New York - Hollywood veteran Clint Eastwood has accused President Barack Obama of lacking leadership skills.
Eastwood said in an interview with Germany's Stern magazine: "You can win elections, but does that mean you can govern a country?
"Up till now he hasn't shown much strength of leadership."
The 79-year old actor and director is a member of the Republican party, but was a harsh critic of the Obama's predecessor George W Bush.
Eastwood compared Obama's first year in office to that of Nelson Mandela's in 1994.
Eastwood's new film Invictus focuses on the former South African president.
"I hope he sees my film and understands the message," Eastwood said.
