Clint Eastwood says he achieved what he sought to do when he appeared at the Republican National Convention last month and had a nearly 12-minute dialogue with an empty chair.

In an interview published Friday in the Carmel Pine Cone, a small California newspaper, the 82-year-old said he didn't know what he was going to say until he said it. He told the paper he wanted to make three points, one of which was that President Barack Obama had broken promises he made when he took office.

Eastwood's peculiar, sometimes rambling conversation with an imaginary Obama in the empty chair set the blogosphere and social media ablaze. Eastwood was at the convention to show his support for Mitt Romney.

Eastwood's manager, Leonard Hirshan, says he wasn't aware of the article.
