This might come as a shock, but Clint Eastwood doesn’t really smoke in real life, even though he has portrayed many smokers in his career.
With so many actors dying at an early age in their life and career it’s a miracle that Clint Eastwood has made it to 84 and is still going strong. But if you actually take into consideration that he’s not a smoker in real life and he pays good attention to his health, you’ll see why the American actor is still alive and well.
Through his 60 years long acting, producing, filming, singing and directing career Eastwood has never smoked habitually. You can see him puffing on a cigarette or a cigar – and he does it with such conviction and skill you’d think he’s been puffing on smokes for years. However, the 84 year old actor isn’t a smoker in real life. His acting skills and the sacrifices he has made for his projects have given him the ability to portray tons of different characters and make them believable. In his real life, however, Eastwood is really cautious about his health.
He’s been known for practicing Transcendental Meditation on almost daily basis. He’s been health conscious ever since his early childhood years and he’s careful about what he eats. He has portrayed many cowboys in the past, but that doesn’t mean he practices the hillbilly diet. In fact, Eastwood is a vegan. It might come as a shock, but even though Eastwood might come out as a man, who likes his steak, he actually doesn’t eat any meat.
Apart from that, he’s also a big supporter of gun control and is against violence. He sure has portrayed many extremely violent characters, some of which have become iconic, but he’s always been concerned about the amount of violence in his projects and have tried to lower the violence to the lowest possible degree without ruining the character.
