Sam Worthington Attends G’Day USA: Australia Week

While being interviewed on the photo set for Vogue Magazine, Sam Worthington(Avatar & Terminator: Salvation) said of  James Cameron, ” He picked the crazy, young, Aussie.”  This may cause a bit of confusion for some because the actor is Brittish born;however, he did grow up in Australia.   And his accent which accidently pops up in both films is clearly Australian.
