Clint Eastwood to Donate 'Hereafter' Money to Japan Tsunami Survivors

Although the film was recently pulled from Japan, the director of the movie has stated he will give away money from the DVD sales to help aid efforts in the country.

Clint Eastwood has offered to donate money from the DVD sales of his latest movie "Hereafter (2010)" to help aid efforts in Japan, just days after the film was pulled from cinemas in the country due to its tsunami scenes.

The veteran actor-director's latest film, starring Matt Damon, was removed from movie theaters in Japan in the aftermath of the earthquake and tidal wave which devastated the country's east coast last Friday, March 11.

The scenes featuring a character who survives the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami were deemed to be "inappropriate" in light of recent events. Eastwood and bosses at the Warner Bros. studio have now stepped forward and offered to help those affected by the disaster by donating money from the film's DVD and Blue-ray sales to the Japanese Red Cross Society.

"The devastation and loss Japan is facing is almost incomprehensible," a statement from the "Dirty Harry" star reads. "I'm glad to join Warner Bros. in this effort to help the Japanese people."

"Our hearts and prayers go out to the people of Japan," Kevin Tsujihara, president of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group, adds. "We are committed to supporting relief and rebuilding efforts during this difficult time."
