Unbroken's Jack O'Connell Used to Be a Rascal, But Now He's Matured & Is 'Quite Boring'!

Jack O’Connell breaks out into a run while wearing his fancy suit in this new feature from GQ‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 24-year-old Unbroken star had to share with the mag:

On being a bit of a rascal: “‘Jack the Lad’ was on my school report. It used to say that my Jack the Lad mentality was disruptive to myself and everyone else’s education.”

On maturing: “I’m not trying to have the most fun I’ve ever had ever, anymore, you know? That used to be the mentality every time I left the house. But things are going the way I want now. I’ve got my plants on my roof terrace, and I like watering them. I’m quite boring.”

    Jack was a perfect pick to play Louis Zamperini. Well done!

  • jean

    He’s an amazing actor! Keep up the good work Jack!

    Jack is a rascal.. and I hope after Unbroken his career soars. It is very nice to see some new names on the big screen.

    he looks great in that photoshoot too. Great sense of humor. Down to earth. Angie was right.. He is not affected. Please let it stay that way.

    i think he has more in common with louis z than we know. brilliant performance – starved had to put on an american accent did so much of physical exertion etc and made it so believable – hope he goes far

  • norah mackenzie

    he seems more genuine than so many other british actors – maybe because he isnt as polished as them and has to work harder

  • trt

    So glad that Angie picked him for Unbroken. His star has risen so hopefully, he will follow Brad’s advice to take it in and do it slowly so he can pick and choose the good ones.

    Another film of his title 71′ also received good review.

  • Mulan

    I like Jack and will most definitely see “71″.

  • Stoner

    Absolutely loved him in unbroken.

  • JPFamily

    I adore Jack and he looks great in this photoshoot, well done to him.
    He was a fabulous choice to play Louie and did him proud, as well as Angie.

    Saw him in both Starred Up and ’71 also, stunning actor, what a talent, he will go far after such an amazing performance now in Unbroken.
