Scott Eastwood has revealed how the tragic death of one of his girlfriends has left him so heartbroken, he still finds it difficult to date.
The Suicide Squad actor, 30, opened up to GQ Australia about the deadly crash that still haunts him.
“I dated a girl a couple of years ago who died in a car accident,” he said in the September/October issue of the magazine. “The f***ed up thing is, it was a fender bender, and there was a recall on airbags.
“Her airbag exploded. It shot a projectile through her body. It split her spine, and … I’ve never told anybody that,” he confessed.
Eastwood didn’t reveal the girl’s name but continued: “I’ve lost friends before; I’ve lost some great friends. But, I had never lost someone I had been really intimate with. Maybe it’s made it harder for me to date.”
“It’s easy to fall in love when you’re young, right? And then you start to realize those feelings of love and stuff, passion, love, lust, sometimes they come very quickly, but they can also leave quickly.”
He also admitted: “I still never called her father. I still haven’t found the right words.”
He will next feature in the movie Snowden which is set for release in the fall.
