Clint Eastwood doesn't care if you think he's odd because of his "invisible Obama" routine at the 2012 Republican National Convention. "Seemed odd at the time. But, you know, I'm an odd person," he said.

In an interview with CNBC, Eastwood spoke about the attention surrounding his speech, in which he addressed a chair with an invisible President Obama. "One thing about getting into the senior status of life, like I am, you don't really care," he joked. "You just say what you say and then you get away with it."
