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

    Sam Says:

    oops I meant to say it ISN’T important enough to talk about.lol

    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.

    m Says:

    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.

    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.

    Loved him on the OC and Never Back down his body is killer! also he gives good advice i hate it when actors on a show ***** about it be gratful u got a chanc of a lifetime many will kill for. on a lesser note it must suck for the rest of the cast that Cam got cast in a movie that’s gonna be huge does Twilight ring a bell it all seemed they all wanted that on the show and Cam was the one who got bigger and better things HA!

    Diana Says:

    when asked in a magazine a few months ago (i forgot which one, but she’s on the cover) about there being an OC reunion down the line (since 90210 is back), rachel said that it was such a good time in her life, so why ruin it? and that some of the other cast members wouldn’t be willing to do it.

    Obviously, everyone knew that Mischa was over it first. Mischa has done 7 independent movies since leaving The OC. Two more are currently in the works.

    I remember Adam Brody complained a lot about how he hated being in his mid-20s and having to play a high school student taking his SATs.

    emma Says:

    so is it true that josh kicked mischa barton off the show for complaining so much? because apparantly she was playing up on set saying she wants to leave the show all through season 3 and josh had had enough of it cos she was so ungrateful. But then when she got asked about her character dying she seemed really bitter about it, so it didnt make much sense.. lyk if she wanted to leave n josh let her y wuld she be so pissed off? thats why im thinking he must have kicked her off in a not so nice manner. what interview did rachel say “the shows dead” in?

    When are Mischa’s 7 independent movies coming out? The last time she had a movie in US theatres was in 2006. Maggie Grace replaced her in Malice in Wonderland. She said she’s filming a movie in India in November. It’s the middle of November already.

    Sheldon Says:

    How dare he talk about The O.C kids like that… That basically started his career, where would he be now if he wasn’t Volchuk? Please!

    volchok Says:

    sheldon, he is just telling the truth, he is not trashing them or something and by the way is volchok not volchuk which makes me think that u didnt even watched the o.c. in the first place so back the **** off
