Sondra Locke: A Talented Actress Defined By Her Relationship with Clint Eastwood

Sondra Locke was an Oscar-nominated actress, a producer, director, and a talented singer. But it looks like it was her destiny to be linked to Clint Eastwood forever, even long after their 14-year relationship that lasted from the mid-70s to the late 80s. Locke, who passed away on November 3, 2018, had a lot to show for herself, but her tumultuous relationship with Eastwood overshadowed all that she brought to the table.

She was a charismatic actress with a tough and lean look who starred with her beau in popular movies like, ‘The Outlaw Josey Wales,’ ‘The Gauntlet,’ and ‘Every Which Way but Loose.’ The couple, however, became trapped in one of the most toxic relationships in Hollywood history. It was ugly, messy, and, sadly, abusive.

This is the story of love gone sour, and a professional/personal mentorship gone very wrong.
