Clint Eastwood finds it ''relaxing'' when he's not directing a film.
The legendary actor-and-director stars in new movie 'Trouble with the Curve' and he admits it was a great experience because he didn't have as much to worry about and could just be told what he had to do.
He said: ''I had to make no adjustments, at all. I've always maintained that there's more than one way of doing things. A lot of people come up with ideas and, maybe out of a dozen of them, three or four of them are really great. So, I just put it in my mind that somebody else has got to pilot the ship. That's all. And it's actually quite relaxing because I can just sit back. When everyone else was working, I was practicing putting. It was a great, relaxing thing, and I probably won't do both again, at least for the moment. But, I said I wasn't going to act again, a few years ago, and that changed, too. Sometimes you just lie a lot.''
In the film, Clint is directed by his producing partner Robert Lorenz and he says he was very impressed with the job he did.
He told Collider.com: ''I had to listen to everything he said. Actually, he did a terrific job, I thought. Rob was making noises about wanting to direct, for some years now. When this property came along, it was one that I wanted to do. After 'Gran Torino', I thought, 'This is stupid, to be doing both jobs.' I've only been doing it for 40-some years. Maybe I should just do one or the other and allow myself a little bit of a comfort zone. So, this was an opportunity for that, and he stepped right in and took over.''
