Clint Eastwood and wife Dina Separate, Report Says

Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood and his wife Dina have reportedly separated after 17 years of marriage.

Reality TV star Dina confirmed the news on Thursday, telling Us Weekly magazine she and her husband remain close but they have been living apart for some time.

When contacted about the reports, filmmaker Eastwood’s representative said, “I know nothing about that.”

The split news comes just four months after Dina reportedly checked into a rehabilitation clinic to tackle personal issues.

She and Clint married in 1996 and have one daughter together, 16-year-old Morgan, who appeared with her mother and half-sister Francesca in reality TV show, Mrs. Eastwood & Company, which aired last year.

This is Eastwood’s second union – he was married to first wife Maggie Johnson for almost 30 years before they divorced in 1984.

Shirley MacLaine to Receive 40th AFI Life Achievement Award

Sir Howard Stringer, Chair of the American Film Institute’s Board of Trustees, announced today the Board’s decision to honor Shirley MacLaine with the 40th AFI Life Achievement Award, the highest honor for a career in film.

The award will be presented to MacLaine at a gala tribute on Thursday, June 7, 2012 in Los Angeles, CA. TV Land will broadcast the 40th AFI Life Achievement Award tribute on TV Land later in June 2012. The event will celebrate MacLaine’s extraordinary life and all her endeavors – movies, television, Broadway, author and beyond.

“Shirley MacLaine is a powerhouse of personality that has illuminated screens large and small across six decades,” said Stringer. “From ingénue to screen legend, Shirley has entertained a global audience through song, dance, laughter and tears, and her career as writer, director and producer is even further evidence of her passion for the art form and her seemingly boundless talents. There is only one Shirley MacLaine, and it is AFI’s honor to present her with its 40th Life Achievement Award.”

Last year’s AFI Tribute brought together icons of the film community to honor Morgan Freeman. Sidney Poitier opened the tribute, and Clint Eastwood presented the award at evening’s end. Also participating were Casey Affleck, Dan Aykroyd, Matthew Broderick, Don Cheadle, Bill Cosby, David Fincher, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, Ashley Judd, Matthew McConaughey, Helen Mirren, Rita Moreno, Tim Robbins, Chris Rock, Hilary Swank, Forest Whitaker, Betty White, Renée Zellweger and surprise musical guest Garth Brooks.
