Scott Eastwood: Clint is 'old-school'

Clint Eastwood is "old-school".

The 86-year-old actor and director's son Scott Eastwood has revealed his father has always taught him the importance of integrity and working hard.

He said: "It's an interesting time. 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 p****d her off. And then I came to live with my dad and p****d him off ...

"She [his mother] was definitely a little more understanding. You get the law laid down, you know. I look at it like weapons in my war chest now. He made me hustle, and claw, and fight. That's all stuff you want. You want that drive."

Whilst Clint added of Scott: "He was a pretty good kid. Not much of a problem. His mother gave him a lot of values, because she's a good person."

And the 'Gran Torino' star would be keen to work with his son, 30, on a movie soon.

He added: "I haven't done a major project with him yet. But I'll probably be begging him for one soon enough. But he always came in and did a good job.

"And he's now graduated to better roles, and the chicks are all calling and asking where Scott is. They used to ask where I was. Now they're going, 'What about Scott?'"

Meanwhile, Scott has revealed his father taught him to "take every opportunity to learn from him".

He said: "I've tried to take every opportunity I can to learn from him. I flew to Georgia to see him work on Sully. Every chance I get, I'm trying to be on set with him."

Speaking in a joint interview with Esquire magazine, Clint added: "He's doing great. He's on the right track."
