Years later, Scott Eastwood is still reeling from the death of his girlfriend.
The 30-year-old actor recently opened up for the first time about his experience with the ultimate heartbreak during an interview with GQ Australia.
“I dated a girl a couple of years ago who died in a car accident,” he explained. “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.”
“It was a fender bender, and there was a recall on airbags,” Eastwood continued. “Her airbag exploded. It shot a projectile through her body. It split her spine.”
Although the son of Clint Eastwood has since tried to move on, he says that the tragedy has had a lasting effect on his life, musing, “Maybe it’s made it harder for me to date.”
“I still never called her father,” he added. “I still haven’t found the right words.”
