GQ‘s “Badass of the Year” Clint Eastwood is a straight shooter. The 79-year-old actor/director, whose latest film “Invictus” tells the true story of South African president and civil rights leader Nelson Mandela, candidly discussed his negative feelings toward modern America in the magazine.
“[The U.S. is] becoming more juvenile as a nation. The guys who won World War II and that whole generation have disappeared, and now we have a bunch of teenage twits. The world needs this kind of story nowadays. It’s just … everybody’s so screwed up. It seems like our country’s in kind of a morbid mood, because of the recession or whatever.”
