The pretty blonde couldn’t believe it when her mother Frances Fisher called and told her the news, and admits the honour took a while to sink in.
She says, “My mum called and said, ‘They want you to be Miss Golden Globe’ and I was like, ‘Are you serious?’ And then I screamed… It was amazing.
“They just choose you. They go through a list of girls… They told me that I beat out a lot of girls.”
As Miss Golden Globe, Eastwood will be tasked with handing trophies to prize winners and then ushering them backstage at the big event in January (13). Her predecessor is Andie MacDowell’s daughter Rainey Qualley, who held the title for this year’s (12) Globes.
Eastwood admits she’s nervous about “falling over” onstage – but whatever happens on the night, she knows she has made her dad proud.
She tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood Live, “He’s excited. He’s really supportive of me doing this.”
