6 Things You Might Not Have Known About Cameron

"When I was young I wanted to be a zoologist and study animal behavior. That's basically what I do now, but with humans instead of lions and hippos."

"My favorite way to unwind is Transcendental Meditation. I practice for 20 minutes twice a day, and it helps keep me sane."

"Give me a night in over a night out any day. I love getting together with girlfriends at my house or theirs to cook, eat, dance and laugh."

"My secret talent? Chopping off the top of a champagne bottle with a sword. I learned how for a movie, and now it's my party trick."

"Being in my 40s is the best. I know myself better and make smarter choices. Life just gets easier as you wise up."

"I'm still a kid at heart. Really, I have the mentality -- and sense of humor -- of a 14-year-old boy."
