Matt Damon's Clint Dream

Matt Damon wants to be like Clint Eastwood.

The actor, who worked with the Oscar-winning director on Nelson Mandela biopic 'Invictus', admits he finds the 79-year-old star "awesome" and would love to replicate his career successes.

He said: "He started directing around my age and to see a guy who's that invigorated by what he does, who's been doing it for that long, is awesome.

"That really is something that I hope that I can have in my life. It's such a full life, to be totally engaged and inspired and not be jaded and cynical but still love telling stories."

Matt, whose movie 'The Informant' is released on DVD on March 29, also claims he plans to go into directing when he gets the time to do so.

He told film website Coming Soon: "I'm dying to do it and I'm really excited about it but I keep getting these jobs with these directors and I go off to do them. I don't feel like I'm putting off my directing career by going to work with the Coen Brothers.

"On the contrary, I feel like I'm going to learn so much watching them that I guess I'll put off directing for another year and watch these guys do it."
