Here’s a little irrelevant TMI for your day. I once had a dream that Cam Gigandet was flirting with me because he wanted to be my boyfriend, and he was the sweetest guy imaginable. I’ve loved him since the second I woke up. I swear that I’m not making that up, though I sincerely wish that I was, considering how much of an idiotic loser it makes me seem.
Anythisishumiliating, Cam Gigandet, my dream guy (literally) appears in Elle Magazine’s “Hot Guy, Cold Drink” series, and I don’t know about the drink, but they’ve definitely got the hot guy part down. Many may know Cam as the hunter vampire from Twilight, or the beautiful but dumbshit stupid Bible-thumper in Easy A. He’s done other movies, but I’d rather not go down that road because those two are the only that I thought were remotely good. And, I put Twilight as one of them, so that should tell you. I thought that Priest was predictable and eye-roll-worthy, and Bad Johnson… God, I wish I could forget that movie entirely, even though he went nude in it.
In his Elle interview, Cam comes off equal parts charmingly funny, down-to-earth, and slightly douchey. He basically describes himself as a total alien when it comes to social media, and I love that. He also talks about his obsession with porn, and I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I think that that’s really hott. However, what most people seem to be taking away from this interview is the expert level of shade that he is throwing at his former O.C cast members. When asked if he kept in touch with any of them, this was his response:
No. Actually, Ben McKenzie was kind of mean to me. I hadn’t done anything at that point and he was a little bit of an ass. But I love him. I think he’s a great actor and I love Southland.
What about Mischa Barton?
Mischa? I didn’t really…Was she there? I don’t even have memories of her.
Daaaaaaaaaaaamn! I really don’t want to sensationalise this and focus on the single negative aspect of the entire interview… but DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMN! In my tween/teen years, I used to be obsessed with The O.C. I don’t really remember Cam very well on it, though, which means by the time that it was on, my passion for it had started dropping (like the rest of the world’s). Honestly, it had started feeling like a chore to keep up with it, so I definitely understand Cam’s feelings about it.
For the entire interview, head on over to Elle; it isn’t long but totally entertaining.
