‘So come on, Clint,’ Wogan asked him chummily. ‘How is it that you’re so cool?’ To which Eastwood responded by taking out a cigarette, flicking it up in the air, striking a match on the heel of his shoe, and then lighting the cigarette while catching it between his lips on its descent. After taking the first puff, he growled, ‘I dunno, Terry. I guess it just happened that way.’

Style: You’re physically coordinated and know how to dress. Rebellion: You question authority. Recklessness: You value present pleasure over future health. Rootlessness: You travel. A lot. Promiscuity/Celibacy: The point is that you’re not into the whole monogamous commitment thing. Self-expression: You’re somehow an artist. Flamboyance/Austerity: Either will do. Taciturnity/Eloquence: You make words count. Emotional self-control: You’re pretty relaxed. You rarely lose it.
