From his surname and the pic above, you’d be right to think that Scott Eastwood is related to his incredibly famous father, Clint. However it’s only recently he’s been using his illustrious family name, as he started his acting career as Scott Reeves, taking his mother, flight attendant Jacelyn Reeves’, surname.
There’s a good reason for that, as Clint didn’t publicly acknowledge he’d fathered Scot and his sister Kathryn until 2002. Indeed it’s said that on their birth certificate it simply says ‘father declined’. Scott was born just as Clint was beginning his spell as mayor of Carmel, California in 1986, which is where he grew up.
Now that Clint’s let the world know he has two more children than they originally knew about, he’s been helping his son out, as he gave Scott his first small movie role in Flags Of Our Fathers, and also cast him in Gran Torino (which was his last role as Scott Reeves) and Invictus. More recently they’ve been acting alongside one another in Trouble With The Curve.
Scott’s acting career hasn’t solely been working with his dad though, as he’s also appeared in the likes of An American Crime, Chasing Mavericks and the upcoming The Perfect Wave (the last two films showing his love of surfing). On January 9th (with previews on Jan 4th & 5th) he’ll be in UK cinemas taking a major role in Texas Chainsaw 3D.
Whether Scott will ever reach the heights of fame of his father is yet to be seen, but he’s got the looks. Take a look through the cute pics of him below, clicking on them to enlarge.
