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.

Joining a discussion group will be lots of fun. You'll enjoy brainstorming with fellow visionaries. The idea for a community improvement project is worth developing. You and your neighbours will benefit from a beautiful gathering spot. It's easy to feel alienated in this technological age. Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
