Clint Eastwood’s son is coming clean about growing up in the Hollywood royalty bloodline and what he has to say about his dad’s parenting techniques is making women everywhere swoon and men smile in admiration.
Clint is unquestionably Hollywood royalty but that doesn’t mean he raised his son with a silver spoon in his mouth. The 29-year-old said his father had traditional, conservative parenting techniques and that “I’ve always had a job since I can remember.”
“My first car was a ’91 Ford Crown Victoria that was $1,000. And I had to buy every car after that. I had to do it all,” the new heartthrob of The Longest Ride said in an interview.
Unlike most of his peers born into Hollywood families notorious for name-dropping and DUIs, Scott didn’t even use the famous family name until recently. He stayed clear of the limelight for most of his life under the name ‘Scott Reeves.’
“I like being under the radar. I didn’t get into this business to become famous,” he said. “I got into this business because I like acting and I want to make movies. I would be happy living the rest of my life never famous.”
Scott graduated with a degree in communications, with honors, from Loyola Marymount in 2008, and Clint hasn’t given Scott an easy route to pursue his acting ambitions either.
“My dad always says, ‘Work hard, keep your nose clean…and just stick around.’ Everybody thinks it’s an overnight success. But the reality is, it takes years of hard work,” said Scott.
Humble, hard-working, and yeah, his looks don’t exactly hurt.
Judging by Scott’s values and personality, I’d say Clint did a damn fine job raising his son.
