Eastwood on GOP Convention speech: "I was just having fun"

(CNN) -- Clint Eastwood isn't taking much time to reflect on his unique endorsement of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney at last month's Republican National Convention, after all he says if they're "dumb enough" to ask him, they'll take what they get.

"If somebody is dumb enough to ask me to go to political convention and say something, they're gonna have to take what they get," said Eastwood in an interview Tuesday, September 17th with the television show "Extra" about the convention speech that won rave reviews, puzzled looks and slacked jaws.

In ad-libbed remarks that sent the Twitterverse and political commentators questioning the sanity of both the famed actor/director and the Romney campaign, Eastwood appeared on stage as Tampa's "mystery" guest with an empty chair and proceeded to chide an invisible President Barack Obama for what the Hollywood legend billed as a disappointing four years.

"People loved it or hated it and that's fine," said Eastwood of the speech. "That's what it was supposed to be... I was just having fun."

But would he do it again?

"I don't know. I never look backwards. It's done and it's done," said Eastwood though he "probably would."

As for the origins of the act, Eastwood said he stole the idea from himself adding that he previously did a similar skit while speaking at a funeral for a friend.
