How Jacelyn Reeves Became Clint Eastwood’s Mistress

A young and beautiful Jacelyn Reeves met Eastwood on board a flight. Clint Eastwood was already a very familiar name in the Hollywood film industry as he is a talented actor and director who eventually also became a businessman and politician.

Although he was still married to his first wife Maggie Eastwood at the time, he started a secret affair with the young flight attendant. The said affair was first reported in 1990 by Star publications and prompted a chain of reactions, including one from Sondra Locke, who felt cheated because Clint was living with her at the time he began dating Reeves.

Locke went a step further when she mentioned their relationship in her autobiography titled ”The Good, the Bad, and the Very Ugly” which was published in 1997.

While no specific reason was given for Reeves and Clint’s refusal to tie the knot before their relationship ended in 1990, it is believed the split had to do with Clint’s political ambitions at that time because he was the Mayor of Carmel, California. Also, although he was separated from his first wife, he had not legally divorced her.
