Scott Eastwood parked cars before acting

Scott Eastwood used to park cars for a living.

The 'Fury' actor has admitted he had to do a string of odd jobs before he landed a career in the entertainment industry because his famous father Clint wouldn't help him get a foot in the door.

Speaking in Nylon magazine, Scott said: "I parked cars, did construction - anything on the side to make extra money, my dad wasn't a guy who gave handouts, so I had to go work for it."

The 29-year-old star initially used his mother Jacelyn Reeves' maiden name when he auditioned for roles but then decided to embrace his dad's last moniker and landed a few acting gigs.

He explained: "I just thought, 'Oh, this is silly. If I'm doing this, I've got to carry on the Eastwood name.' "

Although Scott's career has taken off, he has admitted he's got no desire to move to Hollywood after ditching the celebrity scene for Cardiff-by-the-Sea in San Diego, almost eight years ago.

He explained: "There's no bulls*** here, no pretentiousness, no one trying to climb a social ladder. It's just people living their lives, and I'm very happy here."

Meanwhile, Scott recently admitted Clint, 84, has been the single biggest influence on his career.

He said previously: "I hate watching myself back because sometimes they'll use a take you think you could have done better, but I know I'll get better if I work at it. My dad always used to say, 'Show up, don't complain, listen and learn.'

"My dad was always clear that anything I did, I should do well."
