Clint Eastwood has confessed his love for jazz music in a rare interview with musician Jamie Cullum.

The Dirty Harry legend and Hollywood veteran became unlikely pals after the jazz pianist composed the main score for Eastwood”s 2008 drama Gran Torino.

And the actor/director has chosen the diminutive star”s BBC Radio 2 show to talk about his love of all things jazz.

In the interview, Eastwood admits he”s a huge fan of Cullum”s work, saying, “You jumped off the piano… I thought, ”Hey, this guy”s going somewhere!”

“I did feel that you were bringing an entertainment value to jazz, or swing or blues or whatever you were playing… that had long been missing. I became a fan on that evening. It”s a rare opportunity for me to be on the Jamie Cullum show, it”s always fun to talk about music,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
