Dwayne Johnson sends fan letter to Clint Eastwood
London: Wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson has sent a letter of admiration to Clint Eastwood after missing out on the chance to meet his Hollywood hero at the Oscars last month.
The `Fast Five` star, aka The Rock, said he spotted Eastwood and his wife Dina heading into the Dolby Theater for the Los Angeles prize giving and wanted to take the opportunity to make a quick introduction. But he became starstruck by the screen legend and found himself frozen to the spot, reported Contactmusic.
"Clint has always been an inspiration of mine. As a matter of fact, Clint has always been my inspiration as an actor... With Clint, not only has he been my inspiration, (but he`s) my one and only man crush," Johnson said.
"We were at the Oscars and I was doing red carpet and when I was done with an interview, I turn around and there he is, he`s walking in with his wife... I was like, `Oh man, this is it!` And then I froze. I completely froze. I couldn`t pull the trigger... I looked at his wife; she smiled, I smiled at her... I didn`t meet him," he added.
Johnson has since decided to write Eastwood a note to let him know how much of a fan he is of the `Dirty Harry` star`s work.
"I wrote him a letter recently... He`s been such an inspiration to me (and) I just wanted to take the time to write him a letter... I know that he received it, and in the letter it wasn`t, `Hey, here`s my number, please call me`, it was, `I want you to know that you`re my inspiration`, that was it," he said.
