Scott Eastwood: Boys will be boys

Scott Eastwood doesn't think it's unusual for actors to "butt heads" with their co-stars.

The 29-year-old son of movie megastar Clint is paving his own way in the industry, with parts in Diablo, Snowden and Suicide Squad coming up.

He also bagged a role in Fury, the brutal war film that co-starred Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf. There were reports Scott and Shia clashed, but the star reasons boys will be boys.

"Making a movie, there are going to be times when you butt heads, especially when there's a lot of testosterone on set," he diplomatically told the British edition of Glamour magazine.

Luckily there's less of that in The Longest Ride, a romantic film that co-stars Britt Robertson and tells the story of a young couple whose path crosses with a much older man.

He's sure to make even more girls fall in love with him in the flick - not least because of his impressive physique.

"You only get one body - it's really important for me to keep it in shape," he explained.

"When my body's healthy, my mind's healthy, and I'm happy."

The Longest Ride is based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, just like The Notebook, which launched the career of Ryan Gosling.

Scott remains modest and doesn't expect the same level of hysteria - he's simply happy to be making good movies.

"That's what my dad has done for years, and that's what I want to do," he smiled, adding he's "1,000 per cent" influenced by Clint.
