“It was probably the best thing dad could’ve done for me. He could have made it easy by I wouldn’t have learnt anything from that. I would audition for parts then drive back down to San Diego to work. My dad grew up during the Depression and he had to work for everything, including his early years as an actor. He believes you have to earn your way in life and I agree with him because I knew he could have helped me out with money. I’m proud Dad has finally got to see me make some good films.” – Scott Eastwood talking about his Dad with Sunday People.
