Scott Eastwood or Scott Reeves or Both?

Scott Eastwood is actor/director’s Clint Eastwood’s youngest son. Scott was born on March 21, 1986 in Carmel, California. However, Scott was not born with the last name of Eastwood. In fact, when Scott first tried breaking into the Hollywood scene he used his mother’s last name of Reeves until he finally realized the power of the Eastwood name and soon learned to embrace the Eastwood name. However, it took five years of auditioning and making a name for himself before Scott would begin using the name Eastwood. Scott made the following movies under his birth name Scott Reeves: “You Got Served”, “Flags of Our Fathers”, “An American Crime”, “Pride”, “Player 5150”, and “Gran Torino.” Now of course two of the six movies were directed by Scott’s dad, but still you have got to give the guy some credit for attempting to make it in Hollywood for five years prior to succumbing to the benefits of the Eastwood name. Scott’s given name is Scott Clinton Reeves and on his birth certificate his mother Jacelyn Ann Reeves placed “Father Declined” on the line next to father. Scott has quite a few siblings, many of them half siblings, because his father (Clint) obviously got around. He has one younger sister, Kathryn Eastwood, and five other half siblings all from his father’s side. (Kimber Tunis, Kyle Eastwood, Alison Eastwood, Francesca Fisher-Eastwood, and Morgan Eastwood.)

Scott Eastwood Up and Coming

Now that we ventured through Scott’s father’s messy love life and have mapped out Scott’s family tree we can move onto the man Scott Eastwood has become and how he got there. If you haven’t heard of Scott Eastwood during the last six months you have probably been living under a rock. He starred in the 2015 movie “The Longest Ride” as the lead male character Luke Collins. “The Longest Ride” was the latest adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’s many love novels and Scott beat out five other top actors for the coveted role. The movie cost $34 million to make and made a little over $63 million nationally. Despite negative reviews, the movie finished in the green and earned Scott Eastwood a 2015 Teen Choice Award for Choice Movie Actor. Soon after Scott starred as the protagonist in the long awaited “Wildest Dreams” music video from pop superstar Taylor Swift.

Scott may have been born in California but he was raised in Hawaii. Scott graduated from High School in 2003 and attended Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Scott graduated in 2008 with a degree in communications. Scott currently lives in San Diego.

When Scott speaks of his childhood he speaks of traveling from movie set to movie set with his dad and this is when his love of storytelling and the production of films became an interest of his. Scott often states that his dad is a man of few words and that his father has taught him to respect people and to work hard. Scott doesn’t seem to get any preferential treatment from his father when it comes to movies. Scott Eastwood has auditioned for almost every one of his father’s movies, however, many times his father has passed him by without a call or letter explaining why. Scott explains this as just part of the business and nothing personal when his father does not choose him for a part or when his father neglects to let him know that he hasn’t received a part. So just as like every other actor who sends in an audition tape to Clint Eastwood, if Clint doesn’t like you, don’t expect a phone call, not even if Clint is your dad. Ouch…


Scott Eastwood speaks very highly of his mother and has referred to her as his biggest cheerleader and best friend. He has also been quoted from interviews as saying that his mother taught him to be selfless, and honest, and to touch people’s lives in a positive way. Scott seems to have a good head on his shoulder and knows that even though he’s an Eastwood he still has to work hard and prove himself as an actor. Sure the Eastwood name will get you so far but if you aren’t willing to put in the hard work it won’t matter what your last name is and Scott Eastwood is very aware of this at his young age.


There was a point in time when Eastwood was very close to becoming Christian Grey in the flim adaptation of the book series “Fifty Shades of Grey” however, Scott felt uncomfortable auditioning for a movie that he was not able to see the script prior to auditioning for so Scott never auditioned for the part, even though the studio pursued him heavily after Charlie Hunnam exited the role as Christian Grey. The role would then be given to Jamie Dornan. Eastwood wants to be taken as a serious actor and not some teeny bopper teen idol or glitzy celebrity. He has been quoted as wanting to be seen as a man’s man… while I personally think he is highly succeeding. Scott Eastwood comes off as a very well rounded young man who seems to have his shit together. He knows that he may not be the best actor in the world but he damn well wants to be known as one of the hardest working actors in the world. He seems to want to prove himself in the acting world and he is off to a good start.
