Cameron: (on the controversial bathtub scene in 'Birth') If you knew how they film movies and how ACTRA and SAG protect children actors, then you would not be asking me this question. The only people stirring up the bath water in that scene was the media.
Cameron: (on whether he watches his own movies) As most actors/actresses I don't like to watch my own movies either and I never look at the dailies while filming. My favorite movies with me in them are Running Scared and Thank You for Smoking. I love those two and totally got into watching those movies that I forgot I was in them.
Cameron: (on acting) I will do this for as long as I can. The only con to acting and being this young is the school thing. You need to have 3 hours per day of school as well as all the work hours too. It gets very tiring when you are filming and then taken to a room to do school work. I never get any rest time. It is either work or school. Once you are an adult you get to take a nap in between shots.
