The internet loves Clint Eastwood, as evidenced by the Gran Torino/PBR meme, which is just golden. The man has directed and starred in some great movies over the years, but it was Gran Torino that seems to have really endeared him to denizens of the web. If I had a nickel for every time I’ve seen “get off my lawn” in my Twitter feed over the past couple of years, well, I’d probably be able to buy a fresh Gran Torino lunchbox and still have some change left over for a Twix.
With that said, I have a feeling the internet will love Clint Eastwood even more because of this interview he did in the new issue of GQ in which he addresses the subject of gay marriage.
“These people who are making a big deal about gay marriage? I don’t give a f*ck about who wants to get married to anybody else! Why not!? We’re making a big deal out of things we shouldn’t be making a big deal about of. Just give everybody the chance to have the life they want.”
Clint Eastwood is a goddamn national treasure, is he not?
Yeah, that’s what I thought.
