Eastwood: I want to direct aged 105

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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Don't get involved with a hidden intrigue. The drama will be exciting at first, but eventually you will tire of keeping secrets. If someone is interested in you romantically, you shouldn't have to sneak around together. An oppressive work situation may tempt you to quit your job. Try not to discuss your plans with colleagues. You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
