Clint Eastwood has been in the news quite a bit lately, mainly about his politics.

But on Wednesday night he stole the show again at the premiere of his latest feature film in Westwood, California.

In his newest film, "Trouble with the Curve", the 82-year-old Oscar winner plays an aging Baseball scout who spends the latter days of his profession on the road with his estranged daughter, played by Amy Adams. Justin Timberlake is also in the film as Adams' love interest, while John Goodman's character is Eastwood's manager and good friend.

Clint Eastwood made political headlines three weeks ago with his speech on Aug. 30 in which he stood on stage at the Republican National Convention berating an empty chair that was meant to represent President Barack Obama.

Representatives from Warner Bros. politely requested that press not ask about Eastwood's RNC appearance as not to overshadow the film on its big night.

"I don't know," replied "Curve" director Robert Lorenz about the request. "Some people may come and some people may not because of it. But, in the end, it's not a political movie. Myself, the other cast (members), we all have different political ideas. We all came together and put those aside. So, I hope people treat it as such."

Eastwood has addressed his appearance at the convention with the media, but the incident hasn't left mainstream consciousness. During the opening season premiere of "Saturday Night Live", comic actor Bill Hader recreated Eastwood's empty-chair routine.

There were no hard feelings as Eastwood said he saw the "SNL" skit and presumably enjoyed it by giving praise to Hader.

"Trouble with the Curve" hits theaters this Friday.
