says he’s conscious that his profile has risen markedly since appearing in the acclaimed film, but still struggles to put his new-found status in context.

“I don’t know what all of these things mean yet. In terms of stratification, fame, renown, all these things, it’s like an ongoing process of trying to work out what it means.

“Obviously, I’m aware that people react slightly differently to me. It’s not like people were rude before, and suddenly they’re polite. But yeah, you notice a slight shift, that people are slightly more aware of you – in the street, or whatever.”

Scott Eastwood, 27, Dad Is ‘Old School’ I Worked Hard For Luxuries

resizedimageScott Eastwood worked hard for his luxuries. He is an actor and model, and his father is the legendary actor Clint Eastwood and he says his dad is ‘old school’ because he didn’t believe in giving his kids whatever they wanted. Eastwood appeared in the films Flags of Our Fathers and Trouble with the Curve for things that he wanted to get for himself, his father,

made him work for the things he wanted.

The ‘Longest Ride’ actor’s mother is Jacelyn Reeves and she is one who purchased most of the vehicles in which he owns,

the first vehicle he got from his parents wasn’t a luxury motor.

He said:

“My dad was pretty old school. I’ve had a job since I can remember and it’s not like he was like, ‘Hey, what kind of car do you want?’

“My first car was a ’91 Ford Crown Victoria that was $1,000. And I had to buy every car after that. I had to do it all.”

Scott told the new issue of People magazine: “My dad was always super-active and got me in the gym at a young age.

“He wanted me to be health-conscious. Healthy body, healthy mind; that’s what he preached to me.”

When Eastwood was younger, he was around movie sets a lot and,

he wasn’t always sure he wanted to be an actor.

He admitted: “People think I just started, and I laugh. I said I would give myself 10 years, and if it didn’t work out, I would be a firefighter or something. And things just sort of took off.”

The Cadillac Three’s Jaren Johnston And Taylor Swift Share A Lot In Common

Jaren Johnston says there is a lot he has in Common’ With Taylor Swift. The country singer from the group The Cadillac Three is hot in country music right now, Johnston in his opinion,

he actually shares a lot in common with the genre’s biggest pop star: Taylor Swift.

The band and Swift share a label called Big Machine Label Group,

but Johnston says that their similarities extend beyond simply having a label in common.

“She is a sweetheart, by the way. Her and I have a lot in common, because she writes a lot herself, and I do, too. Most people in country don’t,” he tells MusicRadar. “Listening to her writing, she’s putting herself out there. It’s hard to do that, especially as she was 14 when she started up all this s–t … When I was 14 I was popping zits, running on a skateboard and learning how to play drums. I was not together!”

There are some music fans who don’t consider Swift a country artist,

and others were sad to see her officially switch to pop music with the release of 1989, Johnston has nothing but kind words for the singer.

“I admire what she’s done and what Scott and them have built around her,” he continues. “I mean, s–t, she sold like 1.3 million copies [of 1989] in the first week — in a world where nobody’s selling anything! That’s impressive.”

Swift’s success with Borchetta at the helm is a good sign to a rising band like the Cadillac Three.

“For us, you want someone behind you like Scott that’s got balls and is not afraid to take a chance,” Johnston explains.

The trio isn’t worried that having a big label behind them will ruin their country outlaw aesthetic either.

“Well, Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams Jr., Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, all these f–king guys had record deals. It’s part of it,” Johnston says. “With us, we just have to stand our ground. I’d quit before we did something we didn’t want to do.

“We’re out here to do this for fun,” he adds. “If we were in it for the money, we would have quit a long time ago!”

More on Johnston, he is the son of drummer Jerry Ray Johnston, a former member of the band Bandana. Johnston was also a vocalist and guitarist in the Southern rock band American Bang and he is married to Evyn Mustoe.

Scott, 43, told sources that there’s elements of snobbery to those actors and actresses who work on the successful soap.

Maslen was on he show between he years of 2007-2013.

“They’ve asked me back and I’m lucky they’ve kept the door open,” he said. “But I want to have a go at other stuff.

“When you do a show like EastEnders it takes a while for people to forget you did it. They associate you with it.”

He continued:

“I didn’t want to go back just 18 months after leaving. There is an element of snobbery with soaps.

“It means people in the industry don’t see you as an actor, they see you as a commodity.”

“There is always a catch in this industry,” he claimed. “In the kind of acting I’d like to do, people would look at EastEnders and say, ‘You don’t want to touch that’.

“But we’ve all got to pay the bills and work. When I made a deal to do EastEnders that was my choice for my own reasons – for my family, to get a house.”
