An Investigation into Actor Jack O’Connell’s Past Relationships, as Seen in “Lady Chatterly’s Lover”

When a new romantic period flick presents itself to the streaming landscape, its inherent steaminess and replay-able sex scenes alone are enough to spawn obsession — whether it be over the film itself or its striking cast (think The Notebook). The most recent movie to have this effect is Lady Chatterley’s Lover, which was directed by Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre.

The story of married aristocrat Lady Chatterley (Emma Corrin), who finds herself smitten with the estate’s rugged gamekeeper, Oliver Mellors (Jack O’Connell), is adapted from the “controversial classic” of the same name written by English author D.H. Lawrence. The film tells the tale of a love triangle between Lady Chatterley and Oliver Mellors. As the years passed, Lady Chatterley’s affection for her husband, who was paralyzed, diminished, and she found herself increasingly isolated from the world. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Oliver will show up to fill her cup in more ways than one. Excuse our crassness.

It’s easy to see how the sexually starved noblewoman was swept off her feet by the dashing, zealous gamekeeper, as Jack (Unbroken) is a hunk in his own right. But at this point, it is necessary for us to shift our focus away from Oliver and toward Jack. Fans are getting flushed cheeks and beads of sweat on their foreheads because they want to know if the lead character from Lady Chatterley’s Lover is dating anyone. Let’s talk about the women he’s dated in the past.

In the year 2022, does Jack O’Connell have a girlfriend or boyfriend?

Jack is currently as single as a Pringle, despite his early success in the role of James Cook in the racy British teen drama Skins. At least, to the best of our knowledge. It would appear that he is a very private person.

However, the Daily Express claims that Jack has been linked to a number of famous women during his dating career.

Between the years 2007 and 2009, Jack O’Connell was romantically involved with Kaya Scodelario.

The publication detailed that Jack started a romance with his Skins costar and onscreen love interest Kaya Scodelario (The Maze Runner) — who played Effy Stonem on the show — in 2007. Unfortunately, the relationship between the two people ended in 2009, which apparently caused Kaya to suffer from a painfully broken heart.

She was quoted as saying in an interview that she gave to Daily Express that “it broke my heart when we finished.” I shut myself up in my room for an entire week, sobbing and worrying that the circumstance would never get better.

Even more surprisingly, she referred to Jack as her “first love.” It appeared as though the relationship had a complete and total effect on her.

According to what she told the Telegraph at the time, “it was everything to me at the time.” “Everything is a “first,” isn’t it, and it felt so wonderful, even obsessive, to experience something for the very first time. He turned out to be a wonderful first love. We are still very close with each other despite the fact that he is a wonderful person. Although we were both quite young at the time, it was a wonderful experience.”

Since then, Kaya has moved on and, as of 2015, she has been married to the American actor Benjamin Walker (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter).

“Jack will be in eastern Europe through the month of November as he continues filming the new 300 sequel there. He isn’t able to travel to the U.K. at all, as filming schedules are so tight,” a source told The Mirror at the time.
