Gigandet is a 'natural' fighter

Cam Gigandet says his daughter is keeping him fit

Cam Gigandet has confessed that getting in touch with his arty side was a "challenge" in new movie Burlesque.

The Twilight hunk appears opposite singers Cher and Christina Aguilera as a piano-playing barman in the musical extravaganza, and found it a far cry from the action he is used to.

Cam told Men's Health magazine: "Fighting and punching people comes a little more naturally to me than making drinks and hitting piano keys. But you've got to love a challenge."

The 28-year-old former star of The OC and his girlfriend, Dominique Geisendorff, have a 19-month-old daughter, Everleigh Ray Gigandet, who the fitness fanatic says is helping to keep him in shape.

Cam revealed: "It's been great having my little girl. It's like having a workout 24 hours a day. I don't need to go to the gym! I'm chasing after my daughter everywhere she goes."

:: Cam's full interview appears in the Men's Health Jan/Feb issue, on sale December 6.

You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
