JERRY AND REBECCA WALKING IN LA >

CAPTION: Jerry helps Rebecca slim down Since signing on to star in X-Men 3, Rebecca Romijn has been working to get in shape with the help of an unlikely trainer: boyfriend Jerry O'Connell. The two have been seen running side-by-side on treadmills at fitness guru David Barton's gym in New York. Jerry wants Rebecca to make her third turn as Mystique her best, but she's not taking all of his advice!

JERRY'S KEEPING HIS REMODELED HOME NEAT

O'CONNELL KEEPS HIS HOME NEAT AFTER WINFREY MAKEOVER


Actor JERRY O'CONNELL is reluctant to let his male friends into his home, after OPRAH WINFREY updated his messy bachelor pad earlier this year (05).

Winfrey commissioned her favourite designer NATE BERKUS to revamp O'Connell's college dorm-style home and filmed the results for an installment of her popular chat show.

And the KANGAROO JACK star admits that since the makeover, he's become a bit of a neat freak.

He says, "I don't like my guy friends going in there. They don't use coasters. I make everybody pick up their shoes. If I eat off a plate, I immediately wash it."

O'Connell admits his girlfriend REBECCA ROMIJN is now the only one he can trust in his home.

REBECCA ROMIJN GIVES JERRY MODELING TIPS

ROMIJN GIVES O'CONNELL TIPS

8/19/2005

Kangaroo Jack star JERRY O'CONNELL was so nervous when he initially landed his gig as the face of Perry Ellis clothing, he asked his girlfriend REBECCA ROMIJN for modelling tips.

O'Connell, 31, graces billboard and magazines in ads for the fashion giant, but his 32-year-old ex-model lover helped give him the confidence boost he needed to take on the project.

He says, "I was nervous (about posing) at first, but because Rebecca used to model, she was like, 'Don't be afraid - it'll be cool. Just make sure you smile.'

"We actually practiced!"

FLATTERING WRITE UP ABOUT JERRY

8/21/05

This writer for the Valley Advocate had some nice things to say about Jerry and has some good theories as to why he's had a steady career in Hollywood.

Valley Advocate
The Genius of Jerry O'Connell

August 11, 2005
Dear Dexter
Dear Dexter,

Did you know that Vern is Cush? That is, the very same actor (Jerry O'Connell) who played everyone's favorite chubby whipping boy in Stand By Me then morphed, 10 years later, into the great Frank Cushman -- the ballyhooed Texas quarterback who Jerry Maguire lost to Bob Sugar the night before the draft. Can you think of any others like him? What makes him so special?

Dear Rod & Marcy,

Am I Dexter or am I Heloise? Of course I know that Vern became Cush. The metamorphosis of Jerry O'Connell from chubbo ( Stand By Me ) to adolescent superhero ( My Secret Identity ) to trans-dimensional genius scientist-hero ( Sliders ) to ethically challenged Texan quarterback ( Jerry Maguire ) to gruesomely murdered fratboy boyfriend ( Scream 2 ) to morose, six-pack swilling ex-BMOC sage ( Can't Hardly Wait ) to affable Boston detective with a hankerin' for Jill Hennessy ( Crossing Jordan ) is one of the great inter-textual journeys in modern mass media.

There are plenty of child actors who've made a respectable transition to adulthood -- Jason Bateman, Elijah Wood, Jodie Foster, Rick Shroder, Alyssa Milano, Anthony Michael Hall -- but there's something about O'Connell that makes his journey different, yellow, special. It's the sublime fusion of his mediocrity as an actor and the cultural centrality of his roles. How can an actor so staggeringly mediocre have managed to slide into so many seminal pop cultural moments?

I'll proffer two answers. The first is that he's very, very likeable. Like Drew Barrymore -- another kiddie actor made good -- O'Connell is cute, funny, gawky and unthreatening in just the right proportions. He's the guy on the football team who was still nice to the nerds and the fat girls in high school, the frat boy who prevents his brothers from taking advantage of the passed out high schooler on her pre-college tour, the straight guy who can unselfconsciously make sex jokes with his gay friends.

The other answer is that he's pretty wise, or has been managed by someone wise. Wisdom makes as big a difference in managing a Hollywood career as it does in any other career, perhaps more. (If you want conclusive evidence of this, compare Keanu Reeves, a dismal actor who's starred in many excellent movies, to Cuba Gooding, Jr., a fantastic actor who continues to find new ways to humiliate himself on screen and who holds the distinction of being the only actor to star in the two worst movies of a single year, a feat he achieved with his 2002 double-shot of Boat Trip and Snow Dogs.) O'Connell's made shrewd choices, and avoided some awful ones, Body Shots, Joe's Apartment and Kangaroo Jack notwithstanding.
