Scott Eastwood Downplays Heart Throb Status, is Just Happy to Be Working

by at .

Scott Eastwood earned immediate celebrity crush status last year with his Town & Country photo shoot, but the up and coming actor is quick to shrug it off.

The same goes for his movie career - he's got four coming out this year alone, including Fury with Brad Pitt and Shia LeBeouf - which he's just as humble about.

"My life doesn't change. I still have to go out and work hard every day, and do the best that I can do," he said at the Sabatoge premiere in Los Angeles.

"I'm a third generation Californian, and there's a lot of talented, good-looking guys in California, so I'm just happy to be working, and lucky to be working."

Of course, all of those other guys don't get to call Clint Eastwood dad.

The younger Eastwood, 28, embarrassingly laughs off questions about whether it's a blessing or a curse to inherit the Oscar-winning legend's good genes.

"I don't think that you can look at it like that," says Scott Eastwood.

Typically, he adds, "I've had a lot of great opportunities most people dream about, so no, I'm just grateful to have the opportunities that I've had."

In the recent past, Scott also hasn't been shy about praising his actor/director dad, both for his career pursuits and the life lessons he's taught him.

"My father taught me not to overthink things," he told Town & Country's Top 50 bachelors issue back in February. "That nothing will ever be perfect."

All one can do, he says, is "just keep moving and do your best."

Safe to say he's making dad (and everyone else) proud so far.
