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.”

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
