Actor Clint Eastwood misses the days when one could use racial humor with impunity. In fact, Eastwood thinks modern culture is humorless and that people take themselves far too seriously, he told George Lopez on 'Lopez Tonight.'

"I think one of the problems the country's in right now is everybody's taking themselves so seriously," Eastwood said. "It was much more fun years ago when everybody would joke about it. You'd just joke about what you are. You are what you are, and you have a good time with it."

Eastwood said his mature age puts him in a unique position to make such statements. "That's another thing about being past 70, is you really don't give a crap," he said, "so you just say what you feel."

Proving he's not above good, clean, racist fun himself, Eastwood presented Lopez with an early Christmas present -- a gift-wrapped leaf blower.
