Clint Eastwood’s friendship with Elvis ‘He loved I was always armed’ | Films | Entertainment


Speaking previously with USA Today, Eastwood shared: “I was always wearing a gun. Presley loved to do fast draws and stuff, so we always did fast draws together. I liked him. He seemed like a good guy. Had a lot of guys hanging around, big entourage.

“I get a kick out of my wife, who is quite a few years younger. She’ll say, ‘Did you know Elvis Presley?’ I’ll say, ‘Sure’. ‘James Dean?’ ‘Yeah.’ ‘Bobby Darin?’ ‘Yeah’ She’ll look at some old picture of me and say, ‘What a babe!’ (Laughs) We were all hanging around at the same time, in the 1950s. We were all here in town, and all struggling in various things. I was doing Rawhide. There was a camaraderie among the younger group.” Elvis loved watching Eastwood’s movies and it turns out the Western legend ended up co-writing a song with The King’s ex inspired by their heartbreaking split.
