Francesca Eastwood warned about Hollywood

Clint Eastwood's teenage daughter has been warned about the downsides of Hollywood by her mother Frances Fisher.

'The Host' actress - who shares 19-year-old Francesca Eastwood with the 82-year-old A-list director, who she dated for five years until 1995 - is thrilled their daughter wants to carve out a career in acting but is determined she is prepared to be less successful than her famous father despite believing in her talent.

The 60-year-old actress, who played Kate Winslet's mother in 'Titanic', told AARP.org: "I'm very happy for her. She's just completed her first feature film with her boyfriend, [director] Tyler Shields and Abigail Breslin. It's called 'Final Girl', and it has the most interesting trailer I've ever seen.

"I've always tried to show her the pitfalls of the acting field. She's seen the fabulous side of it and she's seen the struggling side of it because she's seen what I've gone through. Not knowing where your next job is coming from is -- something. After 'Titanic' I didn't work for a year, interestingly enough."

Frances has also warned her daughter - who was named Miss Golden Globe 2013 - about ageism in the acting world and hopes to inspire her not to have cosmetic surgery.

She said: "I was talking to Jane Seymour today. You know, we haven't done anything to our faces, and the subtle pressure from people to do that is beginning to come to my attention. But I am a firm believer that if I am a true actress, to be able to play all kinds of roles in all different periods of time, I can't mess with my face. If you're supposed to be living in the 1850s, you can't look like someone who's had work done!"

Frances believes she was "pigeonholed" after her success in 'Titanic' but is excited about her role in 'The Host', in which she plays the aunt of a heroine played by Irish actress Saoirse Ronan.

She said: "The heroine fights so hard against the alien voice inside her. I was intrigued to be part of a movie that discusses how there are different parts of our minds that speak to us. The war between the ego and the spirit. Everyone has that going on.

"I think it's important for people to know 'The Host' is not just about a bunch of young people. There are a lot of hot, fabulous young actors in the movie. But there are also a few adults."
