  • 15. Clint Eastwood will always be remembered for being the icon for macho movie characters. The dirty harry movies especially are a great example of his " macho type character. Great quote from Dirty Harry:   I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk? Besides being a great actor and director, Clint Eastwood is a normal average guy .
