The first part of Clint Eastwood’s interview with Extra’s Jerry Penacoli is nothing but Jeff drooling all over Clint, licking up that drool and then drooling all over him again. I kept waiting to see a large wave of barf splash into Clint and Jerry’s faces, because the crew couldn’t take the grossness anymore. Seriously, Jerry should’ve just pulled down Clint’s nappy and giving him a handy right there. It would’ve been less obvious.
But anyway, if you skip to the 1:48 mark, Jerry finally stops worshiping at Clint’s feet and asks him about the amazing invisible chair act at the Republican National Convention. Clint said that Mitt Romney’s people asked him to speak and so he did. And this priceless jewel also fell out of Clint’s mouth:
“If someone’s dumb enough to ask you to go to a political convention and say something, they’re going to have to take what they can get.”
That might look like he just slapped the sparkle out of Mitt Romney’s teeth, but Clint then goes on to say that the country is messy, messy right now and he hopes Mitt can turn things and around and blah blah blah blah boringpoliticsstuff blah blah blah blah… Clint then says that one time when he spoke at a friend’s funeral, he talked to “mythical” people sitting on an empty stool.
So talking to people made of air sitting on a stool is Clint’s thing! And talking to people made of air is Amanda Bynes’ thing too. I always knew that Amanda Bynes was Clint Eastwood’s spirit animal and vice versa.
