After attending drama lessons, he landed his first on-screen role in 1955. Eastwood purchased a home on the Central Coast and was later sworn in as mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea, where he overturned a law that outlawed ice cream cones and created public restrooms, a library annex, and a tourist parking lot.

Clint Eastwood, the iconic actor known for his roles in “Rawhide” and “Dirty Harry”, celebrated his 93rd birthday on May 31. Eastwood was born in San Francisco in 1930 to Clinton Eastwood Sr. and Ruth Wood and grew up in an area near Piedmont. He later moved to the Central Coast after being drafted for the Korean War and trained at Fort Ord, which is where he got his start in acting.
While stationed at Fort Ord, Eastwood was spotted by crewmembers of Universal Studios and was given a screen test in Los Angeles. The test reportedly did not go well, but Eastwood continued to attend drama lessons until he landed his first on-screen role in 1955. After finding success in Hollywood, Eastwood purchased a home on the Central Coast and has called it home ever since.
In addition to his successful acting career, Eastwood also briefly served as the Mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea. On April 8, 1986, he was sworn in and campaigned on overturning a law that outlawed ice cream cones in the town. During his tenure, he also oversaw the construction of public restrooms, a library annex, and a tourists’ parking lot.
Eastwood still lives on the Central Coast and in 2019, he and his long-time business partner Alan Williams purchased 2,000 acres of land in the hills near Carmel-by-the-Sea. Their plans are to develop 90 homes while keeping an estimated 85% of the land untouched.
Eastwood has inspired and mentored many in Hollywood and beyond, including his good friend and fellow actor Arnold Schwarzenegger. In a tweet, Schwarzenegger wished Eastwood a happy birthday, saying “You’ve inspired me, you’ve mentored me, and you’re a wonderful friend…”
