He’s been a household name since the 1960s thanks to his starring roles in films like Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars, and The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.
His celebrity only got more popular in the 197os and 1980s, and it really never slowed down. He transitioned from starring roles to directing, and was even mayor of the California city Carmel-by-the-Sea from 1986-1988! Over the span of 1964-1996, Clint had seven children – Kimber (1964), Kyle (1966), Alison (1972), Scott (1986), Kathryn (1988), Francesca (1993), and Morgan (1996).
A few of his children have followed in his footsteps into the world of acting, most famously his youngest son Scott. Scott started his career using his mother’s last name, Reeves, not wanting to ride on his father’s celebrity. But one look at him, and there’s no doubt that he is Clint Eastwood’s son.
Scott has said time and time again that although he has appeared in some of his dad’s films, he’s had to audition for every single one.
“I’ve auditioned for a lot, and didn’t get a lot,” he once told Conan O’Brien.
We always knew Scott looked like Clint, but we realized Scott was the spitting image of his legendary father in 2016. That’s when Scott dressed up as Clint’s The Good, the Bad and the Ugly character for Halloween. Take a look at Scott’s awesome costume below.
And look at Clint’s character in The Good, The Bad and the Ugly below.
Scott has appeared in the films Flags of Our Fathers, Gran Torino, Invictus, The Forger, Trouble with the Curve, Suicide Squad, Pacific Rim: Uprising, and even a cowboy romance film The Longest Ride.
Sometimes when we see Scott, we have to do a double take to make sure we didn’t travel in a time machine and are seeing a young Clint! Check out some more photos of Scott below.
Watch Scott talk about how Clint punished him as a child, and does a spot-on impression!
