Clint Eastwood’s Daughter: Not Voting for Mitt

{!hitembed ID=”hitembed_1″ width=”300″ height=”169″ align=”none” !}

Clint Eastwood’s daughter Francesca told TMZ that she won’t be voting for Mitt Romney, despite her father’s endorsement of the GOP candidate. When asked about her voting plans, Francesca

I happen to not be voting for the same man. But I love that he [my dad] stands up for what he believes in.

This will be Francesca’s first time voting; she is 18.

Francesca, her siblings and stepmother Dina Eastwood (not to be confused with Dina Lohan, troubled former child actress Lindsay Lohan’s equally troubled mother) are all part of a reality show Mrs. Eastwood & Company that follows Mrs. Eastwood as she tries to manage a boy-band and handle being the (very well-funded) mother of (very well-funded) teenagers. Poor Clint, no wonder he talks to empty chairs, his family sounds bonkers. But at least Francesca has her own opinion.

Disagreeing with one’s parents on politics is a normal part of being an adult whether in real life or on TV (remember Meathead, Rob Reiner’s character on All in the Family?). And gods know, I nearly ruined a family meal when my mother said that Marcos had been good for the Philippines! In what universe?! If the facepalm.jpg had existed back then, I would have thought it.

Back to Francesca–it remains to be seen if politics will play a part in Mrs. Eastwood & Company. Clint seems a bit nonplussed about his missus’ project, as evidenced by his appearance last month on Ellen. He also seemed a bit disenchanted with the GOP as well. And his distaste for Francesca’s boyfriend is very clear!
