The fancy scales in D.C. were tipped this week by the arrival of legend Clint Eastwood. In town to promote his new film J. Edgar, Eastwood walked the (very short) red carpet for a screening at the Newseum.
The Fancy Feast hates biopics, but she loves red carpets. Sadly, TBD was pushed into reporter loserland four feet off the rug, but The Hill’s Judy Kurtz got close enough to ask the man about how he felt about his name being floated as a potential running mate for George H. W. Bush during his 1988 presidential race. “I didn’t know they were that smart,” was Eastwood’s cool reply.
The Examiner’s Nikki Schwab also got in a word with Eastwood, who told her that J. Edgar Hoover is “still a mystery to me.” Schwab got J. Edgar screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (that guy that got famous after the 2009 Oscars) to talk about hanging out with Leonardo DiCaprio at the Mayflower, where Hoover lunched daily. Super fancy.
TBD's photographer Joshua Yospyn captured all the fanciness on film here.
