Clint Eastwood has endorsed Mitt Romney for President of the United States.

The actor and Oscar-winning director endorsed the Republican presidential candidate on Friday night during a Sun Valley fundraiser.

"I think the country needs a boost," Eastwood told the Associated Press.

In February, Eastwood had told Fox News that he wasn't supporting any politicians, but people saw his narration of "Halftime in America" A Super Bowl ad campaign for Chrysler as a nod towards Obama.

According to Eastwood, the advert was meant to be a message about just about job growth and the spirit of America. "I think all politicians will agree with it. I thought the spirit was OK," he said to Fox News. 

Eastwood believes that Romney would "restore a decent tax system so there's a fairness and people are not pitted against each other," BBC News reported.
What was Romney's response to all of this?

"He just made my day. What a guy," Romney said after the endorsement.
