Clint Eastwood is still a badass, and I would go as far as to say that he will remain that way until the day he dies. At age 78, the 4-time Oscar winning writer/director/producer/composer/all-around badass is still getting rave reviews for playing a man with a gun and some unchecked anger. In his latest film, Gran Torino, Eastwood plays an aging Korean War vet who finds it difficult to live with a new community of Asian neighbors. And as I said in my review, he puts on his scowl, picks up his gun and goes to work as he has for so many years.

In a recent interview with Esquire, Eastwood took time to look back on some of the things he’s learned in his 78 plus years on this Earth, even going as far as calling out the current generations as ‘the pussy generation':

We live in more of a pussy generation now, where everybody’s become used to saying, “Well, how do we handle it psychologically?” In those days, you just punched the bully back and duked it out. Even if the guy was older and could push you around, at least you were respected for fighting back, and you’d be left alone from then on.

I don’t know if I can tell you exactly when the pussy generation started. Maybe when people started asking about the meaning of life.

Absolutely perfect. Once again Clint reminds us that no matter how old he is, he would still kick all of our asses. Take that, Spike Lee.
