Clint Eastwood was criticized by Spike Lee for not hiring any black actors in his two World War II movies, “Flags of Our Fathers” and “Letters From Iwo Jima.” Clint shoots him back.
He told Britain’s The Guardian “A guy like him should shut his face.Has he ever studied history?”
Lee have doubts that there will any black people in “The Changeling” too.
Clint furious and said “What are you going to do . . . make it look like a commercial for an equal opportunity player? I’m not in that game.I’m playing it the way I read it historically, and that’s the way it is. When I do a picture and it’s 90 percent black, like ‘Bird,’ I use 90 percent black people.”
