Mitt Romney got some celebrity love when Clint Eastwood showed up at his high-dollar fundraiser this evening in Idaho to offer his endorsement of the presumptive GOP nominee.

When the Oscar-winning director was asked why he was supporting Romney, Eastwood responded, “Because I think the country needs a boost somewhere.”

Eastwood, who has a home near the Sun Valley Resort where the fundraiser was held, was wearing grey sneakers, beige slacks, a green blazer and a pair of sunglasses, when reporters spotted him.

Eastwood endorsed — and campaigned for — Sen. John McCain during the 2008 election and was forced to clarify that he was not supporting Obama after he voiced a Super Bowl ad about the recovering auto industry earlier this year.
