Scott Eastwood: Butt naked is good

Scott Eastwood is so relieved he didn't say yes to Fifty Shades of Grey.

The actor is trying his hand at romance in new film The Longest Ride, which also required him to shoot a nude scene.

While many actors get nervous, the 29-year-old took it in his stride.

"Oh, f**k it! But my butt looks good, right?" he grinned to the German edition of Grazia. "It was about sex, where you just happen to be naked."

Things could have been even racier for Scott, who was considered for the role of Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey. He decided not to go for it and it ended up becoming Jamie Dornan's part.

"I am so relieved! I'm happy for Jamie, but it's not the direction I wanted to take my career in. You just get so typecast," he explained.

Britt Robertson appears opposite Scott in The Longest Ride, playing his college student love interest. The actor is currently single and has a very realistic view of relationships.

"True love is about sacrifices! It's just too easy to believe in the fairtytale romance," he said. "But it's actually hard work, and that's true for everyone. When I want to be with someone, I'll do anything to make it work, I'll risk it all."

The Longest Ride hits UK cinemas in June and focuses on Britt and Scott's young couple, whose paths cross with an older man who'll change their lives.
