Which Presidential Candidate Is Clint Eastwood Backing?

Clint EastwoodIf he had to pick a president based on their level of handsomeness, famed actor and director Clint Eastwood thinks Mitt Romney would soon be answering to Commander in Chief.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Eastwood was recently at a fundraiser in Idaho and spoke up about the good looking man who was governor of the state where he was filming Mystic River back in 2000. “I said, ‘God, this guy is too handsome to be governor, but he does look like he could be president.’ As the years have gone by I’m beginning to think even more so that.”

The presidential hopeful said it “made my day” when the actor got up on stage to speak on his behalf. Eastwood told the crowd of supporters, “It’s now more important than ever that we need Gov. Romney, and I’m going to be voting for him as I know most of you will be.” He cites one of the reasons for his decision is his belief that the Republican candidate will restore “a decent tax system” which would remove the need for people to be “pitted against one another.”

He summed it up by saying, “We’ve got to just spread the word and get the whole country behind this because it’s going to be an exciting election.”

Before joining the Hollywood.com team, Lisa spent one year traveling the world in search of culture, and a country that wasn't Kardashian obsessed. FYI: none exist. But since she wasn't born a Hilton — and therefore needed multiple jobs to pay for the many airline miles — she wrote about her trip experiences and other celebrities for 'TV Guide,' 'InTouch,' 'OK!,' 'Redbook,' 'Marie Claire' and many others. Her last job was as a senior associate editor at EW.com, and she blames her love for reality TV and teen dramas on the little amount of sleep she gets thanks to her newest title, Mom.
