Scott Eastwood's Fifty Shades of Grey refusal

Scott Eastwood refused to audition for 'Fifty Shades of Grey'.

The 'Longest Ride' star was approached to take the leading role of Christian Grey in the erotic film - which eventually went to Jamie Dornan - and whilst he felt it could have been a "good movie" for him, he was unhappy that the producers wanted him to sign the deal before he was even tested.

He told Variety: "They wanted me to sign a deal before I went in and even tested for it, which to me is backwards.

"I thought it could make a good movie. The problem is, if you don't have a script, you don't know what movie they are going to make."

Meanwhile, Scott - whose father is legendary director Clint Eastwood - previously revealed his dad made him work hard for any luxuries he wanted.

He said: "My dad was pretty old school. I've had a job since I can remember and it's not like he was like, 'Hey, what kind of car do you want?'

"My first car was a '91 Ford Crown Victoria that was $1,000. And I had to buy every car after that. I had to do it all.

"My dad was always super-active and got me in the gym at a young age. He wanted me to be health-conscious. Healthy body, healthy mind; that's what he preached to me."
