The Dirty Harry star says he has no plans to appear in films again after starring in Gran Torino, a drama about a racist veteran of the Korean War.
"That will probably do it for me as far as acting is concerned," said the 78-year-old, who stressed he had no plans to stop directing films.
"You always want to quit while you are ahead," he said. "You don't want to be like a fighter who stays too long in the ring until you're not performing at your best."
His performance in Gran Torino, which is released in Britain in February and which he also directed, has already been tipped as worthy of an Oscar. The drama revolves around the relationship between a disgruntled war veteran and his young neighbour, an Asian American teenager who tries to steal his prized possession, a 1972 Gran Torino.
