Yahoo Celebrity

Clint Eastwood's son Scott is well on his way to making a huge name for himself in Hollywood, especially with upcoming movies like "Fury" with Brad Pitt, as well as his smokin' hot pics from Town & Country's October issue. But would you believe that being the child of an Oscar winner doesn't necessarily have as many perks as you might think?

The 27-year-old actor opened up to "omg! Insider" special correspondent Mary Kitchen while on location in London for his new flick, where he dished about his show-biz life with a famous father.

"I struggled for a long time just to get parts in movies ... people think it's an overnight success and then you're suddenly a movie star or an actor. But that's not the truth. The truth is it takes a lot of time to get there," the sexy star admitted. "I've been working for 10 years, doing odd jobs, any and everything to get by: acting in movies, small parts here and there."

Though he goes by the last name of Eastwood now, in his early days as a struggling actor, Scott used his mother's last name of Reeves when auditioning.

"The reality is, is that no matter what your last name is ... if you're not good, you can't go into an audition room. You can't get any roles."

What do you think about Scott trying to make it on his own? Watch the video to decide for yourself, and be sure to tune in to "omg! Insider" Wednesday night for more of Scott's one-on-one interview.
