Clint Eastwood stars in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly in 1966
The world of show business marks another birthday for California-born icon Eastwood. Twitter was filled with tributes to the academy award-winning director, including Warner Bros. India, who wished the star a happy return on her special day. While Eastwood will no doubt make the special milestone with his family and close friends, when it comes to the wealth behind the Hollywood heavyweight, it’s sometimes unclear how much and what he’s spent his fortune on.
A new April report from Wealthy Gorilla estimates that since his first uncredited role in the debut film Revenge of the Creature in 1955, Eastwood, sometimes dubbed the “richest cowboy in the world,” has amassed a fortune of around $375. million (£297 million).
His wealth has undoubtedly been enhanced by the star’s brilliant catalog of films, which has cemented his status as one of the most important pin-ups in cinema history.
In addition to performances in such films as Dirty Harry, Million Dollar Baby, and Gran Torino, Eastwood cemented his status among theatergoers in the legendary spaghetti westerns of the 1960s.
He starred in all three Sergio Leone Dollars movies, including the Man with No Name, earning Eastwood some of his earliest critical acclaim.

It’s not just a property that Eastwood has invested in, though, as he has a thriving collection of vehicles.
Justrichest.com reports that Eastwood counts vehicles like a Ford Roadster, a Lincoln K-Series Convertible, an Austin Healey, and a Cadillac Eldorado Series 62 Convertible among his treasure trove of automobiles.
Other vehicles he owns include a Jaguar XK150 Roadster, a Gran Tarino, a Morris Mini Countryman ‘Cooper S’ and a Fiat 500e.
However, the American has also given back to the community, showing his altruistic side by making sure to give back to those most in need, including building homes.
Reports suggest that during the previous decade, Eastwood and his partner Andy Williams invested significant funds in the purchase of land in California.

On this they ordered the construction of 90 homes, which would eventually be sold to the public in 2019.
As a result of the expected sales, Eastwood and Williams were able to ensure that the remainder of the vast land remained in its natural state, including a 2,000-acre nature preserve.
Williams said at the time: “We thought someone could take the land and make it a much more congested area or just not take care of it.
“I thought, one day people will want some privacy and they’ll get tired of living crammed next to each other. And that’s it.”

Williams added: “[Clint’s] The goal was to create enough development and economic value for it to become self-sufficient and people to take care of it.”
Eastwood has won four Oscars in his career, including two for Best Director (Million Dollar Baby and Unforgiven), as well as Best Picture for the same films.
He was nominated for seven other Academy Awards.
