Scott Eastwood has opened up for the first time about one of the hardest things he's ever been through, the death of his girlfriend.
Speaking to GQ Australia, Scott tentatively revealed some heartbreaking details about her passing: "I dated a girl a couple of years ago who died in a car accident. The f****d 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 um… I’ve never told anybody that."
Naturally, it's still hard for him to this day and, naturally, it has taken a toll on his dating life: “I’ve lost friends before; I’ve lost some great friends. But, I’ve never lost someone I had been really intimate with. Maybe it’s made it harder for me to date."
It's just so sad! Scott continued: "It’s easy to fall in love when you’re young, right? And then you start to realise those feelings of love and stuff, passion, love, lust, sometimes they come very quickly, but they can also leave quickly. I still never called her father. I still haven’t found the right words."
We're not crying, you're crying. Scott has never revealed when this happened or her name, but People have reported his girlfriend was model Jewel Brangman, and she passed in 2014. Jewel's Instagram page, which is still public, shows photos of the duo around that time...
The only other time he's mentioned the accident was to J-14, when he reminisced about a sweet birthday party she threw him: "A lovely girl I dated, who actually has passed away now, I will always remember this and she’ll always have a place in my heart. She threw me a surprise birthday party. I was getting off of work and she convinced me to come back to her house and she had all of my buddies there for my birthday. People had flown in from all over who I hadn’t seen in a while and she threw me an awesome, barbecue party. It was the sweetest thing everyone has ever done for me."
We're sending all the hugs, Scott!
