Five Things You Don’t Know About Francesca Eastwood

On August 7, Clint Eastwood and Frances Fisher's daughter Francesca turns 19. In the last year the beautiful, young blonde has become famous in her own right - starring with her step mom Dina and half-sister Morgan in the reality show "Mrs. Eastwood & Company" and acting as muse for her boyfriend Tyler Shields' extreme photographs. But there's more to learn about the "Dirty Harry" star's daughter, here are fine things you don't know about Francesca Eastwood.

1. Francesca Eastwood Has Done a Little Acting Herself

To date, Francesca has only acted in two projects and not surprisingly both were directed by her dad, Clint. In 1995 she appeared as Mary Day in "The Stars Fell on Henrietta" and four years later she played Kate Everett in "True Crime." To add to the feeling of nepotism, Francesca played her mom's movie daughter in "The Stars Fell on Henrietta" and her dad's onscreen daughter in "True Crime."

2. Francesca Eastwood Is a Jet Setter

On the first season of "Mrs. Eastwood & Company," Francesca was seen traveling quite a bit. There were the jaunts back and forth from Los Angeles to her family home in Carmel. She took a whirlwind trip to London with her photographer boyfriend, Tyler Shields. And she survived a family trip to Hawaii that saw major feuds between her stepmom Dina and her photo-snapping beau. Since the show ended, she hasn't seemed to put her carry on in the closet. On July 17, Eastwood tweeted that she was off to Russia with Shields.

3. Francesca Eastwood Escaped a Christmas Tragedy

Francesca did not have a holly jolly Christmas in 2001. Then eight years old, she was staying with her mom, Frances, in Vancouver, Canada, when a fire erupted in their home in the middle of the night. Francesca had to jump out a bedroom window, onto a garage roof and into the arms of a helpful neighbor - but luckily she didn't sustain any injuries. There'd be more fire related drama in Francesca's adult life. Earlier this year she received anonymous threats after burning a $100,000 Birkin Bag in a photo taken by Shields.

4. Francesca Eastwood Comes from a Big Family

"Mrs. Eastwood & Co." fans have already met Francesca's half-sister Morgan - a high school student who is the only daughter of Clint and Dina Eastwood. But Francesca has a really big family. Make-up artist Kimber Eastwood, 48, is the daughter of Clint Eastwood and Roxanne Tunis. 44-year-old composer Kyle wrote music for his dad's films "Million Dollar Baby" and "Gran Torino." Alison is an actress who can next be seen in the upcoming film "Shadow People." She shares the same mom as Kyle, Clint's first wife Maggie Johnson. The Oscar-winning director had son Scott and daughter Kathryn with flight attendant Jacelyn Reeves. Scott's an actor, too, with four movies in post production including "Epic" and Trouble with the Curve." 24-year-old Kathryn was Miss Golden Globes at the 62nd installment of the awards ceremony in 2005.

5. Francesca Eastwood Makes a Splash on the Red Carpet but Relaxes at the Movies

While the Internet was buzzing about Francesca's big splash on the "Total Recall" red carpet, the beautiful model was doing something decidedly unglamorous inside the event. While waiting for the movie to start, she tweeted, "At the total recall premiere eating m&ms. Excited to see this!" It's not the first time she took to Twitter to discuss her eating habits. Earlier in the week she noted, "Iv been drinking a lot of jamba juice lately."
