At 91, Eastwood throws punch and rides horse in new movie…

Clint East­wood has been direct­ing him­self and oth­ers longer than many of his col­leagues have been alive. If he walks a lit­tle slow­er on-screen, he’s entitled.

Eastwood’s first film behind the cam­era, “Play Misty for Me,” came out half a cen­tu­ry ago, and he’s still at it. At age 91, with his new “Cry Macho” set for a Sept. 17 release in the­aters and on HBO Max, East­wood — whose act­ing cred­its date to 1955 — is per­haps the old­est Amer­i­can ever to both direct and star in a major motion pic­ture. But ask if any­thing is dif­fer­ent between then and now and you get the ver­bal equiv­a­lent of an amused shrug.

“I nev­er think about it,” East­wood says, con­sid­er­ing the ques­tion. “If I’m not the same guy, I don’t want to know any­thing about it. I might not like the new guy. I might think, ‘What am I doing with this idiot?’” He smiles at the thought.
