15 Multi-Talented Directors Who Starred In Their Own Movies
Clint Eastwood: Million Dollar Baby
Certainly not his first or last film as a director/actor combo, Clint Eastwood brought tears to many viewers’ eyes with his epically incredible and heartbreaking boxing film, Million Dollar Baby. The spaghetti Western star played opposite Hilary Swank and Morgan Freeman as old and cranky (a popular role for him these days) boxing trainer, Frankie Dunn, who runs a gym in Los Angeles. The movie won Best Picture at the Academy Awards along with three other categories. Other movies of his that feature dual credits include Gran Torino and The Outlaw Josey Wales.
