Veteran Hollywood star Clint Eastwood is to receive an humanitarian award from the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA).

The actor-turned-director will be the first ever recipient of the Jack Valenti Humanitarian Award, named after the MPAA's chief.

Dan Glickman, MPAA chairman says: "(Eastwood has) for decades exemplified decency and goodness of spirit in his moviemaking."

Referring to 76-year-old Eastwood's recent works, Flags Of Oor Fathers and the Oscar-nominated Letters From Iwo Jima, Glickman praised the star for his heartfelt film-making ability.

He says: "These films exemplify the true power of movies to tell human stories and inspire national conversation."
