The Canadian film producer, director, writer, editor and even inventor has proven himself as one of the most successful filmmakers of all time - his movies have grossed nearly six billion dollars worldwide.
While today, Cameron may be known for his spectacular movies complete with amazing special effects, his first few films were anything but special.
He began making low-budget horror sci-fi films and was part of a team that created lesser known films such as "Battle Beyond on the Stars", "Galaxy of Terror" and "Piranha".
However, his involvement in those films helped him develop the ability to create science fiction on film and it was his first big movie "The Terminator" that threw him into worldwide stardom.
Cameron's following films were all big hits and his 1997 blockbuster "Titanic" earned more than $1.8 billion dollars worldwide.
His last film, "Avatar" was an even bigger success than "Titanic" and it is currently the highest grossing movie of all time.
Today though, Cameron is fighting a different kind of battle.
Drawing parallels to his movie "Avatar", Cameron is opposed to the construction of a large hydraulic dam in the Amazon and has been fighting its construction for months.
