Before the world knew Scott Eastwood as his own person, he lived under the shadow of his legendary father, Clint Eastwood. Just he has moved on from that and today, he has carved out a niche for himself in Hollywood with his 2018 film Pacific Rim: Uprising said to have dethroned Black Panther from the #1 spot for performance on an opening weekend.
Born on March 21, 1986, as Scott Clinton Reeves, the Texas Chainsaw actor and American model is the son of Clint Eastwood and Jacelyn Ann Reeves. Even though he was born in Monterey County, California, to his mother who was a flight attendant and his father, who is a Hollywood legend for his decades of work as an actor, film producer, and director, Eastwood was raised in Hawaii.
Still on his background, he has several half-siblings – from both parents. His father, Clint Eastwood, had seven children and he chose the fourth spot among them. He also has a younger sister from both his parents named Kathryn Reeves. His half-siblings from his dad are Kimber Tunis, Kyle, Alison, Francesca, and Morgan Eastwood.
After graduating from high school in 2003, Scott Eastwood went on to attend a community college in California – Santa Monica College – for two years, before studying Communications as a major when he moved over to Loyola Marymount University in 2005. He graduated in 2008 with a degree in the subject.
Scott Eastwood began his acting career in a film directed by his father in 2006 titled Flags of Our Fathers. To escape the shadow for his father, he attended auditions with the name “Steve Reeves” which is his birth (maternal) name. He never wanted to get a role he never deserved just because of his father name, even in his father productions.
He has gone on to feature in a couple of films which include Gran Torino (2008), Invictus (2009), Enter Nowhere (2010), The Forger (2012), Trouble with the Curve (2012), Texas Chainsaw (2013), Fury (2014), Suicide Squad (2016), Snowden (2016), Walk of Fame (2017), The Fate of the Furious (2017), to mention a few. His biggest work to date would be in the 2018 sci-fi film Pacific Rim Uprising where he portrayed Nate Lambert.
It was is 2015 that Scoot staked his claim for his voice to be heard in the industry. He finally stepped out his father’s shadows with The Longest Ride (2015). The film which also featured Britt Robertson was an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ novel of the same title. That was the movie that announced his name to Hollywood directors and producers that he meant business in the industry. The same year, Eastwood was featured in Taylor Swift‘s music video for the song titled “Wildest Dreams”.
