It was a family affair at the debut of Clint Eastwood’s latest film, Blood Work, in Burbank, California on Tuesday night, with the big screen tough guy hitting the red carpet along with his wife and two of his daughters.

Dina Eastwood, a former TV journalist who married the gravelly-voiced actor in 1996, has a cameo in the new flick – as, appropriately enough, a journalist. “This is good for her because she doesn’t have to act,” says Clint. “She’s a pretty good actress. She doesn’t have any ambition to act, but I asked her if she’d play a reporter and she said, ‘Okay, I’ll do that.’ She’s happy to be doing it and making sure I stay out of trouble.”

The father-of-seven, who also directed Blood Work, stars as a former FBI profiler and heart attack survivor who comes out of retirement to hunt down a serial killer. “It kind of suits me at this more mature stage of my life,” says the 72-year-old Hollywood veteran.

In addition to Clint’s kids – Morgan, his five-year-old daughter with Dina, and Francesca, nine, whose mother is Titanic actress Frances Fisher – his co-stars Jeff Daniels and Anjelica Huston were also on hand for the movie’s West Coast premiere. Another star of the film, Wanda DeJesus, brought along her handsome partner, former NYPD Blue star Jimmy Smits.

Blood Work opens in the US on Friday, and debuts in the UK this November.
