Stars in with Clint

Jolie, Pitt, and more attend 'Changeling' gala

After Clint Eastwood’s “Changeling” gala debut Tuesday, it was wall-towall critics at the official black-tie dinner at La Palme d’Or, complete with name cards at tables bearing the titles of Eastwood movies (“Dirty Harry,” “Unforgiven,” etc.). Universal brass Ron Meyer, David Linde, James Schamus and Donna Langley joined in.

Eastwood sat with wife Dina Ruiz, fest topper Thierry Fremaux, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

Eastwood’s long-time editor Joel Cox said Eastwood stars as a curmudgeon Korean War veteran next in “Gran Torino.” “One last time,” added Eastwood. Producer Brian Grazer admitted that there were several points of view on the film’s title. When “Changeling” was translated into French as “L’Echange,” (The Exchange), many liked that title better. Eastwood was noncommittal at the press conference. But Grazer thinks it will stay “Changeling” in the U.S.
