At a Williams Racing event kicking off F1 weekend in Austin, Scott Eastwood (yes, that Eastwood) walked the red carpet before the star studded party.
Following red carpet appearances from Robin Thicke, Shaggy, Wyclef Jean, and Chloe Grace Moretz, Eastwood made his way over to chat with Austin.com. Since the actor moved to Austin years ago, we started things off by asking him his favorite thing about living in Austin. The answer is simple.
“The people,” he said. “Everyone makes everyone feel at home. Everyone’s polite. It’s great.”
Though our time with him was short, we couldn’t let Eastwood walk away without talking barbecue and tacos. His favorite place for barbecue: Franklin’s. His favorite place for tacos? It’s a toss up between Chuy’s and Matt’s El Rancho.
Following the red carpet reception, the evening’s festivities were hosted DJ Cassidy, whose ‘Pass the Mic’ series featured performances by Thicke, Shaggy and Jean.
The Texas-inspired soiree took place at the ACL Live at the Moody Theater where guests got to experience all things F1, courtesy of Williams Racing. The teams’ current F1 drivers are Alex Albon and Nicholas Latifi. They also recently signed American driver Logan Sargeant.
