As the daughter of one of Hollywood's most prolific actor/directors, and star of realty TV show Mrs. Eastwood & Company chronicling the lives of her extended family, Francesca Eastwood is well used to being in the eye of the storm.
But Clint Eastwood's 18-year-old daughter is on the receiving end of vicious public outcry after a photographic stunt with her artist boyfriend Tyler Shields backfired.
Eastwood and Shields - known for his work with video portraits and celebrity photography - decided to publicly demolish a $100,000 crocodile Hermès Birkin bag by setting it on fire before taking a chainsaw to it, all in the name of art.

Should have used a Koran
These people are terminally bored.
Which makes them terminally boring.
They can do as they like, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
I don’t care about the artsy-fartsy crap, but if it was her bag she could crap in it and feed it back to the crocs, for all I care. Just gave a job to croc-bag maker and a hunter, skinner and a tanner.
Oh, the Hand-baggery!!
Would it make Mrs. S. weep?
This kind of crapart is about as worthwhile as watching Steve O from Jackass shoot bottle rockets out of his butt.
On second thought, it’s less worthwhile.
(By the way - I had the tagline a long time before this stunt. Even Ween was ahead of curve as opposed to this vacuous duo.)
Take off the Hermes label, and the handbag is only worth $500...
Hang Em High.
She has no Hermès bags, only scarves. Thank God!
No she pretty much just wears her Blueberry lately. Sometimes her Channel
for dressy stuff. Her Jimmy Shoe, Goochi and Louie Futons stay in the closet.
I hid her Sacks card...
It's all fun and games until someone wrecks a handbag.
All this righteous indignation over the destruction of a $100k bag, but not a raised eyebrow over a *$100k* bag. Looks like the bag-burners are the ones who had a better idea of the true value and use for the idol er bag, although they surely could have picked up its twin at a flea market for $10... :-)
Mrs. Eastwood is even more vapid than Kris Kardashian.
I did not think that was even possible.
In attempting to educate us unwashed peasants about “art,” she unwittingly revealed herself for an utter fool, in that she paid $100,000 for a satchel to carry her tampons in.
And she also pointed up the duplicity of a cadre of elitists who berate the common folks for neglecting the poor and downtrodden, while she and her friends vainly waste $100K on a self-indulgent stunt. That $100K could have fed a few starving peasants for years.
Ah, the ageless art of large-scale panty-knotting.
She should have spent it on vodka, heroin, and a sex change, like a normal celebrity kid.
I suspect that was the point of the whole affair. I am sure that the first thing most people thought when they read this was "How can a handbag be worth 100K"? By destroying the handbag in such a frivolous manner, they are rejecting the notion that it has such a value, although they had to pay 100K to do it.
BF bought me a fake Pravda at the flea market for $10 (he actually thought it was real!).
