Michael McClure said he filed the petition on Monday on behalf of Dina Eastwood in Monterey County Superior Court in Northern California. McClure declined to comment about why Dina Eastwood, 48, a former television journalist, had filed for separation or if she would eventually seek a divorce. The Eastwoods married in 1996.

He won best director and best picture Oscars for the 1992 Western "Unforgiven" and the 2004 boxing drama "Million Dollar Baby." His most recent movie was 2012's "Trouble ...

  • 1994
    Age 46
    In 1994, Locke sued Eastwood for fraud, alleging that the deal with Warner was a sham–the studio had rejected all of the 30 or more projects she proposed, and never assigned her to direct any of their in-house projects.
    More Details Hide Details According to Locke's attorney, Eastwood committed "the ultimate betrayal" by arranging the "bogus" film directing deal as a way to keep her out of work. The case went to trial in 1996, but just minutes before a jury was to render a verdict in Locke's favor, Eastwood agreed to settle for an undisclosed amount. The outcome of the case, Locke said, sent a "loud and clear" message to Hollywood, "that people cannot get away with whatever they want to just because they're powerful." The case is used in some modern law-school contract textbooks to illustrate the legal concept of good faith. At the time of the victory, Locke had a separate pending action against Warner Bros. for allegedly harming her career by agreeing to the sham movie-directing deal that Eastwood had purportedly engineered. As had been the case with the previous lawsuit, this ended in an out-of-court settlement, in 1999. The agreement with Warner, Locke said, was "a happy ending" after "five years of torture."
