Scott Eastwood Opens Up About Former Girlfriend's Death

The actor gets candid.

— -- During an interview for GQ Australian, "Suicide Squad" star Scott Eastwood opened up about an absolutely terrible tragedy he had to endure a few years back.

When asked about the last time he cried, the actor, 30, said, "I dated a girl a couple of years ago who died in a car accident.”

He described the horrific details of the accident, calling it "f----- up."

"There was a recall on airbags," he said of his former girlfriend's car. "Her airbag exploded. It shot a projectile through her body. It split her spine, and um...I’ve never told anybody that."

He didn't name the woman, but said this loss was one that still stays with him.

"I’ve lost friends before; I’ve lost some great friends. But, I had never lost someone I had been really intimate with, you know, like in that way, in a relationship. I think that really affected me in a way that...I don’t know. Maybe it’s made it harder for me to date," he continued.

Eastwood even added that he never called the woman's father, even after all this time because, "I still haven’t found the right words."

After leaving his younger sister at a party when he was just a teen, he said his father punched him for not looking after her.

"He popped me and said, ‘You don’t ever leave your sister at a party. EVER.’ And it was very old-school, very old-school of him. He wasn’t afraid. None of this new-age bulls--- where you can’t even smack the kid because everyone’s afraid of being judged or whatever," he said. "I learnt quickly."
