奧斯卡金獎導演克林伊斯威特(Clint Eastwood)近日與兒子史考特(伊斯威特Scott Eastwood)共同接受了君子雜誌(Esquire)的專訪，暢談他對許多人事物的看法。幾個關於美國當前政治及社會的敏感問題，他更是直言不諱，尤其以下幾個問答內容恐有一定爭論(原文問答在上，中文節錄編譯在下)。
Q: Your characters have become touchstones in the culture, whether it's Reagan invoking "Make my day" or now Trump … I swear he's even practiced your scowl.
A: Maybe. But he's onto something, because secretly everybody's getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That's the kiss-ass generation we're in right now. We're really in a pussy generation. Everybody's walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren't called racist. And then when I did Gran Torino, even my associate said, "This is a really good script, but it's politically incorrect." And I said, "Good. Let me read it tonight." The next morning, I came in and I threw it on his desk and I said, "We're starting this immediately."
答：或許吧，但他還是有些不錯的想法，因為私底下大家都已經厭倦政治正確的表態，我們現在就處於一個逢迎作態的世代(kiss-ass generation)，這真的是個娘炮世代(pussy generation)，每個人講話都小心翼翼。動輒看到有人被指控種族歧視之類的，在我成長的年代，那些言行都不會被認為是種族歧視的表現。當我在籌拍經典老爺車時(Gran Torino)，我的同事說：「這是個很好的劇本，但卻政治不正確。」然後我說：「好，讓我今晚來看看。」隔天早上，我進辦公室把劇本丟在他桌上說：「我們現在立刻就開始進行這案子。」
Q: What is the "pussy generation"?
A: All these people that say, "Oh, you can't do that, and you can't do this, and you can't say that." I guess it's just the times.
Q: What do you think Trump is onto?
A: What Trump is onto is he's just saying what's on his mind. And sometimes it's not so good. And sometimes it's … I mean, I can understand where he's coming from, but I don't always agree with it.
Q: But if the choice is between her and Trump, what do you do?
A: That's a tough one, isn't it? I'd have to go for Trump … you know, 'cause she's declared that she's gonna follow in Obama's footsteps. There's been just too much funny business on both sides of the aisle. She's made a lot of dough out of being a politician. I gave up dough to be a politician. I'm sure that Ronald Reagan gave up dough to be a politician.
Q: Politically, you're the Anti-Pussy party?
A: Yeah, I'm anti–the pussy generation. Not to be confused with pussy.
