Scott Eastwood won the hearts of many women with his role in 2015's The Longest Ride. Even Taylor Swift fell for him, casting the handsome hunk as her love interest in her Wildest Dreams video.
The 30-year-old son of Clint Eastwood has had his fair share of girlfriends, but he revealed the tragic death of one of his first loves left him so heartbroken that he still finds it challenging to date.
Opening up about the loss to GQ Australia in the cover story for its September/October issue, the Suicide Squad actor said the unnamed woman's death was the last time he cried.
"I dated a girl a couple of years ago who died in a car accident," he said. "I've lost friends before; I've lost some great friends. But, I had never lost someone I had been really intimate with, you know, like in that way, in a relationship."
Eastwood called the cause of her death "f----- up."
"It was a fender bender, and there was a recall on airbags," he explained. "Her airbag exploded. It shot a projectile through her body. It split her spine."
He confessed he never called the woman's father to send his condolences. "I still haven't found the right words."
The loss still sits with him to this day. "I think that really affected me in a way that... I don't know. Maybe it's made it harder for me to date," Eastwood said.
Elsewhere in the profile, writer Adam Baidawi grilled Eastwood on his dating life, writing "Scott Eastwood loves plenty of girls."
While he's been linked in the past to Jana Kramer, Brittany Brousseau, and Nina Dobrev, he is currently single.
The Fast 8 star said his time tending bar as an up-and-coming actor was the ultimate way to meet women.
"That was probably the wildest time," he admitted. "It still beats out being in movies or whatever. It still beats out all that, a thousand times."
He also shed light on why he has yet to settle down. "It's easy to fall in love when you're young, right?" he said. "And then you start to realise those feelings of love and stuff, passion, love, lust, sometimes they come very quickly, but they can also leave quickly."
