CLINT EASTWOOD’s still one tough cookie at age 83, and proved it while directing his new flick, “Jersey Boys,” ordering a stuntman performing a motorcycle trick to get off the bike – and hopping aboard himself!
“You’re not doing it right,” Clint told the guy.
“You’re supposed to make small circles, not big ones – and when you lift the wheel off the ground, you’re not taking it high enough. Now watch me!”
Said My SpyWitness: “Clint took off down the street, then came roaring back toward the camera, lifting the front wheel high off the ground, then turning the bike in three tight circles before coming to a screeching halt on a sidewalk curb! It was a spectacular performance – but frankly, no one, including the stuntman could see any real difference.”
Climbing off the bike, Clint told him: “Ride like you’re doing a rodeo trick. Can you do that?” So the guy repeated the stunt exactly the way he’d done it before – but this time, Clint yelled: “YES! Now that’s what I’m talking about!” Everyone was very confused, but relieved that Clint was finally happy.
