Clint Eastwood, 93, Spotted in Rare Appearance at Event in California

Tough-guy actor and director Clint Eastwood just made a rare appearance.

Eastwood, who turns 94 next month (on May 31), was in good spirits when he was spotted attending an event in his hometown of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, on March 24, per photos obtained by The Post.

Eastwood was at the local Sunset Cultural Center in Carmel to attend a speaking engagement hosted by renowned conservationist Jane Goodall.

The bright-eyed icon sat front-and-center at the event, “Reasons for Hope,” and also joined Goodall backstage at the reception along with other VIPs about an hour before the event, where they chatted amiably.

He was accompanied by an assistant.

The event was presented by the Wildlife Conservation Network and was part of Goodall’s “90th Birthday Tour,” according to a photo recently shared on LinkedIn.

Goodall turned 90 on April 3.

The 93-year-old Eastwood, sporting a bushy white beard, was wearing a blue checkered flannel shirt, gray slacks and sneakers and was absorbed in the talk.

Goodall is renowned for her work with primates, so it’s not surprising that Eastwood turned out to hear her speak. He starred opposite Clyde, an orangutan, in the 1978 movie comedy “Every Which Way but Loose.”

He also exposed his children to the wonders of nature by raising them on his ranch in Carmel, surrounded by all sorts of animals.

Eastwood, who served two years as the mayor of Carmel in the mid-1980s, is still going strong in the film business — he’s currently directing and producing the upcoming movie “Juror No. 2,” starring Nicholas Hoult and Toni Collette.

“Juror No. 2” is a courtroom drama where a juror and family man, Justin Kemp (Hoult), starts to realize that he was the one who killed the victim in a case of reckless driving, according to Collider.

Now, he’s put in the position of trying to save the defendant on trial without incriminating himself.

It began shooting last June.

Eastwood’s career spans nearly 70 years in show business.

He’s won four Oscars — two apiece for “Unforgiven” (1993) and “Million Dollar Baby” (2005), both for Best Picture and Best Director — and has been nominated seven more times, including a nod for “American Sniper” (2015) starring Bradley Cooper.
