The shoots with Eastwood

“When you are in a Clint Eastwood movie you don’t even know the camera is rolling. And you just hear over your shoulder ‘Okay. Go ahead…’, says the actor. Although the normal thing in a film shoot is start acting upon hearing the word “Action”, it seems that the director opts for a calmer phrase.

“Sometimes, you’re liking it and you keep doing it… Until you hear him say‘It’s enough’. And that’s it. After that, you turn the page and go to the next scene. It’s intimidating as hell“, says Hanks between the laughter of his companions and the public.

During his anecdote they ask him if he is always like this. “Yes, although she does sometimes say ‘Stop.’ If you need to do it again. But the rest of the time, yes, she says ‘That’s enough’. It’s like, ‘Hey, thanks for the vote of confidence!'” the actor jokes.

Why do you lead like this?

Some Eastwood fans have recounted the reason why he has a habit of saying that. Since the director has shot many western movies where horses were used, Eastwood knows that the directors’ cries of “action” made the animals nervous. That’s why, when he started directing he decided to eliminate the famous “action” or “cut” to a simple “We’re ready”, in a soft tone.

For this Proyect, Hanks put himself under orders from Eastwood, a shoot that claims to “remember forever”.
