AceShowbiz - %cScott Eastwood% opens up about his past relationship that ended tragically and still affects him greatly. The 30-year-old hunk covers the September/October issue of GQ Australia and reveals in the accompanying interview that he once lost a girlfriend in a car accident and that's probably why he doesn't date a lot today.
"I dated a girl a couple of years ago who died in a car accident," he tells the magazine and continues to detail how the girl was killed, "The f**ked up thing is, it was a fender bender, and there was a recall on airbags. Her airbag exploded. It shot a projectile through her body. It split her spine, and...I've never told anybody that."
"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," he explains and adds, "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."

Eastwood also talks about his famous actor/director dad %cClint Eastwood% elsewhere in the interview. He recalls getting smacked by his "very old-school" father after he made a mistake when he was younger.
"I had taken my younger sister, who was, like, 14, to this party. I left maybe to go get beer with the guys. And I left her and I didn't think about it at the time. Later, Dad found out that I'd left her there," he shares. He then reveals that his dad slammed him against the wall and wrapped his hands around the younger Eastwood's throat before punching him in the face.
"He popped me and said, 'You don't ever leave your sister at a party. EVER.' And it was very old-school, very old-school of him. He wasn't afraid. None of this new-age bulls**t where you can't even smack the kid because everyone's afraid of being judged or whatever. That wasn't the way that s**t went down in the family... If you did something wrong, you were going to get punished. I learnt quickly - you don't do that."
