If the smoldering charm and devastating charisma seem familiar, that's partly because this face belongs to 35-year-old Scott Eastwood, son of screen legend Clint Eastwood. 

The American actor was born Scott Clinton Reeves to Clint Eastwood, an actor and director, and Jacelyn Ann Reeves, a flight attendant. Scott grew up in Hawaii. He has a younger sister, Kathryn Eastwood, and several half-siblings.

CONSCIOUS OF USING THE FAMOUS LAST NAME

Scott admitted that he was so conscious about nepotism at the beginning of his career, so he went by his mother’s last name – as Scott Reeves.

He has starred in a number of critically-acclaimed movies, including “Flags of Our Fathers” (2006), which was his screen debut and was directed by his father.

A CELEBRITY UNCLE

In 2018, the dashing actor gushed over his nephew. Scott's younger sister Francesca Eastwood had welcomed a baby boy, and he couldn’t have been happier to become an uncle.  

He uploaded a photo of himself holding the adorable newborn to his chest in front of a gorgeous background featuring red and yellow leaves. Scott wore a grey shirt while his nephew donned a black coat and diapers. He captioned his post:

“Welcome to our newest member of the family. Little baby Titan. That’s a cute baby being held by an old washed-up actor uncle."

FORMER GIRLFRIEND'S DEATH

The 35-year-old actor has had his fair share of girlfriends, but according to his candid revelation to GQ Australia, the tragic death of one of his former lovers left him so heartbroken that he’s stilling finding it challenging to date another woman.

In 2016, Scott opened up about the loss in the September/October cover story of GQ Australia, saying that his girlfriend's death was the last time he cried:

“I dated a girl a couple of years ago who died in a car accident. [...] I’ve lost friends before; I’ve lost some great friends. But, I had never lost someone I had been really intimate with [...] in a relationship.”

LOST LOVE 

Scott dated Jewel Brangman, the former girlfriend who tragically died in a car crash in 2014. In 2013, Brangman posted several pictures to Instagram of her cuddled up to Scott, referring to him in several captions as her "partner in crime," "my better half," and "my love." 

Speaking to GQ Australia, Scott confessed he never called Brangman's father to send his condolences. "I still haven't found the right words," he said. The loss still sits with the actor to this day when he revealed how Brangman's death has made it harder for him to date:

"I think that really affected me in a way that … I don't know. Maybe it's made it harder for me to date."
