Scott Eastwood – Eventually, The Dust Shall Settle

Scott Eastwood – Eventually, The Dust Shall Settle

Fate hangs like an invisible tapestry, woven together by the cosmic forces that may be. Whether or not this divine textile cloaks human will, of course, is an eternal question, and one which we’ll perhaps only have clarity on as the curtain makes its final call. The dream of seeing yourself on the silver screen, of your likeness writ large on celluloid, remains a dream as prevalent in the City of Angels as its taco trucks or tummy tucks. For a young Scott Eastwood, the vision of cinematic stardom perhaps seemed not a dream, but a destiny—no matter how far he distanced himself from that tapestry that draped presumably every early doorway.

The actor, whom we photographed near his home outside of Austin, TX, for his cover story, has a resumé that boasts a nearly two decade-long career, which has seen him in roles from Nicholas Sparks adaptations to blockbuster war flicks. When deliberating on roles to take, Eastwood remarks that he tends towards “ones you read on the page and say, ‘That’s interesting. That’s left of center. That’s an oddball thing to do.’” Since his feature film debut in 2006’s Flags of Our Fathers, Eastwood has joined Brad Pitt’s tank crew in the World War II drama, Fury, played whistleblower Edward Snowden’s boss at an NSA facility in Hawaii in Snowden, and piloted the 268 foot tall Gipsy Avenger in Pacific Rim: Uprising. It’s this attraction to extreme context and critically integral characters that Eastwood has built his career on, and his forthcoming role in Guy Ritchie’s Wrath of Man is no different.

Eastwood shakes his head at the recent experience working with the legendary outsider director. “There’s the old saying—‘never meet your heroes’—right? This totally proved that wrong. Guy Ritchie was my hero, I loved his movies, and I loved working for him. He’s an absolute gentleman, a badass, he’s funny. He thinks on his toes. It was a dream come true.” This dream come true also features additional characters, as this picture based on the 2004 French thriller, Cash Truck, reunites Scott Eastwood with Jason Statham, whom he worked with on the 2017 installment of the prodigious Fast & Furious franchise, The Fate of the Furious. Statham also sees himself back in Ritchie’s orbit 15 years after 2005’s Revolver. It all feels like a dream, but it’s arguably a recurring one.

Shrouded in mystery, the ideas, plot, and tone of Wrath of Man remain under wraps for the time being. With not even a trailer to offer a morsel of what Ritchie has been cooking, we’re left to wonder what he’s done with Cash Truck. The source material follows Alexandre Demarre, who works as a security guard for the Vigilante armored truck company. As he peddles money around, he forms a bond with his degenerate co-workers, only to reveal the real reason he works for Vigilante. Similar to the Demarre character, Eastwood remains reluctant to share much about this particular second identity. When I ask about why I keep seeing all this hubbub online about his character, he coolly replies with, “I can’t really give that away, my friend. But, I’ll say that it’s a fun ride.”

This is a bummer, as one would hope to extract a bit more info than the murkiness that can be found online, but my interviewee is content to keep it a secret. What Eastwood won’t keep secret is what sets him apart as an individual. Of course, the assumption here is the potential advantages presented by the legacy forged by his father, actor and director Clint Eastwood. But this isn’t about hereditary inductions, connections, or abnormal workarounds, and Eastwood will have you know that.

Scott Eastwood, the man who continues the legacy of legend

Scott Eastwood, the man who continues the legacy of legend

He carries on his shoulders the last name of his father, the legendary Clint Eastwood, and although he started acting in 2006, today Scott Eastwood shines with his own light.
Scott Eastwood is the star, along with Orlando Bloom, in The Outpost , a recently released film on digital platforms.

Two hours from Los Angeles, in San Clemente, California, we found him one very early morning for photos and interview (with prudent distance), exclusively for Esquire Mexico.

SCOTT EASTWOOD YOUR PASSAGE BY ESQUIRE
Performing this shooting in the strange months of the pandemic that affects the world, was not an easy task. Trust us: NOTHING EASY.

