Sweet little country star Kellie Pickler made Clint Eastwood feel her up on the set of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
Pickler — singing Saturday at the Silverton — met Clint on “Ellen” in October. She got so overheated, she grabbed his “Dirty Harry” hand and put it on her chest so he could feel her racing heartbeat.
Pickler, 24, explains to us how this went down, in her deep North Carolina drawl:
“I figured, I’m just gonna take advantage of this while I can, and do what every woman wishes she could do right now. This opportunity might not ever come along again!”
Eastwood, 80, smiled but left the “Ellen” set.
“I think I scared him, and he hauled ass out of there!” Pickler says.
Pickler’s husband, songwriter Kyle Jacobs, knew she was an Eastwood mega fan, so Jacobs was “a very good sport about it,” she says.
Pickler — one of the biggest success stories to come out of “American Idol” — hasn’t stopped recording and touring since 2006, she says.
“Everything’s been such a whirlwind, and rush-rush-rush, and go-go-go, since ‘American Idol.’ I haven’t had time to stop and stand still and catch my breath.”
She’s working on her third album.
“I can’t wait to get new music out because we beat the same songs to death every night on the road, so it’s nice to get some new ones to beat around.”
She daydreams that one magical thing will come to her:
“I would love for Clint Eastwood to direct one of my videos and be in it — my love interest!”
