Clint Eastwood has found love once again, this time with Christina Sandera. Despite his numerous high-profile romances in the past, Eastwood has been relatively private about his relationship with Sandera, dating back to 2014.
The two reportedly met when Sandera was working at Eastwood’s Mission Ranch Hotel in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, a property he has owned for decades. Before Sandera, Eastwood had been married twice, first to model Maggie Johnson from 1953 to 1987, and later to news anchor Dina Ruiz from 1996 to 2004. He’s also had notable relationships with Titanic actress Frances Fisher and his The Gauntlet co-star Sondra Locke, resulting in a total of eight children, including actor Scott Eastwood.
Eastwood has been clear about his stance on discussing personal matters, stating in a 2004 interview with CBS News, “There are other people that are involved there and they’re vulnerable people. I can protect myself, but they can’t.”
Christina Sandera and Eastwood began their relationship in 2014 when she worked as a hostess at the Mission Ranch Hotel, a property Eastwood purchased in 1986 and transformed into a luxurious resort. Despite being a fixture at the hotel, Eastwood is known for keeping a low profile, as he mentioned in an interview with Architectural Digest in 2016.
Maintaining a private lifestyle, Sandera is not active on social media, and little is known about her beyond her relationship with Eastwood. The couple has chosen to lead a quiet life in Carmel-by-the-Sea, where Eastwood once served as the mayor.
Their relationship became public when they made their red carpet debut at the 2015 Academy Awards, where Eastwood’s film “American Sniper” received six nominations. The couple has since attended various events together, with Sandera accompanying Eastwood to screenings and film festivals.
Eastwood, known for not commenting on his personal life, especially his romantic relationships, has never publicly spoken about his relationship with Sandera. Despite this, the couple continues to make public appearances together.
In terms of marriage, Eastwood has expressed uncertainty. In 1983, during a long-term relationship with Sondra Locke, he mentioned doubts about remarrying after his first marriage ended. Although he did marry again, to newscaster Dina Ruiz, they divorced in 2016.
Sandera appears to have been accepted into Eastwood’s close-knit family. In 2018, she joined Eastwood and his entire family at the premiere of his film “The Mule.” Additionally, she was part of the celebration for Eastwood’s 90th birthday in May 2020, indicating a strong bond with his blended family.
