Alison Eastwood Biography

You can't ask for a much greater lineage than Hollywood icon and swimsuit model. These are the genes Alison Eastwood inherited, to everyone's delight, when she came into this world on May 22nd, 1972. Father Clint was already a full-blown celebrity and mother Maggie Johnson was an established goddess.

letting out the 'tude as a teen

Much less stoic and more of an extrovert than her dad, Alison was actually quite a rebellious teenager. Her small appearances in the films Bronco Billy and Tightrope (at 8 and 12 years old, respectively) proved that success could come easily, and she started to act, perhaps finding it difficult to deal with an absent father after her parents' divorce in 1978. Alison's hometown of Carmel, California, became somewhat of a playground: she rebelled, and her run-ins with the law culminated in a drunk-driving arrest for which she spent one night in jail.

striking a pose

Alison's ambition, however, took hold of her and she realized she had the skills to succeed in a number of areas. Modeling jobs started to fall in her lap and she did runway and magazine work in Paris, posing for several European fashion magazines and Vogue (U.S. edition).

career blossomed with purple rose

Her hard work extended to the film industry as well. She founded Purple Rose Productions and focused on creating personally gratifying films, whether they were independent or on a bigger scale. She has been in the process of making a Jean Harlow biopic called Bombshell, in which she plans to star as the legendary actress.

absolute success

Returning to film in 1997, Alison starred in Absolute Power with her father, followed by Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Smaller films came in 1998 and 1999: Black & White, Breakfast of Champions and Just a Little Harmless Sex.

After her appearance in the 2002 low-budget success Poolhall Junkies with Chazz Palminteri and Christopher Walken, Eastwood shed it all for Play..boy in February of the following year. Her clothing line, Eastwood Ranch, made (almost) as much news, thanks to the Western-styled sports and denim wear.

no rest just yet

Eastwood is next set to star in a horror flick called The Storyteller, as well as an action-romance called The Drummer, with Michael Madsen. Thanks to her hard work in a variety of fields, a considerable amount of talent, and incredible hotness, Eastwood has paved the way for a bright future.
