Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood
has branded politicians "sell outs" after serving as a small-town mayor in the 1980s.
The Dirty Harry
star, 78, governed Californian beach haven Carmel-by-the-sea
from 1986 to 1988. however, the actor insists it was as high as his political ambitions go.
He says, "I enjoyed being Mayor of Carmel, but you do see that it is very difficult to get things done. You just have to lose your soul. You have to bulls**t people. You have to deal with people you don't care for and will never be friends with, so you kind of sell yourself out to be a politician. You have to kiss it up with the world. That ain't (sic) my style."
