“I came [to Hollywood] to try and do something, and nobody took me seriously,” the 31-year-old actor told Men’s Health magazine (via US Weekly). “Everyone brushed me off, like, ‘You’re Clint Eastwood’s son, you’re not a real f–king actor.’ Some people are still like that. I never thought I would last in this business, but it finally seems to be working out.”
“My dad never gave me a cent,” Scott added. “He made me work for everything. Man, he was hard on me, but it hardened me and gave me drive.”
