Scott Eastwood reveals the last time he cried.
"I dated a girl a couple of years ago who died in a car accident," he shares with GQ Australia. "The f**ked 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."
The 30-year-old actor says the tragedy changed him. "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," he confides. "I think that really affected me in a way that... I don’t know. Maybe it’s made it harder for me to date."
Eastwood also admits, "I still never called her father. I still haven’t found the right words."
"It’s easy to fall in love when you’re young, right?" he adds. "And then you start to realize those feelings of love and stuff -- passion, love, lust -- sometimes they come very quickly, but they can also leave quickly."
While Eastwood has become a Hollywood heartthrob, he still says it was easier for him to meet women when he was bartending. "That was probably the wildest time," he quips. "It still beats out being in movies or whatever. It still beats out all that, a thousand times."
As for his famous father, Clint Eastwood, The Longest Ride star says he wasn't given any handouts. "As a younger kid there was kind of an aura of greatness. Like, he’s my hero," he recalls. "Now, I think every opportunity is an opportunity to hear another good story."
He also remembers when he asked his dad for money while he was in college. "I called [dad] and was like, ‘I’ve got this job, can I get eight grand to buy a truck? I’m working this job, I can pay you back ‘x’ amount a month, you know,’" he shares. "And I remember the phone going silent, and he’d just be like, ‘Yeah, no.' ...He wouldn’t give me a dime."
According to GQ, Eastwood also claims that his father once wrapped his hands around his throat and punched him in the face after he left his younger sister, who was 14 at the time, at a party. "Later, dad found out that I’d left her there," he remembers. "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 bullsh** where you can’t even smack the kid because everyone’s afraid of being judged or whatever. That wasn’t the way that sh** went down in that family."
The actor adds, "If you did something wrong, you were going to get punished. I learned quickly -- you don’t do that."
