Is it getting hot in here, or is Scott Eastwood talking about his sex scenes with his Longest Ride co-star Britt Robertson?

"Being in a shower with a beautiful, sexy woman -- I was turned on! I had fun!" says Eastwood in a new interview with ET contributor Chris Azzopardi for LGBT site PrideSource.

Eastwood has had experience filming sex scenes, having shot "four or five" already throughout his up-and-coming acting career. The actor, whose father is Clint Eastwood, says it's key to 'keep your thoughts sort of... controlled.'

In the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' best-selling novel, The Longest Ride, Eastwood plays a bull rider who puts the moves on a college student (Robertson). Naturally, there's nakedness.

"I didn't really care [about the nudity]," the 29-year-old actor says. "The butt thing -- to me, this was a really classy story and a really classy movie, so I didn't care about showing a little butt in there. That's part of it. Sex scenes -- you see a little bit of action, right? And that's what makes a good sex scene. Not too much. You don't wanna give it all away. You gotta leave something to the imagination."

Among the other revelations during the interview: He'd be down for barn sex ("Why not?!"). He sides with his dad on the issue of gay marriage ("Everyone leave everyone alone"). And, despite his legendary lineage, acting hasn't been an easy road for the actor.

"I've been doing it for 12 years, and I always say Hollywood is like high school," Eastwood says. "If you're not the cool kid, you're the outcast. And nobody really cares and people don't take you seriously. I was never the cool kid. Definitely not the cool kid. ... There's been a couple of moments I thought about throwing in the towel, for sure."

Who kept him from doing so? "I once heard from Mel Gibson," Eastwood recalls. "His advice was, 'Just stick around and keep plugging away at it. Keep your head down and keep working hard.'"
