Clint Eastwood sees his directing career stretching out for another two decades

Clint Eastwood may be 82 years old, but he dreams of making films for two more decades.

In a wide-ranging interview Saturday about film directing at the Tribeca Film Festival, Eastwood said he admires the 104-year-old Portuguese director Manoel de Oliveira.

Eastwood said: "It would be great to be 105 and still making films."

He laughed and called such a hope "the ultimate optimism".

The Million Dollar Baby and Unforgiven director joined fellow filmmaker Darren Aronofsky for a staged conversation at the New York film festival following a screening of Richard Schickel's documentary Eastwood Directs: The Untold Story.
