Ann Romney admits Clint Eastwood's empty chair speech was 'funny' at the RNCAdd to Favorites | Access Hollywood Live
The hosts asked her about her husband, the campaign and family life and also how she felt about her well-received speech at August's Republican National Convention. "I wanted to speak from my heart and I wanted people to listen from their hearts," Romney says. "I felt like I accomplished that, so I was happy."
She also reveals that the speech was her first time using a teleprompter, but Mitt gave her some tips and the campaign arranged a couple of days of practice so she could get comfortable.
As for Clint Eastwood's more controversial speech, which famously involved the Oscar-winning icon conversing with an invisible Barack Obama, Romney simply said it was Clint being Clint.
"[Clint] was funny," Romney says. "You have to know, he's a unique guy and he did a unique thing. We didn't know what he was gonna do, but you can't script Clint Eastwood."
"He's a very strong person that is very respected," Romney adds about Eastwood. "We were just delighted to have his endorsement."
