Clint Eastwood directed Angelina Jolie in 2008's hit thriller "Changeling," and now the legendary actor/director is sharing some tips with the Academy Award-winning actress as she prepares to step behind the camera for the first time.

"My advice for her is to get more sleep than the actors," Clint told People at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of his latest film, "Hereafter." "And to have good management – know what you want and know what you are looking for and go after it."
