Poitras tells a funny story about asking for his future wife’s hand in marriage. In speaking about a conversation with Clint Eastwood, he revealed:
“Clint is a cool guy … but he’s definitely a man of few words. I quietly asked him when we were alone if it would be all right if I asked for his daughter’s hand in marriage. He coolly looked me in the eye and softly said, ‘You better take that up with her,’ to which I replied, ‘So, I have your permission?’ And he said, ‘Yes.’ “
A date for the big day has not yet been revealed.
Congratulations to the happy c0uple, even if we all saw it coming from a mile away.
