Yes my friends….forget Hollywood, it’s all about Eastwood and his lovely wife Dina! One never knows what will happen during TIFF…the only thing you can expect is the unexpected. That was certainly the case when I had the good fortune of meeting the legendary Clint Eastwood and his incredible wife Dina.
I’m still on cloud 9. Not only did Clint stop to pull her in when hearing that we shared a name…but she was the most beautiful, gracious, warm woman! It’s like we knew each other forever! It was totally surreal. She commented that we looked like sister’s (a huge compliment to me), and we had the best time forgetting about ‘red carpet’ etiquette and snapping pictures to soak up the fun. I was blown away by how real they both are. Blown away. These pictures were sent to me by Dina herself….(thanks Di!), it was a moment I will cherish forever. The last photo is the one our cameras caught when Dina’s died….the quintessential shot of Clint with his Double D’s…ahahahha! Goes to show that regardless of fame or fortune, people are people…and this case, Dina and Clint are the purest kind. The response since airing the footage has been overwhelming from everyone at home. Glad you were able to see them as I did that remarkable night. Me, wedged in Clint’s armpit….group hugs, good times….I dare you TIFF, go ahead and make my day…..these two are a tough act to follow….
