In 2007, Eastwood recalled their first meeting: “She did an interview with me…[and] we got along really well and I think we flirted a little bit because she brought the movie back to KSBW and one of her associates said, “You’re going to marry him.” Then we attended an event in Spanish Bay and [one of the hosts] said, “Do you mind sitting with Dina Ruiz?” I said no! Not at all!’ We ended up holding hands and doing all that nonsense and then we started dating and we’re still dating. … She is a very open-hearted person. It’s one of those things you can’t put your finger on because it’s pheromones or something.’
