Scott Eastwood: 'I didn't get any handouts from my dad'

Clint Eastwood made his son Scott work hard to become an actor by refusing to give him a career boost.

As a result, the Fury actor had to take a series of odd jobs to pay the rent while he was struggling to land roles.


He tells Nylon magazine, "I parked cars, did construction, anything on the side to make extra money. My dad wasn't a guy who gave handouts, so I had to go work for it."


And as soon as he started making waves as a model and actor, he followed his father's lead and got away from Hollywood, but while Clint headed north to Carmel, Scott went south to San Diego, California.


He adds, "I did the L.A. thing for a while, moved down to San Diego about seven or eight years ago, and never looked back. There's no bulls**t here, no pretentiousness, no one trying to climb a social ladder. It's just people living their lives, and I'm very happy here. You only get one life; why not live a great one?"
