  • Quotes

    • Clint: I would like to branch out, try a serious leading role, not play the second-fiddle...but I am not sure that at this point, it would go over. I can play a drunk, a moron, and a bumbling idiot, so why not a axe murderer?

    • Clint: One of my favorite movies, is one that I was in, Rock & Roll High School. It was a cheesy movie from way back when that was o.k. Humor was wackier then, easier. Laughs were more hearty, more robust. Now, laughs are all about the same things, and are more contained.

    • Clint: I am in a happy relationship, and that is all that matters at the end of the day. The 'Ugliest Man' list, the 'Stupidest Movie', all that takes a back seat when you are happy in your own skin.

    • Clint: Hey, I was a child actor, I didn't go ballistic when the lights faded out, oh wait! They haven't faded yet... maybe the worst is yet to come.

    • Clint: I knew that the MTV Movie Award was supposed to be a joke, but I was proud, and I accepted it with my head up. I got a standing ovation! My brother was there, I had a blast!

    • Clint: I can't say that it doesn't sting when I hear people call me the 'loser brother', but I am learning to look at what I have under my belt, not what comes out of their mouths. I have been in over 30 movies, and a hundred shows...what do YOU have going on?
