Scott Eastwood is an object of much sexual fascination. As it turns out, his somewhat aloof demeanor when it comes to women stems from tragedy. Speaking with GQ Australia, Eastwood detailed the death of a girlfriend in an automobile accident.
It's easy to fall in love when you're young, right? And then you start to realize those feelings of love and stuff — passion, love, lust — sometimes they come very quickly, but they can also leave quickly. I've lost friends before; I've lost some great friends. But, I had never lost someone I had been really intimate with. Maybe it's made it harder for me to date.
Eastwood admitted he still hasn't spoken to the woman's family since her death. "I still haven't found the right words."
