Clint Eastwood Puts Cinematic “Heart” Into ‘American Sniper’

Opening in select theaters December 25, American Sniper centers on U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper), a war vet who spent four tours of duty in Iraq. Known as the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history, Kyle’s autobiography (which the film is based on) spent 18 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.

Sienna Miller also stars as Kyle’s iron-willed wife Tara Kyle in the film, which is directed by Clint Eastwood.

During the American Sniper press conference Tara Kyle praised the dedication screenwriter Jason Hall, Bradley Cooper and Clint Eastwood had while making the film.

“I do know before they left, (Clint) stopped and he was a little choked up and said, ‘I just want you to know, that your story has my heart.’ I can’t ask for better than that – truly. I feel like this is about the heart of our men and women who serve and their families.”
