Wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson has sent a letter of admiration to his "one and only man crush" Clint Eastwood after missing out on the chance to meet his Hollywood hero at the Oscars last month (Feb13).

The Fast Five star, aka The Rock, reveals he spotted Eastwood and his wife Dina heading into the Dolby Theater for the Los Angeles prizegiving and wanted to take the opportunity to make a quick introduction - but he became starstruck by the screen legend and found himself frozen to the spot.

He says, "Clint has always been an inspiration of mine. As a matter of fact, Clint has always been my inspiration as an actor... With Clint, not only has he been my inspiration, (but he's) my one and only man crush...

"We were at the Oscars and I was doing red carpet and when I was done with an interview, I turn around and there he is, he's walking in with his wife... I was like, 'Oh man, this is it!' And then I froze. I completely froze. I couldn't pull the trigger... I looked at his wife; she smiled, I smiled at her... I didn't meet him."

Johnson has since decided to write Eastwood a note to let him know how much of a fan he is of the Dirty Harry icon's work.

He explains, "I wrote him a letter recently... He's been such an inspiration to me (and) I just wanted to take the time to write him a letter... I know that he received it, and in the letter it wasn't, 'Hey, here's my number, please call me', it was, 'I want you to know that you're my inspiration', that was it."
