Clint Eastwood: I don't text

Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood has never sent a text message.

The American actor continues to work, despite having reached the grand age of 82.

The star is on top form professionally, but admits he is a little behind when it comes to modern technology.

"I use my cell phone only in emergencies," he confessed to German magazine TV Movie.

"And I have never sent a text message in my life."

Clint stars alongside Amy Adams in drama Trouble with the Curve, playing a grumpy elderly man.

The star is very conscious of his health and practises a vegan lifestyle, which could be the reason he is ageing so well.

"Every old man is grumpy!" he laughed.

"Up until now I have been enjoying my age... I hit the gym and read the articles from American Journal of Medicine."

The star continues to produce a steady stream of movies, including hits Million Dollar Baby and Gran Torino.

Despite temporarily considering retirement, it doesn't seem like Clint will be giving up acting any time soon.

"Do I plan to quit my job? In the '70s I thought about it... But then my career took a different direction and everything turned out well," he explained.

Leo:

Don't confuse love with lust. Having a physical relationship with someone isn't an indication of emotional commitment. If you're with someone who doesn't want to spend time with you outside the bedroom, move on to greener pastures. It's sometimes difficult to face the truth of a situation like this. When in doubt, talk to a trusted friend. They'll give you an honest assessment of this bond. A relative may ask to come to their rescue. Fortunately, you have the necessary resources to bail them out.More
