Eastwood impressed with Jolie's acting skills

Clint Eastwood has only compliments for his leading lady Angelina Jolie.

The veteran film-maker chose her to star in his latest film, 'Changeling', because she was perfect for the part.

“I didn’t know Angelina very well before doing this. I met her on a few occasions,” he admitted at the film’s press conference at the New York Film Festival.

“I always thought of her as a very interesting actress, a very good actress, and then in recent years of course, she’s had so much publicity. An awful lot of people get in magazines and it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re talented, but in her case, she is really talented.”
