What's in a name? That which we call a Reeves, by any other name would still be an Eastwood!
Scott Eastwood has revealed that he hasn't always been known to the world as an Eastwood!
Clint Eastwood's son originally started acting under the name of Scott Reeves…his mother Jocelyn Reeves maiden name to break into the biz!
“I wanted to make it on my own and to at least see if I could do it by myself…Everyone wants to pitch Eastwood; that’s the cheapest game in the book. Can you make it on your own? Can you stand on your own two feet? If you’re not good, if you can’t carry your weight in the audition room . . . it doesn’t matter what your last name is."
Wowza! That's pretty deep!
Not using your famous parent's last name is something thats pretty rare in Hollywood. Most celebrity kids almost ALWAYS use their parents last names…a la Miley Cyrus, Lily Collins, Kelly and Jack Osbourne,and these others!
Scott also stated that fame isn't exactly his number one motivator.
“I got into this business because I like acting and I want to make movies. I would be happy living the rest of my life never famous."
Keep 'em coming!
