Francesca Eastwood joins a long line of celebrity offspring to receive nepotism's most prestigious honor
Hooray for nepotism.
One of Clint Eastwood's daughters, Francesca Eastwood, has been named Miss Golden Globe for this January's awards show. She joins a long list of celebrity offspring including Rumer Willis (Demi Moore and Bruce's little girl) and Lorraine Nicholson (the apple of Jack's eye) in receiving the honor. Other past Miss Golden Globes include Melanie Griffith (daughter of Peter Griffith and Tippi Hedren) and Laura Dern (daughter of Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd).
Francesca Eastwood is the daughter of Eastwood and actress Frances Fisher. She is the second Eastwood to become a Miss Golden Globe – her half sister Kathryn Eastwood, daughter of Clint Eastwood and Jacelyn Reeves, received the title in 2005.
“I have watched the Golden Globes ceremonies since I was a little girl, and it means so much to me to be a part of one of Hollywood’s most illustrious events," Francesca Eastwood said in a statement.
The 19-year-old actress has appeared in her father's movies, including "True Crime," and can currently be seen on the E! reality show "Mrs. Eastwood and Company," which shows her living a life of Carmel-by-the-Sea opulence along with her famous family and the South African band Overtone.
The duties of a Miss Golden Globe are somewhat nebulous, but they involve assisting with the highly rated awards show, cooking up a cure for world hunger and working on a vaccine for avian flu (OK, some of that may not be true).
