Are you tired of drooling over the same A-listers day in and day out? If you think there’s always room for another celebrity crush, let me introduce you to Scott Eastwood. Yes Eastwood, as in Clint’s handsome son.
Scott, 27, landed the cover of Town & Country Magazine’s October issue. In his interview, young Eastwood revealed what kind of man he hopes to become. “I want to be a man’s man – not a kid actor or a glitzy pop star but a no bulls**t leading man.”
The Monterey, California native has sure taken on some pretty manly roles in films such as Dawn Patrol, a murder drama, and Fury, a movie based around World War II that he stars in next to Brad Pitt and, my celebrity crush, Shia LaBeouf. Fury began production this month. He also just landed a role in a film called Perfect Wave, as a surfer who is out to seek the gnarliest wave.
Nepotism in Hollywood is alive and well. Anyone wonder how an A-lister’s son cops all these A-list roles while talented aspiring actors never get their opportunity to catch a break? They don’t have the contacts and don’t get a chance to prove themselves when roles are already reserved for celebrities’ kids.
While growing up, Clint made his son earn his own money.
“I was on my own just doing the grind,” he said while listing some of his unglamorous past jobs including bartending, valeting, and construction work.
But there’s one thing he will always hold near and dear that his Oscar-winning father taught him. “As a director and an actor, my dad’s motto is ‘Tell the truth.’ The only way of doing that is having life experiences and being a storyteller.”
With his ravishing good looks, and one of the most famous last names in Hollywood, I predict that great things are in store for Scott Eastwood.
