “Dying ain’t much of living boy.”

Eastwood stars as the wanted criminal Josey Wales. A person turns up to arrest him, and Wales asks if he is a bounty hunter. The man responds by saying, “A man has got to do something for a living these days.” Wales reply is a classic, and also a song by Bon Jovi!

7. ‘The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly’ Eastwood

Though we think Eastwood is far from ugly in this 1966 western movie, he says something profound and that’s making our list.

“In this world there’s two kinds of people, my friend. The ones with loaded guns and the ones who dig. You dig.”

The lines come after a big shootout, and the bad guy’s dead. However, the buried treasure has yet to be found. Eastwood’s character, Joe, makes his former friend dig for it. He is holding the gun after all.

8. Million Dollar Question

“OK, you did two things wrong. First, you asked a question, and second, you asked another question,” Eastwood says in the movie “Million Dollar Baby.” He directs, co-produces, scores, and stars in the film. Eastwood takes on the role of an underappreciated boxing coach, Frankie Dunn.

He’s hard-nosed and won’t take on Margaret “Maggie” Fitzgerald (Hillary Swank). The two are outsiders in the boxing world, but they fight their way into the ring in this critically acclaimed film.

9. Another Epic Line

We’ve for sure heard this one used in conversation before. But did you know that it was Eastwood who said it first in “Sudden Impact?”

“Go ahead, make my day.”

In this Dirty Harry film, Eastwood walks into a cafe and discovers that a robbery is in process. As history would have it, he shoots his way into and out of it.

The line is a result of Harry’s response to the hostage situation. Plus, he also uses the line again in the film towards the end.

10. The Quote Heard Around the World

Perhaps our most favorite and one of Eastwood’s most famous, this is another quote from the hugely successful film “Dirty Harry.”

“You’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya, punk?”

Dirty Harry is at it again, breaking up a robbery, and again the scene has to do with breakfast. This time the robber tries to take his weapon. This is how Eastwood gets to the notorious line:

“I know what you’re thinking, punk. You’re thinking ‘Did he fire six shots or only five?’ Now, to tell you the truth, I’ve forgotten myself in all this excitement. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and it will blow your head clean off, you’ve gotta ask yourself a question: ‘Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?…’” 

This quote is so iconic that it’s made the AFI’s 100 Greatest Movie Quotes of All Time list, according to the American Film Institute.

Jot some of these quotes down, memorize them or just re-read the post, but a good quote always makes the perfect comeback. And in this case, Eastwood seems to be the king of comebacks.

And if you can’t get enough of these Clint Eastwood quotes, watch this montage of Dirty Harry quotes.

Clint Eastwood’s special dating history with Hollywood beauties .

Actor Clint Eastwood is one lucky guy! He’s dated a lot of gorgeous women in Hollywood, including his ex-wives Maggie Johnson and Dina Eastwood (née Ruiz). But no woman could ever make him feel as incredible as his current girlfriend, Christina Sandera, does.“He’s truly happy with her,” an insider exclusively told Closer Weekly in May 2020. “She’s fun, easygoing and his kids like her too. She’s on an even keel like he is.”

Christina came into the Gran Torino star’s life after Dina filed for divorce from Clint in October 2013. Two months after she sent in the paperwork, the reporter went on Bethenny Frankel’s former eponymous TV show to dish about her separation.“I don’t’ think we will be getting back together,” Dina said at the time. “That is why I filed for divorce. I think maybe a part of me was holding out, like ‘What are we doing here?’

Then there have been some definite signs that we’re not going to get back together so let’s move on amicably is my opinion, but I think there is a mental chokehold on you when you don’t have something in place that shows you are definitely apart.”Although the pair decided to call it quits, Dina explained she has no bad feelings towards Clint. In fact, she said he’s “probably the sweetest guy” she’s ever met. “He is a loving, kind, low-key person, so my intuition was still great on marrying a good person,” the journalist gushed.

It wasn’t long until the Academy Award winner moved his beloved into the same Carmel, California, home he used to share with Dina.“The first time I saw the place I thought it was terrific,” Clint gushed to Architectural Digest about his beautiful estate in August 2016. “Visually it was something else, and I thought it was the place I’d like to call home.”

Why Tom Hanks likens the Clint Eastwood style to entwined horses ?

Veteran actor Tom Hanks has likened Clint Eastwood’s directorial style to wrangling animals. Hanks worked with Eastwood for the first time on Sully, the story of a real-life feat of heroism in which his character, Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, safely landed an endangered plane New York’s Hudson river in 2009.

Hanks told the Graham Norton Show: “You certainly don’t want one of those Eastwood looks. “He treats his actors like horses because when he did the 60s series Rawhide, the director would shout ‘Action!’ and all the horses bolted. So when he’s in charge, he says in a really quiet soft voice, ‘All right, go ahead,’ and instead of shouting ‘Cut!’ he says ‘That’s enough of that.’ It’s intimidating as hell!”

Hanks also said that the real Sullenberger made for a strong presence on set, even criticizing Eastwood for his lack of punctuality when he was 20 minutes late. “Sully was very particular about how we portrayed the procedure and the emotions,” said Hanks. “He pulled out this dog-eared, stapled and notated script that he had read. Postits, stapled index cards all over it – I’m sure his wife had even written ‘No’ across it in lipstick! We went through every page and every moment, every beat had been commented on. He had opinions.”

Hanks and Eastwood campaigned for different sides during the recent US presidential campaign. The actor – who was even mooted by documentary-maker Michael Moore as a future Democrat candidate – was a vocal supporter of Hillary Clinton, frequently speaking of his lack of faith in her rival, Donald Trump, whom he described as a “self-involved” gas bags”.

Eastwood, meanwhile, came out for Trump in August, saying the Republican was “on to something, because everybody’s secretly getting tired of political correctness”. “That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now,” he said. “We’re really in a pussy generation.” Eastwood also said he thought a lot of the backlash to Trump was misplaced.

“We see people people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist. “Everybody, the press and everybody’s going, ‘Oh, well, that’s racist’ and they’re making a big hoodoo out of it. Just fucking get over it. It’s a sad time in history.”Following Trump’s earlier , Hanks election to reassure his fellow Clinton supporters about the future. “We are going to be all right,” he told an audience in New York. “We will move forward, because if we do not move forward, what is to be said about us?”
