When Clint Eastwood showed up to the Academy Awards on Sunday to support his film American Sniper, many were shocked by who he brought with him.
The 84 year-old director showed up with his much-younger new girlfriend, Christina Sandera. According to USA Today, the couple have been together since last summer. Sandera is the first woman Eastwood has dated since his divorce from his second wife Dina, whom he was married to for 18 years.
Sandera works as a restaurant hostess at Eastwood’s Mission Ranch Hotel in Carmel, California, a town which Eastwood was once the mayor of. Though Sandera’s age was not disclosed, the blonde is clearly much younger than Eastwood. We would be surprised if she is even 40 years old, so the age difference is at least pushing 50 years.
Many liberals have raised their eyebrows at Eastwood for having such a young girlfriend, but we can’t help but pat him on the back!
