Early Life and Cameos
Morgan is the daughter of Clint Eastwood and news anchor Dina Ruiz, who were married from 1996 to 2013. Despite the fame that her father’s career brought, Morgan lived in a relatively normal environment, though her family situation was quite unusual due to the many relationships and children her father had with other women. She grew up with half siblings including Francesca Eastwood, Kathryn Eastwood, Scott Eastwood and Alison Eastwood.
All of Clint’s children including Morgan would be involved in his work in some shape or form. In 2008, she made a cameo appearance in one of Eastwood’s films entitled “Changeling”, which starred Angeline Jolie and is based on real life events, particularly the 1928 Wineville Chicken Coop Murders. In the film, the main character is reunited with her son who she realizes is not really her missing child, but when she tries to contest the situation, she is billed as delusional and mentally unfit. The film received a lot of critical acclaim, and is included in the list of one of Clint’s more popular works.
