When Sondra Locke was cast opposite Clint Eastwood in the 1976 Civil-War movie set The Outlaw Josey Wales, she had no idea her life was about to change. The two of them began to date and soon after, moved into a Bel-Air mansion together, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She went on to star in several movies alongside her beau.

Everything seemed okay until 14 years later when Locke realized that her life with Clint was a far cry from what she'd hoped it would be. By 1989, not only did their relationship turn absolutely sour and beyond repair, but it also ended in two lawsuits.

According to a report by Guardian, her relationship with Eastwood was one of the most toxic relationships given that there was an overlap between the personal and professional. Also, when Eastwood got Locke pregnant, he forced her to get an abortion because he believed the time was just not right for kids as their lifestyle was not meant for it, per Independent
