As Cameron himself admitted, he even learned how to read from subtitles. In the end, he confessed to his mom that acting as the dream of his life. She then realized that her charming red-headed little boy had all the chances, hired a photographer, and sent the taken pictures around all advertising agencies. This is how in 1998 his picture ended up on the cover of a glossy magazine, and two years later he appeared in his first-ever commercial.
