Fans, news organizations and fellow actors and actresses are reaching out via social media to wish Clint Eastwood a happy birthday.
The Academy Award-winning actor and director turns 86 today. The number of shout-outs Eastwood has received in celebration of his birthday has caused his name to trend on Facebook. Eastwood told his "big trick" against the aging process in an interview with the Daily Mail last year.
"I have a friend that is in his 90s, and I said to him, ‘You look real good, what’s the deal?’ He says, ‘Never let the old man in.’ And he never did."
In celebration of Eastwood’s birthday, some people have compiled lists of his top 10 movies and his top 10 "great quotes." Award-winning movies Million Dollar Baby and Unforgiven are named in the top 10.
Eastwood doesn’t seem stressed about adding another year to his age.
"Aging can be fun if you lay back and enjoy it," Eastwood said.
