On the subject of bringing an authenticity to the entertainment industry, the 25 year-old actor talks about the difficulty to be yourself. O’Connell shares, “I just think that if you’re any different to how you normally are in any environment, not just Hollywood–if [being your normal self] is such a stretch for you–then you’ve got a problem anyway.”
Recalling if going to Catholic school has had an impact on his life, O’Connell confides, “It must’ve done, whether I like to admit it or not. I certainly can’t argue against it. It’s a powerful way of thinking and it can help you to acknowledge selflessness. There are a lot of bad sides to religion, but there’s also a lot of value in it.” Read more on HungerTV.com.
