Clint Eastwood has bounced back from his failed marriage quickly, it might seem.
Just days after announcing that he was divorcing his longtime wife, the 83-year-old actor/director was spotted at Los Angeles International Airport dropping off an unidentified woman. The blonde was seen exiting Clint’s car and smiling as she said goodbye.
Eastwood’s manager, Leonard Hirshan, said he didn’t know anything about the situation.
There is still plenty of doubt whether the woman is a love interest for Clint Eastwood or just a friend or family member. Some say the woman is actually his daughter, Alison Eastwood, and that wouldn’t be the first “mystery woman” to turn out to be a family member. A few weeks ago Justin Timberlake was spotted leaving a party with a young blonde woman, leading to speculation that he was stepping out on wife Jessica Biel. It turned out the “mystery blonde” was actually his cousin.
Whatever the case may be, Clint’s now-ex Dina Eastwood doesn’t want to drag his name through the mud.
“I don’t like reading negative things about Clint,” she wrote. “He is a wonderful, good natured, brilliant person. No matter what, I attest to that.”
Reports say Dina has already moved on with an old flame — her old high school boyfriend, University of Hawaii assistant basketball coach Scott Fisher.
Clint and Dina announced this week that they are splitting up, though the couple has actually been separated for close to a year. The two was married for 17 years and had a daughter, Morgan.
Reports say the trouble started for the couple after Dina signed on for a reality television show called Mrs. Eastwood and Company. The show followed the daily lives of Dina, Morgan, and Francesca Fisher-Eastwood, Clint’s daughter with actress Frances Fisher.
The show reportedly irked Clint Eastwood, who is very deliberate about his public image and what bits of his personal life are available for public consumption. The show fizzled out after one season due to poor ratings, but by that point the damage to the marriage was done.
