Scott Eastwood to 'Man of the World': There's More to Me Than Acting (Exclusive!)

Scott Eastwood to 'Man of the World': There's More to Me Than Acting (Exclusive!)

Scott Eastwood is his usual sexy self on the cover of Man of the World‘s Hollywood Issue, on newsstands March 4.

Here’s what the 27-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On his father Clint Eastwood: “Some of my earliest memories are being on set with my dad. That was just work – busy people all over the place with no noticeable degree of difference between them. There wasn’t some unusual quality called fame. Even when I eventually got camera time, I didn’t get special treatment. If anything, my dad was harder on me. My father never pressured any of [his children] to go into the movie business. All he ever said was, ‘Whatever you do, do your best at it.’ If I didn’t do this, I’d be a fireman; something super-active that challenges you and is different every day.”

On his early career: “Everybody wanted to rep Scott Eastwood, not Scott Reeves. I could’ve done a western years ago. I read a ton of scripts. The reality is that the new westerns are sh*t. I wanted to play against all that. I like the medium of film. The constant learning process. There’s not one point where you can go, ‘Now I can do it.’ Being an actor and being a celebrity are different things.”

On who he is: “There’s more to me than acting. I don’t let acting control me. I wouldn’t know how to live an enjoyable life if I let it. All those experiences that expand the goal posts make you a better actor. But I’m not going to take it so seriously that I’m unkind to other people. We’re all just human beings working together to make something, and the part I do is called acting. F*ck, it’s just make believe.”

    Does he yell at empty chairs the way his father does?

  • Sayer


    Like Ireland Baldwin, he has accomplished NOTHING, but keeps getting media attention.

  • AsianFanatics

    Just enough pretty face making it because of his last name. His career will be short and meaningless.

  • pup

    He’s very good looking.

  • Dahlia1947

    I didn’t really pay attention to what he said in this interview, cause he is just so hhhhhhot!

  • essie

    He’s an actor? News to me..

  • tick

    More Hollywood nepotism.

  • ugh, stop it.

    ok im sick of seeing pics of this nobody

  • nathalie

    LOL at the quote “There’s more to me than acting.”! Maybe he sould prove first that he can act… So far he has not. Posing shirtless doesn’t count. He should get off his high horse.

  • ForMe

    @essie: He’s barely an actor. His last name won’t help him either. He’ll either fade away or he’ll be in Sharknado 8.

  • Brittany

    Jesus Christ! He’s gorgeous. Clint Eastwood’s son? Who knew.

  • anon

    The son is handsome, but NOBODY holds a candle next to Clint Eastwood when he was young and in his prime. He had it all physically — tall, slim, masculinity, chiseled face, but more than anything else, he didn’t come off as an aggressive he-man. He was subtle, soft-spoken and smooth. One of my all-time favorites in Hollywood.

  • Vida

    Love that I’m not the only one who sick of seeing this nobody.
    He went by Scott Reeves for years but couldn’t get an jobs ( could have done westerns, my behind) so now he’s trying to use the Eastwood name to get roles but all he gets is modeling jobs.

  • Royce

    ALL you idiot haters who are all nobodies your self should look in the mirror of your own self worth. You morons think because he has not been in a ” big” movie that he hasn’t acted before or that he doesn’t have talent, IGNORANT PEOPLE YOU ALL ARE. And then saying he is riding his dads name , please, take ur heads out of ur butts. He didn’t want to use the family name, That in and of it’s self is quality. He then choose after years of fighting it, to use his last name for himself not because he is daddy’s boy. And yes he might be eye candy to some, but so was Clint, and so is Brad Pitt. You idiots who judge people before they are given a chance to prove them self are simply useless rags of rhetoric.
