Scott Eastwood is the most famous of Clint Eastwood’s numerous children. Having a legendary actor as his father, it is not uncommon for many to think that fame came naturally but that’s far from the truth as Clint is one of those dads who make their kids work to earn a name for themselves. Actually, he severally rejected Scott on many of his movies, including American Sniper (2014). This means that the massive figure on Scott Eastwood’s net worth is all his hard work.
In addition, Scott overlooked his famous last name, “Eastwood”, and rather went by his mum’s, “Reeves” – all in the bid to escape any sort of nepotism that may come with the former. It was only after finding his feet in Hollywood, that Scott started going by Eastwood. His independent hard work eventually paid off, with the actor landing spots on several box office successes.
Here, we bring you all the facts about Scott Eastwood’s net worth at the moment, and how the actor has built his wealth through the years.

Despite having a prodigious net worth of over $350 million as of 2019, Scott said his father never gave him a cent! Clint Eastwood rather made his son work for every dine and thing he has to his name.
For his own movies, Clint ensures that Scott tests for roles just like everyone else, most of which he never gets.
