Even the sharks didn't dare touch him...

Clint Eastwood is one lucky punk.

The man who gave us the immortal line: “You’ve gotta ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya punk?” was nearly shark food.

The Dirty Harry star and director of American sniper revealed he plunged into shark infested waters after a plane crash in the 1950s.

Eastwood, who made his name playing badass movie characters, had hitched a ride in a military bomber which plummeted into the ocean.

He later found out the crash site was a shark breeding ground.

The Hollywood heavyweight revealed the amazing near-death experience during an interview with the the Loyola Marymount University School of Film & TV.

Could you be more of a badass Clint?
