Relationships

Twice married Eastwood has fathered seven children by five different women. In 1968 and 1970 he respectively engaged in on-location affairs with co-starsJean Seberg (Paint Your Wagon) and Jo Ann Harris (The Beguiled).At one point in the 1980s Eastwood dated Barbra Streisand.

Eastwood married Maggie Johnson on December 19 1953 six months after they met on a blind date. However their matrimony would not prove altogether smooth with Eastwood later acknowledging that he had married at too young of an age (twenty-three). A decade later while separated from Johnson Eastwood engaged in an affair with Rawhide stuntwoman and bit actress Roxanne Tunis (who was also married yet separated) fathering his first child Kimber Tunis (born June 17 1964); he did not publicly acknowledge her until 1996. After a reconciliation he had two children with Johnson: Kyle Eastwood (born May 19 1968) and Alison Eastwood (born May 22 1972). Eastwood filed for divorce in 1979 after another long separation but the $25 million divorce settlement was not finalized until May 1984.

Eastwood entered into a relationship with co-star Sondra Locke in the fall of 1975 while shooting The Outlaw Josey Wales. Their relationship lasted almost fourteen years despite the fact that Locke remained married to her gay husband Gordon Anderson throughout that period. Locke had two abortions and a tubal ligation within the first four years of the relationship. The couple co-starred in six films together: The Outlaw Josey Wales The GauntletEvery Which Way but Loose Bronco Billy Any Which Way You Can and Sudden Impact. After divorcing Maggie Johnson in 1984 Eastwood asked for Locke's hand in marriage but she refused to leave Gordon Anderson. Their relationship especially soured in the late eighties when Eastwood first learned that Locke was attempting to evict the superstar's live-in USC student son (Kyle Eastwood) and then when Eastwood learned that Locke was discussing a palimony suit against him with a divorce lawyer. On April 10 1989 while Locke was directing the film Impulse Eastwood changed the locks on their Bel Air home and had many of her possessions removed and placed in storage. Locke filed a palimony suit against Eastwood then sued him a second time for fraud regarding an underwritten directing contract he set up for her in settlement of the first lawsuit. Eastwood and Locke finally resolved the dispute with a non-public settlement in 1999.

During the last four years of his increasingly strained relationship with the still-married Locke Eastwood engaged in a somewhat surreptitious affair with flight attendant Jacelyn Reeves. According to biographers the two met at a pub in Carmel and conceived a son Scott Reeves (born March 21 1986) at the premiere of Pale Rider. They also had a daughter Kathryn Reeves (born February 2 1988). The birth certificates for both children stated Father declined. Although authorized biographer Richard Schickel mentioned them in his 1996 book about the star Eastwood did not present his and Reeves' children to the public until 2002. Kathryn served as Miss Golden Globe at the 2005 ceremony where she presented Eastwood with an award for Million Dollar Baby.

In 1990 Eastwood began living with actress Frances Fisher whom he had met on the set of Pink Cadillac (1989). They co-starred in Unforgiven and had a daughter Francesca Fisher-Eastwood (born August 7 1993). The couple ended their relationship in early 1995 but remain friends and later acted together in True Crime.

Eastwood subsequently began dating Dina Ruiz a television news anchor 35 years his junior whom he had first met when she interviewed him in 1993. They married on March 31 1996 when Eastwood surprised her with a private ceremony at a home on the Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas. After their wedding Dina commented The fact that I am only the second woman he has married really touches me. The couple has one daughter Morgan Eastwood (born December 12 1996).

Leisure

Despite smoking in some of his films Eastwood is a lifelong non-smoker has been conscious of his health and fitness since he was a teenager and as a Vegan practices healthy eating and daily Transcendental Meditation.While promoting his film Hereafter Eastwood spoke about his views on religion and meditation by saying I was always respectful of people who were deeply religious because I always felt that if they gave themselves to it then it had to be important to them. But if you can go through life without it that’s OK too. It’s whatever suits you. I do believe in self-help. I’m not a New Age person but I do believe in meditation and for that reason I’ve always liked the Buddhist religion. When I’ve been to Japan I’ve been to Buddhist temples and meditated and I found that rewarding. Eastwood also said that he was on the fence when it came to believing in God saying I was born during the Depression and I was brought up with no specific church. We moved every four or five months during the first 14 years of my life so I was sent to a different church depending on wherever we lived. Most of them were Protestant but I went to other churches because my parents wanted me to try to figure out things for myself. They always said ‘I just want to expose you to some religious order and see if that’s something you like’. So although my religious training was not really specific I do feel spiritual things. If I stand on the side of the Grand Canyon and look down it moves me in some way. Of course it would be wonderful to talk with my parents again who are of course deceased. It makes the idea of death much less scary. But then again if you think that nothing happens after you die maybe it makes you live life better. Maybe you’re supposed to do the best you can by the gift you’re given of life and that alone.

He opened an old English-inspired pub called the Hog's Breath Inn in Carmel-by-the-Sea in 1971. Eastwood eventually sold the pub and now owns the Mission Ranch Hotel and Restaurant also located in Carmel-by-the-Sea.

Eastwood is a keen golfer and owns the Tehàma Golf Club. He is also an investor in the world-renowned Pebble Beach Golf Links and donates his time every year to charitable causes at major tournaments. Eastwood is a certified pilot and often flies his helicopter to the studios to avoid traffic.
