Clint Eastwood is a well-known and adored actor and filmmaker.

He has received numerous film prizes for his famous performances, not to mention his involvement in politics, and has served as a symbol of masculinity for many years.

The 89-year-old celebrity does not make a big deal of his personal life, but he has had his fair share of relationships. In addition to having married twice, he has seven children.

However, Eastwood just shared a tale that links him to one of his well-known films and about which he has been silent for many years.

The longest running movie star in Hollywood was born in 1930 in San Francisco during the Great Depression. He has one younger sister.

His father was a steel worker and the family moved around a lot during his youth.

He was nicknamed Samson at birth and he weighed an astonishing 11 pounds 6 ounces. He eventually grew to be 6 feet 4 inches tall.

According to Wikipedia, he relocated to Seattle after finishing high school and worked as a lifeguard there before being enlisted in the US Army in 1950.

But many people are unaware of the fact that Eastwood, at 21 years old, was a passenger on a naval plane from World War II that crashed in the Pacific.

In an interview with The Telegraph, Eastwood stated, “I was getting a free transport from Seattle down to Almeda.

We went down in the Pacific Ocean off Point Reyes, California, during a storm. I ended myself in the water and began swimming a distance towards the beach. Well, 21 is not as long as a person desires to live, I recalled thinking.

Call for assistance over the radio

After swimming through kelp beds for many hours in the Pacific, Eastwood finally reached shore and scaled a bluff to send out a distress call.

When he was directing the Tom Hanks-starring biographical film Sully: Miracle on the Hudson in 2016, this experience proved to be quite helpful.

The critically acclaimed film depicts the 2009 emergency Hudson River landing of US Airways Flight 1549, in which all 155 passengers and crew members were saved.

In the movie, Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, who was later overruled by his superiors, made the split-second decision to land the jet in the icy Hudson River.

In an interview with The Telegraph, Eastwood said, “I suppose having been in a similar situation as the pilot, I would have risked a water landing rather than go someplace where there is no runway.”

“Sully was obviously familiar with the region…He chose a good location…He continued, “He knew someone would notice them.

Despite the remarkable landing Sully accomplished and the lives he saved, Eastwood was more fascinated by what happened next.

Anyone who maintains composure under pressure and can resolve issues without losing their cool is of great character and entertaining to see on screen, according to Eastwood.

However, the main struggle for me was when the investigative board questioned his choices despite the fact that he had saved so many lives.