At times we think that the circumstances would not occur and that everything would be canceled, not only because of the natural difficulties in integrating a team with as few people as possible, but because of the challenge of finding a location that would allow us to accomplish what was planned together. Diego Vourakis, our photographer, and his team.

However, we are the ones who believe that you have to try and try, try and try. They were days of overcoming obstacles when everything seemed to go against it, even getting clothes.

This happened when we were locked up in our houses, and cities like New York or Los Angeles, to mention just two of them, lived in their streets the intense demonstrations motivated by racist incidents in the United States.

The headquarters of many of the fashion brands were still closed (as even today), and it was not an option to have racks full of clothes to choose from.

Fortunately, the relaxed and positive attitude of Scott Eastwood and his team was always in our favor; The 34-year-old actor, who in the past worked as a waiter and parking valet, was always willing and cooperative from the start, and had no problem posing with his favorite jeans and t-shirts on stages where he feels like a fish. in the water: the beaches of his native California.

Scott Eastwood: Made In America

Scott Eastwood: Made In America

He drives a pick-up truck. He shoots movies with a broken ankle. He prefers a Texan ranch to an LA mansion. Scott Eastwood is the least Hollywood of film stars – and a damn nice guy to boot.
After our interview is concluded, Scott Eastwood is off to buy a pick-up truck.

“I need a pickup truck,” he tells me with the assurance of a man for whom life will not be complete until a pick-up truck is parked in his front drive. “The amount of work and activities I do where I’m sweaty or salty and shit. Stuff. Gear. I’ve gotta have a pickup truck.”

A pick-up truck isn’t very Hollywood…

“Well, I don’t think I’m very Hollywood.”

And you know what? He isn’t. An unlikely revelation for a number of reasons but undeniably true. Scott Eastwood is many things: smart, charming, loyal, frequently sweaty and salty – but Hollywood is not one of them.

For starters, he lives in Texas. Naturally, owing to the whole global pandemic thing, jetting over to the States is no longer an option (damn you, global pandemic! Never been to Texas…) so our interview takes place over Zoom, my afternoon, his morning. The time isn’t the only difference: naturally, being June, London is grey and wet, covered by one of those pallid drizzles that can’t be arsed to turn into actual rain but wants to hang around anyway, purely out of spite.

Eastwood chuckles when he hears this. “It’s not raining here – you wanna see what it looks like?” Grinning, he shows me an elegant backyard: a square of grass, rectangular decking, trees crowding over the wooden fence, and above the trees, a broad, blue Texan sky as big as the State. “It’s sunny and beautiful here.”

One nil to Uncle Sam.

Now, while it is possible to conduct an interview over Zoom, photoshoots are another matter – and much as it hurts this writer to admit, the pictures are a fairly substantial part of the feature. (Albeit worth a thousand words? Don’t be silly. Five hundred, tops.) For obvious reasons, a typical studio setup – stylist, groomer, assistants, mountain lions, etc – would be a little tricky to arrange. Fortunately, Eastwood has movie star looks but none of a movie star’s ego. Going a bit guerrilla is not a problem.

Eastwood and photographer Jesse Natale decamped to a mutual friend’s ranch in California and basically spent a few hours playing around. “He’s a normal dude,” Natale tells me over the phone. “He’s an adventurer, he surfs and hunts. He’s not unfamiliar with the big production, but if he has the option, he’d rather do it guerrilla style, and get a more natural and a more organic experience.”

Natale has known Eastwood for many years. The two men frequently collaborate for Eastwood’s clothing line Made Here – described on its website as ‘a company and brand rooted 100% in America’ – and the YouTube series In A Day, which Eastwood explains, “highlights things that America does, in a day, really well, across every sector. From energy to agriculture to our military – we cover a vast variety of categories.” The first episode was filmed on an aircraft carrier.

No, Scott Eastwood isn’t very Hollywood. A couple of years ago, I wrote of our two-time cover star Henry Cavill: “He might well represent the English gentleman as we’d like to envisage him: impeccably mannered, sharp of wit and suit, possessing a vigorous dash of derring-do. The type of chap who carves out an eloquent 50* on a pristine village green, then leaps into a Spitfire still wearing his cricket whites.”
