President Barack Obama Says He's a 'Huge Fan' of Clint Eastwood

Originally posted 09/02/2012 03:25PM

While it's not being said that Clint Eastwood made President Obama's day, the chief executive does own up to being "a huge fan" of the actor-filmmaker – who last week delivered a long and much-discussed prime-time presentation on stage at the Republican National Convention that was critical of the current administration.

"He is a great actor, and an even better director," the President told USA Today in an interview aboard Air Force One. "I think the last few movies that he's made have been terrific."

The newspaper then asked point blank if Obama took offense at what Eastwood did – speaking to an empty chair that was meant to represent Obama's sitting there and responding to the screen legend's pointed questions.

Oprah on Obama: 'I Cried My Eyelashes Off'

Originally posted 08/29/2008 09:20AM

He's only just become the official Democratic nominee, but it seems Barack Obama already has the celebrity vote sewn up.

His moving acceptance speech at Denver's 2008 Democratic National Convention was watched by a bevy of cheering stars Thursday night.

One of the most moved? Oprah Winfrey, a longtime supporter, who told the Associated Press, "I cried my eyelashes off."

"I think it's the most powerful thing I have ever experienced," added the daytime queen, comparing his words to Martin Luther King Jr.'s iconic "I Have a Dream Speech." (Fitting, then, that Obama's prime-time speech fell on the 45th anniversary of the civil rights leader's famous address.)

But she was not alone in her praise. Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie called the speech "amazing," while Jessica Alba found it "incredible."
