Clint Eastwood directed Angelina Jolie in 2008’s impressive thriller Changeling, and now the legendary actor/director is sharing some tips with the Academy Award-winning actress as she prepares to step behind the camera for the first time.
“My advice for her is to get more sleep than the actors,” Clint told People at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of his latest film, Hereafter.
“And to have good management - know what you want and know what you are looking for and go after it.”
Angelina will begin work on her feature film directorial debut this fall. The film, based on an original untitled screenplay by the talented mother of six, is the story of a Bosnian woman and Serbian military man who fall in love during the Bosnian war.
Eastwood, who has directed over 30 films, said he has no doubt Jolie will find success behind the camera too.
“She’s a very intelligent gal,” he told the mag. “I know she’ll do great... She has great a work ethic and she’s very smart. I’m looking forward to seeing what she does.”
