Scott Eastwood shuns Hollywood life

Scott Eastwood won't move to Los Angeles.

The 'Longest Ride' actor - whose father is screen legend Clint Eastwood - would rather lead a relaxed life in San Diego where he can pursue his hobbies than dwell amongst the bright lights of Hollywood.

He said: "I live in San Diego, I'm a surfer and I like the outdoors and I do a lot of fishing and outdoor stuff, and LA's just really not for me."

The 29-year-old star previously lived in Australia so he could pursue his hobby of surfing.

Speaking on 'Sunrise', he said: "I lived out there [in Australia] when I was about 20 years old- so almost 10 years ago.

"I lived in the Gold Coast, I lived right on Burleigh Heads, and right out in between Coolangatta for a little bit and down in Manly [in Sydney], Manly Beach.

"So I was sort of all over, and I just sort of chased the surf for a while."

In 'The Longest Ride', Scott plays a bullfighter but was forced to secretly ride the animal after being forbidden from doing so by movie bosses.

He admitted: "I sat on a lot of the bulls during the film!

"Of course Fox didn't want me to buck a bull, they said, 'Absolutely no way, the insurance company would not approve that' so I went behind their back and did it after we finished filming actually.

"It was scary, it was a bucket list item though. One of my best buds had done it and he told me pretty much if I didn't do it that I'd never hear the end of it."
