Has a shark been jumped?

Clint Eastwood has been awarded an honor previously given to Jerry Lewis.

Hollywood star Clint Eastwood has been presented with the highest civilian distinction in France, Legion d’honneur, at a ceremony in Paris.

President Jacques Chirac told the 76-year-old — known for films such as Dirty Harry — that he embodied “the best of Hollywood”.

He also paid tribute to Eastwood’s “immense talent as an actor” and “genius as a director”.

And the actor occupied an “exceptional place” in the world of cinema, he said.

Anyone else, I’d say he jumped the shark. But this is Clint.
