Scott Eastwood has gone through a very painful experience that continues to affect him to this day.
During a candid interview with GQ Australia magazine for their September/October issue (which hits newsstands on Monday), the 30-year-old actor revealed the heartbreaking story of one of his girlfriends who died in a car accident, and admitted that the loss he went through after that tragedy is what may be the reason why he doesn't date as much today.
"I dated a girl a couple of years ago who died in a car accident," Eastwood tells the mag. "The f--ked up thing is, it was a fender bender, and there was a recall on airbags. Her airbag exploded. It shot a projectile through her body. It split her spine, and...I've never told anybody that."
Eastwood continued by saying, "I've lost friends before; I've lost some great friends. But, I had never lost someone I had been really intimate with. Maybe it's made it harder for me to date."
The young star adds, "It's easy to fall in love when you're young, right? And then you start to realize those feelings of love and stuff, passion, love, lust, sometimes they come very quickly, but they can also leave quickly."
Although Clint Eastwood's son has quickly become one of Hollywood's biggest heartthrobs since he came out on the scene, he admits that being a movie star hasn't necessarily helped him meet women—at least, not as much as when he was a bartender.
"That was probably the wildest time," he said. "It still beats out being in movies or whatever. It still beats out all that, a thousand times."
