Clint Eastwood, who's the subject this week of both a new documentary and a massive 35 DVD retrospective set, recently called actor Morgan Freeman his "lucky charm," explaining, "We had two Best Pictures ('Unforgiven' and 'Million Dollar Baby') with him in it."

Was Eastwood disappointed that 'Invictus' was passed over in both the Best Picture and Director categories this year?

"No," he told Moviefone. "Look, I've been around a long time and probably they should give somebody else a look. I don't think too much about that stuff. I didn't think about it then, I just got lucky with those two."

Longtime friend and collaborator Freeman, who received a Best Actor nomination for his role as Nelson Mandela in 'Invictus,' was similarly sanguine about this year's Oscars, rating his chances as "slim and none."

Eastwood and Freeman were at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art Wednesday night to launch the Warner Bros. retrospective DVD set as well as the new Richard Schickel documentary, 'The Eastwood Factor,' which Freeman narrates.

With such a massive film resume, Eastwood admitted having to refresh his memory on some of the older films. "I haven't visited them in so long. The last seven years or so, I've been more familiar with that group, say from 'Mystic River' to 'Million Dollar Baby' and 'Letters From Iwo Jima.' When you get back into the '90s, I have to revisit them and look into them and try to put myself of the mood of where I was at the time."

Would he shell out $175 himself for the package? "Oh, it's worth every penny," he joked.

Freeman called his working relationship with Eastwood "like a good marriage. I leave him alone, he leaves me alone, pretty much." Their long friendship began on the set of 'Unforgiven,' Freeman recalled. "I went to the set of Big Whiskey (the name of the town in the film) I didn't talk to him, except to say, 'Hi. How you doing?' The first assistant said nobody goes to the set unless you're in a wagon or riding a horse.'"

His favorite Clint movie line? Same as everyone else's: "Go ahead, make my day." "It was everybody's favorite line," Freeman said. "There were so many different ways you can use it, in so many situations that come up."

Freeman hasn't commented publicly about his hand, which was injured in a car accident, but when asked about it at the event, he explained why he still wears a neoprene glove. "I can't move my hand or it will swell up," he said, adding, "You know you move your hand about a million times a day?" Of course, it hasn't slowed him down from acting or detracted from his busy awards schedule, but Freeman admitted, "No, it's not getting any better."
