* JerkAss: An extension of Enforced Method Acting above, during filming of ''Terminator 2'', he was married to co-star Linda Hamilton at the time. To make her more cut and muscular, he pushed her to take steroids, which kept her a tad unstable. While not official, this was one of the reasons for their later divorce.

* ActionGirl: Appear in pretty much every Cameron movie. Though they don't always use violence, Cameron's female leads always are (or ultimately become) very strong and proactive. To quote MovieBob:

Cameron next worked on a sequel to Creator/RidleyScott's ''Film/{{Alien}}'', a film he was a big fan of. While filming in England, he repeatedly clashed with the crew, who considered him a poor substitute for Scott, especially over their practice of taking regular breaks that slowed down production and their taunting of his wife's role as producer. This caused initial cinematographer [[UnfortunateNames Dick Bush]] to be fired after about a month over CreativeDifferences, to be replaced by Adrian Biddle. The dispute culminated in a walkout after Cameron fired a cameraman due to a clash over lighting the xenomorph nest [[note]]said cameraman thought it would be a brilliant idea to have the nest really bright and visible and ruin the suspense[[/note]]; Cameron's wife managed to persuade the crew to return to work. These repeated disruptions forced the crew to work at a breakneck pace to finish the film before its release date, and composer JamesHorner was forced to write the score without seeing the completed film and record it in an outdated studio in about four days. Due to the lack of time, Horner was forced to reuse some motifs from previous scores, and Cameron had to hack it in editing to match the film without any input because Horner was busy elsewhere.

During the predictably torturous filming of ''Piranha Part Two'', Cameron had a nightmare about a chrome-plated torso crawling out of a fire. Based on this, he wrote the script for ''Film/TheTerminator'', lifting story material from Creator/HarlanEllison's ''Series/TheOuterLimits1963'' stories "Demon with a Glass Hand" and "Soldier." When no production company wanted to let him direct, Cameron founded Helmdale Productions and persuaded Orion Pictures to distribute the film. A relatively low-budget film at $6.5 million, ''The Terminator'' became a success, grossing a total of $78 million worldwide while gathering positive reviews and providing a BreakthroughHit for the creator and a [[StarMakingRole breakout role]] for Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger as the titular murderous cyborg. Meanwhile, Ellison noticed the plagiarism and successfully sued for some money and an acknowledgment in the film's credits. Meanwhile Cameron was involved in writing a draft for ''Rambo: First Blood Part II'', which was heavily modified for the film.

Cameron did not make a movie for twelve years after ''Titanic''. Instead, he created the TV series ''DarkAngel'', filmed various undersea documentaries and produced the 2002 adaptation of ''Literature/{{Solaris}}''. He returned to film in 2009 with the science fiction epic ''Film/{{Avatar}}'', which has surpassed ''Titanic'' by becoming the first film to earn over ''$2'' billion at the box office. Despite some controversy over the film's political stance, not to mention a plot that is fairly easy to predict (and a BrokenBase over whether that is a good thing or not), he is currently working on sequels for ''Avatar'', in addition to messing around with, of all things, '''[[AsteroidMiners asteroid mining]]'''. He broke the record for traveling down to the lowest altitude on Earth.

Added DiffLines:

** ''However,'' while it has been noted that certain actors keep popping up in Cameron's films, if you pay attention to the end credits you will notice recurring names among the crew as well. It's natural over his long career that Cameron has developed a regular group of professionals that he prefers to work with because they know what he wants, take his temper in stride, don't take his tirades personally, and do everything they can to make the film the way he envisioned it.

Cameron's films have certain common traits, such as: a ProductionPosse consisting of Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger, Creator/SigourneyWeaver, Creator/BillPaxton, Creator/MichaelBiehn, Linda Hamilton, Creator/LanceHenriksen, Jenette Goldstein and Creator/StanWinston [[note]]A lifelong friend, he was the genius puppeteer and makeup master who helped bring James' Terminators and Alien Queen to life.[[/note]];, the threat of nuclear war; the interaction between humanity and technology; shiny glowy aliens; [[ActionGirl strong female characters]]; and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers titles starting with either A or T.]] He is also infamous for his temper and dictatorial filming style (the crew on some of his movies wore t-shirts reading "You can't scare me, I work for Jim Cameron"), along with his tendency to go way over-budget and over-schedule during production.
