‘Gran Torino’ premieres in L.A.

Clint Eastwood, Angelina Jolie mingle at event

HOLLYWOOD — Clint Eastwood’s second release of the year, “Gran Torino,” made its official bow Tuesday in the Steven J. Ross Theater on the Warner lot, with a post-party on nearby New York Street.

There, the helmer continued to prove he’s a machine, much like the 1972 machine of the film’s title.

Despite a bad cold that limited his ability to chat, he gamely stuck around for the party, getting some assistance from his “Changeling” star Angelina Jolie.

“It hasn’t been a year since he read the script,” marveled “Torino” producer Bill Gerber of the industrious Eastwood.

Fellow producer Robert Lorenz added that he hasn’t had a vacation yet and he’ll soon be off to South Africa for Eastwood’s next one, “Mandela.”
