BUSY BODY
Muscle & Fitness|March 2020
Between prepping for his upcoming role in the new Guy Ritchie flick, collecting sports cars, fishing, surfing, rock climbing, and finding the time to stay in shape, SCOTT EASTWOOD can’t sit still—and he wouldn’t have it any other way.

TO SAY THAT LIFE IS HARD FOR SCOTT EASTWOOD IS A STRETCH, but his idea of easy living may be different than yours.

Scroll through Eastwood’s Instagram (he has 3.3 million followers), and you’ll see what we mean. He routinely posts pictures and videos of himself surfing and rock climbing (both successfully, we should add), deep-sea fishing, looking Buffon the beach while posing with babes, and standing next to the only other Eastwood more famous than he is—his father, Clint.

What was that like?” There’s nothing outright offensive about what Rogan said, but turning a conversation into a fanboy session about your guest’s dad is a little uncomfortable.

Eastwood let out a chuckle, nervously reached for the back of his head, and then folded his arms. He knew this was coming, it came up a lot, but Eastwood relaxed and then began to open up.
