Southpaw is an action packed film starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams. It centers around the world of boxing. In this drama, there are piles of money, flashing lights, bloody black eyes, and pretty ring girls. K&N Calendar model, Caitlin O’Connor, stars in the movie as the lead ring girl. She has multiple cameos in the film: standing beside an announcer inside the ring, smiling behind 50 Cent in one scene, and toting a numbered card around the ring. Caitlin shares, “I spent two weeks on set near my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I even got to bring my grandmother to set as a background actor in the audience for the boxing scenes!”

This experience was exciting, but nothing new for Caitlin. She has worked as a TV host for Maxim, Arsenic TV, and the Chive. She has also modeled for Target and Macy’s. Life in front of the camera is familiar and comfortable for this Pennsylvania native. She also works on social media brand partnerships. Perhaps the most exciting tidbit, Caitlin tells us, “I am producing four feature films.” This girl is on her way to superstardom.

Caitlin grew up in Pittsburgh. She had a pretty typical childhood. She attended school, finished homework, and watched TV. When Caitlin was a young girl, she was obsessed with SciFi. She enjoyed "Dawson’s Creek" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Soon enough, she caught the acting bug.

She attended Uniontown Area High School where she cheered. She also took dance classes. Caitlin comments, “I hated going to class and graduated high school six months early to start attending UCLA.” Here, at university, she was a member of Pi Beta Phi and Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society. An English major, she spent her days reading and writing, but another path was waiting just ahead.

Caitlin broke into the world of modeling through an opportunity at UCLA. She was a Bruins Bear Wear model. For this first gig, she was only 18 years old. Bruins Bear Wear gave way to bigger things, and Caitlin soon found herself with a bevy of clients. Again, her resume is packed with big-name brands—Maxim, The Chive, Target, Macy’s, K&N, and many others.

Now in Los Angeles, California, Caitlin is constantly working. Always on the job, she lists her hobbies as, “sleeping, working, sleeping.” She is committed to her career, but not afraid to treat herself. She admits, “The day I got my first big paycheck, I bought a classic car—a 1971 Lincoln Continental.” A spitfire with a solid work ethic and bright future, Caitlin O'Connor will continue to be successful in sunny L.A. and the world over.
