The Oscars was a big night for Clint Eastwood; not only was his film American Sniper nominated for six awards, but he also chose to make his first red carpet appearance with his new girlfriend Christina Sandera. The couple were first linked back in June when they were spotted shopping together in LA, but they hadn't been photographed together at an official event until they arrived together at the Academy Awards on Sunday evening.

The 84-year-old Hollywood icon looked smart in a black tuxedo as he made his way inside The Dolby Theatre with Christina on his arm. She made her Oscars debut in an elegant long-sleeved navy gown that featured a deep V-neckline, and wore her blonde hair around her shoulders. Though they haven't officially confirmed their romance, the couple looked very happy together as they posed outside the awards ceremony.
Christina worked as a hostess in Clint's Mission Ranch Hotel in Carmel when they started dating. It is the second romance for the famed director since his split from his wife of 17 years, Dina Eastwood, in August 2013.
Following the end of his marriage, Clint was briefly linked to photographer Erica Tomlinson-Fisher but their relationship ran its course. "She hasn't been around in a while," a source said of Erica last June to US Weekly. "He is with Christina and happy."

What's more, Christina seems to have made a big impression on Clint's children – including actor and model Scott Eastwood and actress Francesca Eastwood. "Clint's kids have all met Christina and like (her)," the same insider confirmed. "The kids all say she is 'normal'."
Clint was married to Dina from 1996 until December 2014, when their divorce was finalised. Prior to that, he was married to Maggie Johnson, from 1953 until 1984, and had two long-term relationships, with Sondra Locke and Frances Fisher. The Dirty Harry star is a father to seven children.
