Clint Eastwood: I Never Said I’d Kill Michael Moore, But It’s Not A Bad Idea

The biggest conservative name in Hollywood, Clint Eastwood had the room in stitches addressing the feud between himself and liberal documentary filmmaker, Michael Moore.

Eastwood appeared at “The Legend of Cinema Luncheon: A Salute to Clint Eastwood,” during CinemaCon 2015 at Caesars Palace where he answered a question about rumors he had threatened Moore.

Moore, most recently known for declaring American Sniper and hero, Chris Kyle, to be a “coward,” claimed that Eastwood had threatened his life at the National Board of Review Awards dinner in 2005. Moore reported that Eastwood said he would shoot him if he ever came to his house with a camera.

Eastwood denied that.

“Everybody’s saying I threatened to kill Michael Moore,” he stated. “That’s not true.”

After a pause he added, “It isn’t a bad idea.”

Eastwood clearly made the comments in a joking manner. USA Today reported that he said it with a laugh.

That report also indicates the crowd got the joke.

“The comment received rousing applause and laughter from the audience filled with theater owners at the national convention.”

How long before Moore makes a major commotion over the comments, hiding behind his Twitter account to hurl insults at the 84-year-old actor like an actual coward?
