Clint Fell Out With Ex Over Alison.s Film Debut

CLINT EASTWOOD fell out with his former wife MAGGIE JOHNSON when she heard he was casting their young daughter in a movie alongside hookers.

ALISON EASTWOOD was just 12 when she made her first credited film appearance in her father's crime drama TIGHTROPE - and her mother was horrified.

The actress recalls, "I didn't get to read the whole script - just my part. It wasn't until after the shoot was over that my mom read the whole script and she hit the wall.

"She called my dad up and said, 'How can you put her in a movie like this? There's scenes where hookers are oiled up and handcuffed and you're sleeping with hookers and people are getting murdered.'

"My mom almost didn't let me see it when it came out."
