Who is Kathryn Eastwood?
Kathryn Eastwood was born on 2 February 1988, in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, USA, and is an actress as well as a writer, but perhaps best known for being the daughter of Clint Eastwood, an icon of the film industry.
The Net Worth of Kathryn Eastwood
How rich is Kathryn Eastwood? As of late-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $1 million, earned through a successful career in the entertainment industry. Her wealth has also likely been elevated by her father, who has an estimated net worth at $375 million. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Kathryn was born the second child of her father’s affair with her mother, a flight attendant named Jacelyn Reeves, which started while he was in a long-term relationship with actress Sandra Locke. The affair was kept secret for some time, until revealed by an article in the Star tabloid, which is reputed to have caused the relationship to crumble.
While the two children, Scott and Kathryn were Clint’s, he initially denied that he was their father. It wasn’t until the mother contested the claim and paternity tests were conducted that Clint eventually accepted that the two children were his. He raised them to work, and gave them few favors, hoping that they would find their own paths to success. Scott and Kathryn later credited him for helping them attain values they would have otherwise have squandered. Most of their father’s children from his various relationships would pursue a career in the entertainment industry and this would be the same for Kathryn.
Acting and Writing Career
Despite the overall fame of the Eastwood family, Kathryn remained a less well-known member, though she has worked on high profile film projects. One of her most notable came in 2014’s “Jersey Boys”, a musical film directed by her father and based on the Tony Award-winning musical of the same name, following the story of the group called “The Four Seasons”. Original band members were executive producers of the film, which was released to mixed reviews, but grossed $67 million worldwide.
Other projects she has worked on include the zombie-related film “American Virus” as a writer and star. One of her latest projects is another zombie flick – “Virus of the Dead” – in which she stars alongside Mhairi Calvey and Jessica Ann Brownlie, released in early 2018.
Father – Clint Eastwood
Kathryn’s father rose to fame as an actor, playing the Man with No Name in the “Dollars” trilogy during the peak of spaghetti Westerns during the 1960s. He followed this up with another notable role as the anti-hero cop Inspector Harry Callahan in five “Dirty Harry” films, which were released during the 1970s and ‘80s. During this period, he had established himself as an icon of masculinity, earning fame all around the world.
Eventually, he forayed into film work as a director, continuing his successful run with critically acclaimed work including “Unforgiven” and “Million Dollar Baby”. These films have won him numerous nominations, and an Academy Awards for Best Director as well as Best Picture. Other films that were commercial successes include “Every Which Way But Loose”, “Escape from Alcatraz”, “and “Gran Torino”. Other popular films he’s worked on include “Letters from Iwo Jima”, “American Sniper”, and “Invictus”. He’s been known for starring in many of his films, though there have been some exceptions.
Brother – Scott Eastwood
Kathryn’s brother Scott is the youngest son of Clint Eastwood, and is a model and actor, best known for appearing in numerous Clint Eastwood films such as “Flags of Our Fathers”, “Invictus”, and “Grand Torino”, which allowed him to gain enough traction in the industry to attain more roles outside of his father’s work, although he still had to audition for each one of his father’s films, and was even rejected during the casting for “American Sniper”. Some of his other popular projects include “Suicide Squad”, “The Fate of the Furious”, and “Pacific Rim Uprising”.
He is noted to bear a striking resemblance to his father, which was even more accentuated when he dressed up as Clint’s character in the film “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” during a Halloween charity event. He is also a model for the Davidoff fragrance Cool Water.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, not much is known about any of Kathryn’s romantic relationships. She has never shared any information publicly about any past or current boyfriends. It is not known if she is currently in a relationship, though several inside sources state that she is single, and still focused primarily on her career right now.
One of the reasons there is very little information about Kathryn’s endeavors is due to the lack of any online presence. She does not have accounts on any of the major social media websites. There are other accounts online that share her name, but are not related to her in any way.
