AWARD-WINNING Clint Eastwood had a 14-year relationship with Roxanne Tunis.
On August 7, 2023, it was revealed that his 93-year-old lover – and his daughter’s mother – had died in secret in late June.
Who was Clint Eastwood’s ex, Roxanne Tunis?
Roxanne Tunis was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, on April 13, 1930.
She was an actress and dancer known for being featured in a number of Clint Eastwood movies including:
- Take Her, She’s Mine (1963)
- Hang ’Em High (1968)
- Breezy (1973)
- Every Which Way But Loose (1978)
The pair began their relationship in 1964, while Eastwood was married to his first wife, Maggie Johnson, and while Tunis was married to the late Jack Watson Scheck Jr.
Eastwood and Tunis’ affair lasted 14 years and they did little to hide their affection for one another.
“Roxanne worshipped the ground he walked on,” a close source told RadarOnline.com.
“She didn’t give a damn about the fact that Clint was a star. She was never impressed with all the money and fame. All she ever wanted was to have and to hold Clint Eastwood the man.”
Did Tunis and Eastwood have children?
Tunis became embroiled in a Hollywood incident in 1964 after naming Eastwood as the father on her daughter’s birth certificate.
During their not-so-private, long-term relationship, the couple had one child together, Kimber Lynn Eastwood, 59.
Kimber is a talented film and television makeup artist, producer, and performer.
In her father’s huge film, Absolute Power, she notably played a White House tour guide.
Eastwood has eight children in total, including Laurie, Kyle, Alison, Scott, Kathryn, Francesca, and Morgan.
His son, Kyle, and daughter, Alison, are from his first marriage to Johnson, and his youngest daughter, Morgan, is from his second marriage to Dina Eastwood.
What was Roxanne Tunis’ cause of death?
RadarOnline.com claimed in August 2023 that Tunis died on June 23.
“My mom passed away after a brief illness… she loved painting, drawing, writing, and traveling,” Kimber told the site.
“She was a loving daughter, mother, grandmother, sister, friend, and devout Christian.” “Our lives have been forever altered.”
She went on to say that her father “is just as sad as I am” and that he has extended his sympathies to her and his grandson.
