Clint Eastwood's daughter has said she hopes the revered actor will not retire because he will "probably drop dead" if he ever stops working.
Alison Eastwood appears alongside her 88-year-old father in The Mule, where he stars as an elderly drugs courier for a Mexican cartel.
Four-time Academy Award winner Clint, who also directs and produces the film, has been praised for his performance.
Alison plays Clint's daughter in the movie and says working keeps him "lively and young".
She told the Press Association: "I'm thrilled he's still working, I'm glad he keeps learning and expanding and keeps wanting to tell stories and do this. I think if he retired he would probably drop dead.
"It's just so much ingrained in him and he's so passionate about it that I want him to work forever because I think it'll keep him lively and young."
