My life doesn't change. I still have to go out and work hard every day, and do the best that I can do. I'm a third generation Californian, and there's a lot of talented, good-looking guys in California, so I'm just happy to be working, and lucky to be working.— Scott Eastwood
The most competitive Scott Eastwood quotes that may be undiscovered and unusual
I want to be a man's man - not a kid actor or a glitzy pop star but a no-bullshit leading man.
I have tough skin. I don't really read any of the comments unless they are positive. I don't accept that much negativity in my life. It's not an option.
I grew up on movie sets, getting to see storytelling happen up close.
I couldn't say a specific thing, but the media is not really held to high standards anymore.
A cross between Leo [DiCaprio]'s character in Catch Me If You Can and .
.. I don't know, I really like any of his movies.
My dad is really old school: "Whatever you do, just be the best at it.
" He didn't really care if I was a plumber or a roofer. It didn't matter what I did. He said, "Go out and find out what you like to do, and be the best at it."
[I normally go-to] whiskey on the rocks. Or a beer. Or with dinner, a glass of white wine.
I had fun to be a little bit of a nerd.
I don't want to talk about the vampire schedule. That's just gonna upset me.
There's the acting side of it so you work with a coach.
Dissect a script. If it's a character, then obviously a character study. Just depends on if there is training needed.
Working with David Ayer...the guy is a great filmmaker.
Nap time over. Gonna go be active. Do it people!!! In the end all you have is your health.
There are 16 year olds competing at the olympics and i still push on pull doors & struggle getting through the whole day without a nap.
I just do what Clint Eastwood does: Keep moving forward.
You can't look back or think about that kind of stuff too much. You just keep making movies; hopefully you make some good ones.
I feel like it's really important for an actor to play different roles so people can see, "Oh, he can play that guy or he can play this guy." You're not just "THAT guy," that cowboy guy, that whatever guy. Then you are limiting yourself.
We spend a lot of time trying to keep all that stuff very private.
In this day in age, it's impossible. It's out in the ether and people send stuff to my house all the time. People show up at my house sometimes.
Oliver Stone. Is that not enough?
It would be creepy if you knew my home address.
I mean, there's obviously only one Leo [DiCaprio] but I look at guys like Mark Wahlberg and Tom Cruise and think I'd like to have that type of career... that would be really great if I could have that.
Everyone has been really accepting and brought me into the family.
I had a lot of fun shooting it [ Fast 8].
I hate watching myself. It's terrible. It's horrifying.
I never understood actors who could just wait around.
My father's definitely old-school. And he raised me with integrity - to be places on time, show up, and work hard.
I lived with my mom in Hawaii until I pissed her off.
And then I came to live with my dad and pissed him off. He made me hustle, and claw, and fight. That's all stuff you want. You want that drive.
I like a lot of Tom Cruise's roles, he's this action hero.
I thought this was pretty timely and it was pretty interesting [to film in Snowden].
Not write, maybe develop. Direct, sure. As an actor, you work on so many films, you sort of start to see who directs well and who doesn't.
They [media] don't care if they're hurting anybody's family or hurting their reputation. The most interesting thing about it is that it's people doing it to other people. It's somebody who has a sister or a brother or a daughter or a son or a family. They don't care.
I remember something Clint Eastwood told me early on.
I don't remember how old I was when you told me this, Dad. But you said, "As an actor, I never went back to my trailer. I always hung out on set and learned." That stuck with me.
What I've discovered from working with my father is that I'm still learning.
I'm just a kid in this business. And I've seen from my father transitioning into being a director, that's where the power lies. And, like he says, it's feast or famine for an actor. If you're not creating your own material, then you're just fighting for whatever's out there. I definitely have the desire to go to the other side.
I grew up on movie sets and traveling the world with my pops.
What Clint Eastwood meant was when you are directing and starring in a film, there's a temptation to spend more time on the other actors' performances, and then when you get to your own work, you kind of go, "Oh, yeah, well, let's cut that." And he said, "Take your time and make sure you do your work right." It's especially good advice if you're going from one career to another.
Romantic dramas? I love The Notebook. Titanic was great. Classic.
My father always told me that. "Nobody knows anything, so don't listen to anyone else."
It's hard to nap on Saturday or the weekends.
I'm just looking to be in the best movies possible and do the best work possible and try to become a better actor and make better movies.
Sometimes people just show up, which is kind of scary.
And then you are like, 'Okay guy... got to leave'.
You understand what good directing is, you can identify it pretty easily.
People assumed that I would have everything handed to me, but that couldn't be further from the truth. I was on my own just doing the grind.
They were actually really nice to me [in Fast 8].
We had BBQs every day on set. We had a lot of laughs and a lot of good times.
Be the leads of big films that are entertaining and maybe then cross over to stuff that moves people and has a little bit more texture to it.
I think you just learn a lot of stuff in general about all the stuff he [Edward Snowden] released. I think there's probably a lot that we don't know. That's what is really interesting.
Everybody's human. You are only on this planet for a little bit of time.
How do you forget that someone else is another person? No matter who they are.
I don't think that's an excuse.
I'm pathetic when it comes to the Internet and getting stuff done.
Keep your head down, work hard, and don't ever believe your own hype, because.
.. you just keep working.
I'm a fan of horror movies that have really good stories.
I think some of the most interesting stuff was seeing how the Dark Web works and seeing how easy it is for hackers to break into your computer or your bank account or your private information.
He [Oliver Stone] is great. I really like working with directors who know what they want and aren't afraid to tell you, "Do it like this. Don't do it like that."
