Dina Eastwood filed for legal separation from the Oscar winner last month.

The Eastwoods have been married since March 1996 and lived in Carmel. They met when she was assigned to interview the 83-year-old actor for her TV news station.

Clint Eastwood was previously married to Maggie Johnson from 1953 to 1984.
