VIZ - - Game Of Thrones 4 Page Special -

PALS of CLINT EAST­WOOD say the Tin­sel­town star has re­cently been “in a right tizz” af­ter he found a baby bird at the bot­tom of a tree in the gar­den. The star of movies such as A Fist­ful of Dol­lars, Dirty Harry and Ev­ery Which Way But Loose was out play­ing when he spot­ted the chick at the base of a tree. “He looked up the tree but he couldn’t see the nest it must have fell out of,” said East­wood’s close friend and Bronco Billy co-star SONDRA LOCKE. “It didn’t have no feath­ers on, and he was all wor­ried the cat would get it if he just left it.”

os­car The 2-times Os­car win­ner ran in­side to alert his mum to the bird’s predica­ment. “I asked her if I should climb up the tree and put it back on a twig but she said just leave it be­cause its mam would be watch­ing and if she smelt me on it she would kick it out the nest any­way,” he told satel­lite en­ter­tain­ment news chan­nel TMZ. Mrs East­wood also cau­tioned her son, 88, against climb­ing the tree in case he ripped his best trousers.

The Out­law Josey Wales star was still wor­ried about the bird, and de­cided to give it some­thing to eat. “I put it out a saucer of milk with bread in but it didn’t want it,” he told the chan­nel. “It was just sat there squawk­ing at me with its yel­low beak.”

big bird Not long af­ter­wards, East­wood’s best pal and Spaghetti Westerns co-star LEE VAN CLEEF turned up to help him build a den. “Lee knows loads about birds be­cause he found a swal­low that had flown into the front win­dow and he kept it in a box and fed it off the end of a pen­cil un­til its wing mended,” the Mag

num Force star said. “He let it go up near the woods and it flew off.”

“Lee said I shouldn’t of tried to give it milk and bread as it was too small and in­stead I should of give it chopped up worms like what its mam would do,” East­wood added.
