Jack O'Connell: embarrassed by Clooney

Friday, May 20, 2016

Brit actor Jack O'Connell has revealed why working on set with Hollywood legend George Clooney left him red-faced.

The 25-year-old, from Derby, stars alongside the US superstar in new film Money Monster, which will be released on 27th May. The film tells the story of TV financial adviser Lee Gates (Clooney) and producer Patty Fenn (Julia Roberts), who are taken hostage by O'Connell's character Kyle Budwell after he loses his life savings.  

"He's very open-minded and likes a laugh and a joke," O'Connell revealed to Jon Holmes about working with the Oscar winner. "I was doing press ups and he came and stood behind me in front of the whole crew.

"He pretended to do exercises himself, but really corny ones. I was back on my feet red-faced anyway and I've got the whole crew laughing at me."
