Clint Eastwood is still breaking hearts at age 84. Barbara Walters denied the actor a dinner date in 1982, but admitted on Wednesday's The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon that she just recently attempted again to spark up a romance with him.
The former host of The View revealed that she had hoped that the Oscar winner's feelings for her had held up 32 years later when she decided to attend the premiere of his new movie Jersey Boys. "I thought maybe! Maybe it's not too late. I put on the right outfit. The false eyelashes -- the whole thing," Walters, 84, told Fallon.
Unfortunately for Babs, it didn't go as planned. "He was polite. He was courteous. What's that expression? He was just 'not that into me.'"
Recalling her opportunity missed all those years ago, she exclaimed, "I could have been Mrs. Clint Eastwood!"
