Jack O’Connell On Oscar Glory: “I’ve Already Got My Speech Written”
Cara Delevingne’s rumoured boyfriend has got his eyes on the prize…
In an exclusive sit down with the ex-Skins star, MTV News asked if the Oscars are lingering in the back of his mind, to which O'Connell replied: “Yeah obviously, since I was a kid, I’ve already got my speech written. It’s been that way for years.”
He continued: “I strive for it, you know. It’s a bit of a validation. But if it doesn’t go my way, I won’t have any sleepless nights. It’s just very flattering to be regarded as one in that category.”
The 24-year-old - who is rumoured to be dating model of the moment Cara Delevingne - also explained how his nearest and dearest are keeping him grounded: “I think there’s an underlining concern, because a lot of things could go wrong now.
"But I don’t intend to let that happen. So their role is pretty key – to keep me grounded; and they’re really keen to not alter their ways with me, which I’m grateful for.”
Jack’s five star performance in '71 is out now.
