Jack O'Connell on Working with Angelina Jolie in 'Unbroken': 'She Strives For Selflessness'

Jack O’Connell suits up to attend the premiere of his latest film 71 held at the Princess of Wales Theatre during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival on Wednesday (September 10) in Toronto, Canada.

That same day, the 24-year-old actor was spotted arriving at Pearson airport with his bags in hand ahead of the premiere.

Jack recently opened up about working with Angelina Jolie in their upcoming film Unbroken.

“Selflessness. She has that ability. She strives for it and that’s how she presents herself to people,” Jack expressed (via HitFix). “You really feel a level of compassion from her, which that then becomes a passion project. There’s a personal investment. And she’s nervous for me, which kind of helps me gain a perspective of what I can sort of expect. And there’s no guarantee that I’m going to respond to it well whatsoever, but as long as I acknowledge that and just take it day by day — I’ve got some good people around me and Angie has always offered support if I ever needed it. So yeah, and look, there’s a lot of positives in it, too. I’m finally where I want to be with my career, and so now it’s just a case of staying here and making the right decisions in order to, like I say, earn my keep.”
