Scott Eastwood Remembers His Late Girlfriend: 'I Had Never Lost Someone I Had Been Intimate With'

Scott Eastwood takes the cover of GQ Australia‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 30-year-old Suicide Squad actor had to share:

On losing a girlfriend in a car accident: “I dated a girl a couple of years ago who died in a car accident…The f*cked up thing is, it was a fender bender, and there was a recall on airbags. Her airbag exploded. It shot a projectile through her body. It split her spine, and um… I’ve never told anybody that. I’ve lost friends before; I’ve lost some great friends. But, I had never lost someone I had been really intimate with, you know, like in that way, in a relationship. I think that really affected me in a way that… I don’t know. Maybe it’s made it harder for me to date…I still never called her father. I still haven’t found the right words.”

On when Clint Eastwood got physical with him: “I had taken my younger sister, who was, like, 14, to this party. I left, maybe to go get beer with the guys. And I left her and I didn’t think about it at the time. Later, Dad found out that I’d left her there. He popped me and said, ‘You don’t ever leave your sister at a party. EVER.’ And it was very old-school, very old-school of him. He wasn’t afraid. None of this new-age bullshit where you can’t even smack the kid because everyone’s afraid of being judged or whatever. That wasn’t the way that shit went down in that family… If you did something wrong, you were going to get punished. I learnt quickly – you don’t do that.”

    Good for Clint for punishing his son that way. Parents want too easily to be their children’s friends instead of putting their kids in their place and telling them what’s what. I wish parents would smack their kids every time I take the NYC subway and they are acting out and being complete brats. But of course, since everyone has a camera, no one can discipline a kid in public, which kids are highly aware of. Kids are smart, but once they get home, the parents should discipline their kids.

    As it said, “the only time Clint got physical”
    He only did it under a certain circumstance where he needed to get the point across and Scott being a young knucklehead needed it rung in his head.

  • Liz

    Sometimes it only takes one time for a parent to be tough with his/her kid for the kid to get it, sometimes it takes more than once.

  • Boddicea

    And all that’s really needed is a Gibbs smack upside the back of the head.

  • jsizzler

    Once, twice, that wasn’t the point. The circumstance where the point NEEDS to be put across. I agree with your statement, though.

  • Ryan Chapman

    You love a girl, she dies and you never say a word to her father? The right words would be something along the lines of “Your daughter was someone I loved dearly, I am so sorry for your loss” You don’t just be a guy who turns his back to a women you loved grieving family.

  • MJ77

    This was a guy who was punched by his dad and thinks that’s normal, and that to not punch your kid is “new-age bullshit”. I think that tells you everything about why he could turn his back on the grieving family of a woman he was in a relationship with. Expressing his grief would probably be “pussy” or something.

  • jh7058622

    Wtf he never said he got punched probably hit but punched and smacked are two completely different things.

  • MJ77

    He said he got “popped” in the face, which is common slang for punched (and being shot, but I’m pretty sure as much of a gun nut his dad is, he didn’t shoot him).

    Edit: Also he’s been quoted in other places as saying his dad punched him in the face so, I’m pretty confident he meant punched when he said popped.

    No what place do you live where that is slang for punched… again slapped more than likely is what he was referring to.

  • MJ77

    America. And he meant punched.

  • Hannah Grace

    I agree, every place I’ve ever heard “popped” they meant punched. I use that term that way too. I mean just google it, it means to be punched. Also you’re right about him not talking to her Dad, I mean Clint Eastwood himself is one of those “Macho manly man” assholes, who thinks any feminine thing is a “bad” thing, and so if you were his son and talked about feelings he’d probably think you’re a “girl” or w/e idk probably something ridiculous like that. Also, everyone has different ways of grieving, I mean one of my ex boyfriends was murdered when we were both 15, it was really hard on me, I didn’t know how to talk to his mom, and his mom was barely there at the funeral, she was highly medicated because it was really hard for her losing her only child who she almost died giving birth to in fact. So anyways, I never have spoken to her since then, because I don’t know what to say, I don’t want to say something that doesn’t sound sincere. So I can see how he wouldn’t call her Dad. I just hope he can move on in the future and find happiness somehow.

    ‘brush strokes’ perhaps, an instrumental part of the bigger picture.

  • jh7058622

    You don’t know that unless you were the eye witness to this… Only he can clarify and he could have just meant hit a la pimp slapped.

  • Juanita Juniper

    of course popped meant punched, number one. Number two, I find it strange also he hasn’t spoken to the girl’s father thought I underSTAND how uncomfortable it is. But you have to think of the other person first, and how much it would mean to them.

  • MJ77

    It’s been stated in GQ magazine, if that was untrue he’d be suing them for libel. I’m not going to respond to you again, you can believe whatever you like.

  • Jeremy Stewart

    “Popped” doesn’t mean “punched” in every area. I live in NC, and every time I’ve ever heard it, it’s either meant “slapped” or “spanked”

  • tom

    I admire Scott,he really tries

  • jh7058622

    Bye.

  • RubyBlue7

    You should read the actual GQ interview, it’s a little disturbing. He also talked about his dad pimping him out to older women when he was 16, so it’s pretty safe to assume that things are a bit fucked up in the Eastwood household.

  • David Daisy May Boldock

    Clint did right to snot him. Too much PC crap makes us all namby-pamby’s.
