Fate of the Furious actor Clint Eastwood said his father and legendary actor-director Clint Eastwood, made him work his way to the top, reported Daily Mail.

"I came to Hollywood to try and do something and nobody took me seriously," Scott, 31, told the magazine. "Everyone brushed me off saying 'You're Clint Eastwood's son, you're not a real actor’. Some people are still like that. I never thought I would last in this business, but it finally seems to be working out."

In fact, Scott says Clint, 86, never threw money his way. "My dad never gave me a cent," he said. "He made me work for everything. Man, he was hard on me, but it hardened me and gave me drive."

The Unforgiven actor is also behind his son’s fit physique. “My dad was a machine about exercise," Scott said. "He showed me how to lift when I was 14 or 15 — he gave me some advice, and then left me to do it on my own."

Clint is also dad of Kimber, 52, Kyle, 48, Alison, 44, Kathryn, 29, Francesca, 23 and Morgan, 20. He shares Kimber with Roxanne Tunis; Kyle and Alison with Maggie Johnson; Scott and Kathryn with Jacelyn Reeves; Francesca with Frances Fisher; and Morgan with Dina Eastwood.
