Clint Eastwood didn’t let Southern California wildfires keep him Warner Bros. lot despite evacuation: ‘We’re here working!’

Clint Eastwood wasn’t going to let a wildfire keep him from getting to work.

The 89-year-old actor/director tells Ellen on Monday’s episode of how he drove toward a Southern California wildfire last month that was encroaching the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, California, where his office has been for 40 years.

Ellen described the November 10 blaze, known as the Barham brush fire, as a ‘really bad fire that came really close to the lot,’ adding that ‘air quality was so bad that everyone evacuated’ – but not Clint!

‘I was coming back down to do some work at a sound stage and I saw all this smoke going,’ the screen legend said, adding he noticed the smoke plumes emanated from the Warner Bros. lot.

The Tinseltown staple continued: ‘And I’m getting closer and closer and its Warner Bros. and its smoke and I got almost up there and I thought, the whole studio’s burning down, maybe I’ll go in and see if I can retrieve something.’

The filmmaker of classics such as Million Dollar Baby, Mystic River and Unforgiven said that the Warner Bros. studio was spared of any damage, as the blaze was contained to a nearby hill.

‘So we went on the sound stage and started working and we forgot about it and … everybody said, “The studio’s been evacuated! And I said, “We’re not evacuated, we’re here working!”‘
