Clint Eastwood's real estate is unbelievable

Clint Eastwood might be getting older but he's not planning on retiring just yet. The actor/director told USA Today in 2018: "Maybe I just don't want a certain volume of work, but, no, it hasn't lessened. I love what I do."

Eastwood explained his stance on resisting retirement: "I'll probably keep on going. I feel good, but it depends on material. I probably wouldn't do something just because it was marginal – I have to kind of think it has some validity and has some relationship to today."

Because of his remarkable work-ethic and the consistently high quality of his films, Eastwood's net worth is listed at $375 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

According to the outlet, Eastwood loves purchasing real estate and has amassed several properties. He owns a 15,000 square foot estate in Carmel-by-the-Sea as well as a 6,136 square foot home in Bel Air, according to Celebrity Net Worth. The director bought another home next door to his Bel Air property. Eastwood also owns the 1,067 acre Rising River Ranch in Burney. Not only that, but Eastwood also owns oceanfront property in Maui and a huge house in Sun Valley, Idaho.

Not bad for a guy who started out in spaghetti Westerns!

Clint Eastwood doesn't take his wealth for granted

In an August 2016 interview with Esquire, Clint Eastwood opened up about "one of the most affecting things that ever happened" in his life. "I was a little kid, five years old, and a guy comes to the back of our house and says to my mother, 'There's a bunch of wood in the back. Could I chop that up for you, ma'am?' he recalled. "And my mother says, 'We don't have money.' And he says, 'I don't want any money. Just a sandwich.'" 

When the interviewer noted to Eastwood that he appeared emotional when retelling the story, he replied, "It's a strange vision, when you see desperation like that. It was for a kid — I guess I became a kid for a moment. You know, when somebody says, 'I don't want anything. I just want the bare necessities to exist.'"

This experience seems to have informed the way Eastwood views money, especially where it concerns his kids. "My dad never gave me a cent," Scott Eastwood told Men's Health in 2015 (via Us Weekly). "He made me work for everything."
