GQ-MAGAZINE.CO.UK – Jack O’ Connell caught our attention when he was cast in Skins back in 2009 and since then he’s established himself as one of the most talented British actors of his generation. Not to mention he’s worked alongside some of the biggest names on the planet from Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken to George Clooney in next year’s Money Monster. Here’s a preview of the bad boy of acting’s cover interview and shoot…

On George Clooney (his co-star in Money Monster):

“On all fronts, in terms of the events he goes to, the charities he represents, the humanitarian work that he does. He set a good example for me. He’s a good man. We had a good laugh.”

On his past brushes with the law:

“I still have to remind myself to stay focused. Less so these days, but I am still nervous of what happens in my own time. I might react badly in certain situations that might hinder my future. So at the moment I’m between jobs. And I’m looking forward to getting back under it. I’d hate to find myself in a predicament that would potentially compromise what I’d like to achieve.”

On trying to stay out of trouble:

“You always encounter wankers and sometimes they get the better of you. I heard this saying about arguing with idiots. It goes: ‘Never fight an idiot. You’ll never win, because they bring you down to their level.’ So I’m trying my best not to be an idiot.”
