Scott Eastwood Gives First TV Interview: Talks Fame, Advice from Father Clint Eastwood (Video)

September 2, 2014

Scott Eastwood, son of the legendary director and actor Clint Eastwood, gave his first ever television interview on the Today Show. He spoke about his rise to fame and how he’s coping with it and what advice he’s received from his father.

The 28-year-old rising star has become a heartthrob for many, and his popularity which has been driven in part by his good looks and resemblance to his father in his younger years. His numerous pictures — especially the shirtless ones — have been a hit on social media. And of course he does have a bankable Hollywood name although several of his earlier screen credits are under his original name, “Scott Reeves.” As such he had a small role in his father’s movie “Grand Torino” which has given us yet another iconic Clint Eastwood line “Get off my lawn.”

While he has been in several movies — and notably will appear in the upcoming “The Longest Ride” based on Nicholas Sparks’ best-selling novel of the same title — Scott Eastwood had not given a television interview until now. Jenna Bush Hager of the Today Show had the honor of asking the actor and model the burning questions on the minds of many.

Among the tidbits he shared, the reaction his father had as to his career choice. Eastwood said his father “didn’t care what I did. He didn’t care if I was a plumber or if I was an actor. He said, ‘Whatever you do just do it well.” He went on to share more wisdom he’d received from his father, as regards to character — “be humble” and “be a good guy and tell the truth.”

The video of Scott Eastwood’s first television interview is below. We can be sure it’s just one of many interviews to follow especially in the months leading up to the highly anticipated “The Longest Ride.”
