Clint Eastwood stood apart from his Hollywood peers to support California Governor Gavin Newsom’s recall opponent, Larry Elder.
Legendary actor and director Clint Eastwood has defied the liberal world of Hollywood to throw his support behind conservative talk radio host Larry Elder, who is currently running to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) in the California recall election.
Actor Clint Eastwood Supports Larry Elder
While the 91-year-old actor is most famous for his roles in Dirty Harry, Unforgiven and countless award-winning films spanning eight decades, he is also one of the few noted conservatives in Hollywood.
Eastwood even spoke at the 2012 Republican National Convention.
Elder revealed the actor’s support on Twitter, writing, “Clint Eastwood just contacted me with a message of his support. A shout out to Mr. Eastwood. You made my day.”
It’s unclear at this time if Eastwood plans to formally endorse Elder.
