Three weeks ago, Clint Eastwood shared the spotlight with a single chair.

On Wednesday night, he shared it with 16.

The 82-year-old Oscar winner walked the press gauntlet at the Los Angeles premiere of his latest film "Trouble With the Curve" - with the empty chairs right behind him.

They were simply set dressing: bleacher seats lined up along the green carpet at the premiere for "Trouble With the Curve," a family drama about a fading baseball-scout father played by Eastwood and his estranged daughter, played by Amy Adams.

When it was pointed out to him the Oscar winner laughed.

On Aug. 30, Eastwood stood on stage at the Republican National Convention berating an empty chair, representing President Barack Obama.
