Angelina Jolie Has A "Huge Heart" Says Jack O'Connell
The actor and his Unbroken co-stars positively gushed about Ange...
Given that she's one of the world's biggest superstars, its not surprising that most people have preconceptions about actress-turned-director Angelina Jolie.
But the cast of her latest movie, Unbroken, say those assumptions couldn't be further from the truth.
The film's star Jack O'Connell positively gushed about Ange during a recent interview with MTV.
He told our Bluey: "I didn't expect her to be so equal and human. That was my own preconception - perhaps a wrong one, an unfair one.
"But she's considered royalty, she doesn't have to entertain people if she doesn't want to. She's got this huge, gigantic heart on her."
The Brit actor even went on to explain how he found Jolie to be an inspiration: "I guess what surprised me was her capabilities. That was a tough shoot. It was the toughest thing I've ever experienced.
"While I was feeling rough she was right there in the middle of things, head down and swinging and devoted. She's a devoted mother, a devoted humanitarian and I've taken a lot of inspiration from that."
And O'Connell's co-stars couldn't agree more.
"Her lack of any sort of entourage or assistants… She was there, with a rucksack coming to set every morning and getting involved in whatever it was on the day," said Luke Treadaway. "She was just one of the crew, really."
Ross Anderson was also surprised by the attention he received from the megastar, saying: "She had an amazing ability to orchestrate that amount of crew on huge sets, but then come to us and spend the time on intimate moments."
Unbroken was named one of the American Film Institute's top 10 films of the year, and has been nominated for four Critics' Choice Movie Awards, including Best Director.
