"I never went to a film school because they didn't have them when I started out. But after doing more than 50 films as an actor and 30 as a director, I would have thought I could have graduated before this," he said.

Clint Eastwood, the coolest mayor Carmel ever had, earned more hardware this week.
On Wednesday, he received the American Film Institute's first-ever Life Achievement Award during AFI's commencement ceremonies in Los Angeles. According to reports, he was honored for "contribution of distinction to the art of the movie image."

In true Eastwood fashion, he quieted the adoring crowd by telling the audience to "Knock it off, will ya," then reflected on his early years in film.

"I never went to a film school because they didn't have them when I started out," he said. "But after doing more than 50 films as an actor and 30 as a director I would have thought I could have graduated before this."

Eastwood celebrated his 79th birthday two weeks ago.

While he was in Southern California picking up his award, he could have run over to the new Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Hollywood, which features a spot-on representation of vintage Eastwood, back in his "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" days, complete with serape.

And Eastwood's latest film, "Gran Torino," is out in DVD.

Always busy, he is working on a DreamWorks picture called "Hereafter," which is billed as a "supernatural thriller."
