Clint Eastwood remains the bright representative of that golden era in Hollywood, when actresses were really beautiful and actors were really strong. Unbelievably talented actor and film director, he created a number of movies, which made his viewers think and feel. At the same time, he tried his hand as a politician, and some of his fans hoped, that Eastwood – the active member of Republican Party – would run for the president one day. In fact, Clint Eastwood really kept to conservative views as a politician. But he was really democratic and modern in his views as for his family life. He went down the aisles twice and had 7 kids (although the exact amount of Clint Eastwood children is unspecified and is a mystery even for himself). Most of Clint Eastwood kids were born out of wedlock, but he loves all of them, in spite of the fact, who were their mothers.
In 2014 Clint divorced with his second wife, and at the “80 something” age started dating another woman. Let’s have a look at Clint Eastwood fiancée.
Clint Eastwood wife
Christina Sandera (fiancée since 2014)
Date of birth: 1964
In one of his interviews Clint Eastwood told, that he got tired from chasing every skirt he sees and he planned to stay alone. But soon the actor was pictured by paparazzi, when he was going out of a supermarket with a beautiful blonde by his side.
The name of this blonde is Christina Sandera. She is 34 years younger than Mr. Eastwood. Before their meeting she worked as a hostess in a hotel. Later she moved to Clint’s mansion.
Christina was previously married to Paul Wainscoat. They divorced in 2003 after 11 months of married life. Paul named his ex-wife “an alcoholic with a criminal past”. It turned out, that Christina visited alcoholics anonymous meetings and also anger management meetings.
Christina met the famous entertainer Clint Eastwood in his hotel “Mission Ranch”. She served as a restaurant hostess there. As for now, Sandera has already made friends with Clint Eastwood kids, who think, that “she is ok”.
Not long ago the woman was photographed with a huge engagement ring on her finger. So, probably, the wedding bells will ring for the third time for a Hollywood veteran Clint Eastwood!
Maggie Johnson (ex-wife; married in 1953-1978)
Date of birth: 1931
Margaret Neville Johnson is celebrated as a fashion model, but her career achievements are not so bright in comparison with the events in her personal life.
Maggie and Clint met at a blind date, arranged for them by a common friend. The beauty, who worked as a swimsuit model and Clint, one of the tallest Hollywood actors, fell in love with one another and tied a knot on December 19, 1953. Many women worldwide envied the woman, who managed to marry one of the most handsome and most talented men in the world. But Maggie seemed to be not so happy. “He is a loner. And he is a very complicated person”, she opened up once in the interview.
Many times during the years of their marriage Clint had affairs with other women. They separated for the first time in 1964. Then the couple reconciled, but during the short period of freedom Clint has already welcomed a daughter Kimber with a dancer Roxanne Tunis. The child was given for adoption.
In 1968 Maggie finally gave a birth to her and Clint’s first child. It was a boy Kyle Eastwood. Several years ago they welcomed a girl Alison.
Many journalists named Maggie and Clint affair “exotic”. In fact, the actor cheated his wife all the time, and Maggie seemed to agree with it. Clint’s bond of marriage wasn’t too serious for him. He started an affair with an actress Sondra Locke, who was still married to a sculptor Gordon Anderson at that time. Their love story was publicized, and that was the last straw for Maggie. She filed for divorce. Clint Eastwood paid his ex-wife $25 million – one million for each year of married life.
After that Maggie Johnson re-married a camera man Henry Wynberg. Their marriage lasted for 5 years and ended with a divorce in 1989.
Maggie Johnson played a number of screen roles, including Beth in “Ironside”.
Dina Ruiz Eastwood (ex-wife; married in 1996-2014)
Date of birth: July 11, 1965
Sondra Locke cohabited with Clint Eastwood during 14 years. She starred in six movies, directed by Clint Eastwood. Rumor has it, Locke made 2 abortions, because Clint didn’t want to have kids. Sondra was ready for everything to make Eastwood marry her. But he left an actress and fell in love with another woman – a stewardess Jacelyn Reeves, who gave a birth to his son Scott Eastwood and daughter Kathryn. But two kids are not the reason to get married, at least for Clint. He left Reeves and started an affair with an actress Frances Fisher. They welcomed a daughter Francesca. But instead of marrying Frances, Clint proposed to another woman.
Dina Marie Ruiz was born in the Bay Area in the family of a teacher Michael Ruiz (who grew up with adoptive parents of Latino origin) and Mary Lou. After graduation from school Dina studied broadcast journalism in San Francisco State University. She worked as a news anchor and a waitress (because her salary of a TV worker was too small and she needed some extra income), when occasionally was sent for an interview with an Oscar-winning actor Clint Eastwood. After that her life changed. She started dating A Fistful of Dollars star and married him on March 31, 1996. That very year they welcomed a daughter Morgan.
With Clint’s support the TV personality started her own educational show “Quest for Excellence”. In 2012 she presented reality series “Mrs. Eastwood & Company”.
In 2013 Dina and Clint announced their separation. It turned out, that the couple started to live separately some time ago. Their divorce was finalized in 2014.
Around that time Dina started dating her school sweetheart Scott Fisher. They married in July, 2016 in California. According to Dina’s Instagram post, she is “on Cloud Nine” now.
