No, that’s not a young Clint Eastwood in the October issue of “Town & Country,” it’s his hunky 27-year-old son, Scott. His scruffy, chiseled offspring looks like him during his “Dirty Harry” days as he smokes on a cigar for the magazine's 1960s-nautical-inspired photo shoot.
It turns out that Scott wants to be just like his dad. "I want to be a man's man -- not a kid actor or a glitzy pop star but a no-bulls--t leading man," E! News quoted the model about the type of star he would like to become.
Just because it seems like his “Gran Torino” director and actor father would be able to hook him up with some Hollywood gigs, doesn’t mean Scott hasn’t had to work hard to achieve his goals. "People assumed that I would have everything handed to me, but that couldn't be further from the truth," he reportedly said in the magazine.
He said he did a variety of odd jobs growing up, having worked as a construction worker, a bartender and a valet; which is what he referred to as “just doing the grind.”
It seems now, however, will be Scott’s time to shine. The 27-year-old is slated to appear in upcoming films like “The Perfect Wave,” “Dawn Patrol” and “Fury,” a World War II flick that will also star Brad Pitt and Shia LeBeuof.
But it also doesn’t help having an A-list actor as a father. Eastwood supposedly help his son gets roles in “Flags of Our Fathers,” “Gran Torino,” and “Trouble With the Curve.” His famous pop has also given him a solid piece of advice: "As a director and an actor, my dad's motto is 'Tell the truth.' The only way of doing that is having life experiences and being a storyteller," he explained.
According to Us Weekly, aside from acting, fishing and surfing, Scott likes to hang out at Solana Beach’s Saddle Bear, where he is a co-owner. "I'm not a club kind of guy," he told the magazine. "Dive bars are much more my thing. They're no-nonsense."
Scott is Eastwood’s son with Jacelyn Reeves. Eastwood has seven children with five different women. He is currently going through a legal separation with his most recent wife, Dina.
