Japan honors Clint Eastwood in spring decorations
Wednesday 29th April, 08:07 AM JST
U.S. actor and film director Clint Eastwood and the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Wangari Maathai are among 70 foreign recipients from 32 countries of this year’s spring decorations by the Japanese government, the Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.
Eastwood is hailed for boosting mutual understanding between Japan and the United States through production of smash-hit, award-winning movies. In 2006, he released two movies on a fierce World War II battle between Japan and the United States—‘‘Flags of Our Fathers’’ and ‘‘Letters from Iwo Jima.’’Maathai, 69, will receive the Grand Cordon of the Order of the Rising Sun, while Eastwood, 78, will be given the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold Rays with Neck Ribbon.
