Scott Eastwood says his father Clint has offered him some sage advice about his career, telling him never to believe his own hype.

The 29-year-old son of movie veteran Clint is fast establishing himself as a successful actor in his own right.

And Scott said having a father so skilled at his craft has been a major benefit for his career, as he has been able to offer him the best advice.

“Just keep your head down, work hard, and don't ever believe your own hype, you know because… you just, keep working,” Scott told FOX411 when asked about the best advice Clint had given him.

Scott stars as a professional bull rider in upcoming movie The Longest Ride, adapted from a Nicholas Sparks novel.

While being the romantic lead is a new experience for Scott, he admits he has always been a fan of the genre itself.

“The Notebook made me cry and I thought it was a fantastic movie,” he said.

Scott appears alongside Britt Robertson in the film. And Britt added in the joint interview that she feels The Longest Ride brings to light just how much chivalry is missing in daily life.

“Chivalry is not dead as they say however you know, the love letters, and old the fashioned calling and making like straight hard plans and not being fickle, that does not exist anymore,” she said. “I don't stand for it but it doesn't exist. I know, I have a lot of girlfriends who are struggling out there to find good men.”
