Cam Gigandet Covers Men's Health

Cam Gigandet Covers Men's Health

Twilight hottie Cam Gigandet counts on one man for a killer physique, a great career, and general happiness: himself.

The 26-year-old actor is the cover boy for the December 2008 issue of Men’s Health. Here’s what he had to say:

Accepting fear in acting as his roommate: “You’re selling a product that happens to be yourself. That brings out so many insecurities. There’s so much fear of failure because it’s so rampant, it’s everywhere. It was paralyzing to the point where I couldn’t get work or enjoy anything. To get where I am, I had to learn to live with fear. It’s all fear. You have to let go of that and keep moving forward.”

On working like hell: “Well, you can always do what the O.C. kids did and hate your work. When I was on that show, they all just wanted to go on and do bigger things. I imagine that’s hard. You can be as frustrated as you want, but you still have to show up for work. People don’t want to hear about it if you’re frustrated with your big career break. You still have to have a sense of gratitude and professionalism no matter what you do. I’ve been mad at everyone and everything at times. Deal with it at home.”

    Wow, the younger cast members of the OC must have been real hard to work with. Tate Donovan made similar remarks about their poor attitude a while back.

    THIs guy is awesome. he was brilliant as Volchok. But i didn’t know the kids in the o.c. were THAT frustrated. In fact none of them has done that much after the o.c.

    Benjamin mckenzie has just got a new role in a series. and before that he did this one movie.

    Rachel bilson did one movie as well.

    Adam did like 3 or 4 movies but he is not b list even
    and misha…well i think i have only seen her in websites like this.

    I think the oc kids need to be grateful because that was like their big break really.
    lame. that’s so annoying.
    haha because i love the oc.
    screw them then!
    haha but not the oc, i still love the oc.
    and well, he’s so sexy..
    and he sounds like a relatively nice boy..
    and he has such a good body.
    and I can’t wait for him in twilight, although I’ve seen his hair in it, and haha, not that attractive. But, I can learn to deal especially as he’s like shirtless (x

    I’m glad he has that good head on his shoulders to go with his rockin’ abs. He has the proper attitude about the business of show.

    Rachel bilson didn’t just do one movie, she atleast did 2 movies which were Jumper and The last kiss. I forget if she did more but i think ive seen it but she didn’t have a big role. Mischa was in i think 1 movie after the oc and it is important enough to talk about.hahaha

    He was awesome as Volchok but he’s always playing Volchok even in his movies.

    holly Says:

    Rachel Bilson may have gotten the most press after the OC but that’s because of her clothes and who she was dating and not because of the quality of her acting. She was skewered by the critics in Jumper

    kourtney Says:

    That makes me really sad and angry to hear that all the other kids on the OC wanted to do was to move on to “bigger and better things”. For 4 years I tuned in every week to watch that show (I was absolutely in love and obsessed with it!!) and it makes me really annoyed to know they all really hated it. But whatever, no matter what they will always been known as Marrissa, Ryan, Seth and Summer.

    As long as they privately b*%tch about it that’s ok. The only two who are on record as having complained to the press when they were still on the show were Mischa Barton and Rachel Bilson. Mischa as early as season 2 said that being on a long running show might be bad for her film career. Check it. She said it. Rachel was interviewed before season 4 and she said the show was over, it was dead.

    Adam and Ben may have been as frustrated but they didn’t blabber to the media about it. They never whined like the two girls did.

    Cam’s on the cover of Men’s Health? He’s a nonstop chain smoker.

    Mel Says:

    Everbody knew about The O.C kids hating it. They were in their late 20′s playing HS kids. But yeah, must have been pretty hard for Cam to address them in such a way.
