Scott Eastwood has finally reached out to the father of his ex-girlfriend, Jewel Brangman, who tragically died in a car accident in 2014.
In a candid interview with GQ Australia, 30-year-old Scott said he didn't speak to Jewel's father, Alexander Brangman, after her death, because he still hasn't "found the right words." But in a new interview, Alexander says Scott apologized to him with a phone call on Tuesday night.
"He said, 'I didn't reach out because I didn't know what to say,'" Alexander tells People. "He was very apologetic."
The 61-year-old law professor admits he was disappointed when Scott didn't come to Jewel's funeral two years ago.
"Quite frankly, I was hurt by it," Alexander says, recalling the emotional time. "I was disappointed he didn't come to her celebration of life. Many people were actually disappointed. Many of her friends flew across the country to pay their respects and condolences. There wasn't even a flower sent."
He also had an issue with Scott talking about Jewel publicly, without his consent.
"I don't think he handled the situation properly," Alexander says bluntly.
Still, the grieving father showed some understanding when it comes to the Suicide Squad actor's actions.
"Maybe he didn't know how to grieve, and in some ways, I could have helped him," Alexander muses. "Or could still help him. I was angry -- but everybody grieves differently. You know, he's a kid, too. I didn't know what his grieving process is -- I'd like to get to know more of what he went through. Because that's a difficult thing."
"If he wants to confide in me the struggles he's been going through in regards to their relationship and her passing, I'll be more than glad to counsel him," he adds, explaining that Scott wanted to meet with him to discuss things in person.
Scott told GQ that Jewel's death has had a profound impact on 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 said. "I think that really affected me in a way that... I don't know. Maybe it’s made it harder for me to date."
On Sept. 7, 2014, while driving from San Diego to Los Angeles, California, Jewel was killed after she rear-ended a van while driving a 2001 Honda Civic, according to the accident report obtained by ET. She was just 26 years old.
"The f**ked up thing is, it was a fender bender, and there was a recall on airbags," Scott told the magazine. "Her airbag exploded. It shot a projectile through her body. It split her spine, and um... I've never told anybody that."
