Clint Eastwood is talking about his appearance at the Republican National Convention.
The 82-year-old actor performed an unusual skit, talking to an imaginary President Obama in an empty chair on stage. Some criticized it as "bizarre."
In his first on-camera interview since the event, Eastwood told CNN he was not trying to disrespect the president.
He spoke to CNN during a promotional event for his new movie about baseball, "Trouble with the Curve."
