It's an unforgettable moment in her new film Tamara Drewe - and has even been used on the movie's poster. But Gemma, who starred alongside Daniel Craig in A Quantum Of Solace, says she'll remember the sexy scene as one of her most uncomfortable. Oh yeah - I begged the director. I said, 'Please can you make them the shortest, most uncomfortable shorts ever! Gemma, 24, plays the title character in the film, a beautiful young journalist who returns to her West Country roots and causes chaos. After she turns up to a local shindig in her skimpy shorts, she becomes the centre of attention, lusted after by men and envied by local women. Gemma says: "The hotpants were part of the original book and I had to wear them for the punchline of the scene to work". And according to Gemma, it was the movie's director, Stephen Frears, who was determined to show off a little cheek.
She has enjoyed a spectacular rise to the top and St Trinian Gemma Arterton, 24, is not afraid to use her charms to seduce audiences. In her new film Tamara Drewe - out today - she sports the tightest pair of denim hotpants seen on a cinema screen since the Dukes Of Hazzard's Daisy. In the movie, based on a graphic novel by Posy Simmons, Gravesend-born Gemma plays a journalist returning to her home town in Dorset where she falls for, among others, a visiting rock drummer played by Dominic Cooper. So, Gemma, those hotpants are a bit, er, skimpy aren't they? It's a memorable scene, and ridiculously provocative, which is just what we both wanted. In fact, Stephen screentested me wearing several different pairs before he agreed on the ones that you'll see [We bet he did! I did beg to keep them after we'd finished shooting, but the wardrobe people wanted them back. Did Stephen know that you'd played Tess on TV? No, he hadn't a clue, apparently, which was rather funny. Dominic gives a very convincing portrait of a rock star.
So it is unsurprising that Gemma Arterton's latest role is as far from Tinseltown as possible. The former Bond girl is starring in The Master Builder at the Almeida Theatre in London, in a meaty role that sees her stretch her acting chops and appear make-up free. She is best known for her role as the seductive title character in Tamara Drewe, but despite the role making her a household name, the year-old complained recently about being how she is now seen as a sex symbol. Either the character is just someone to be in the background or they're there to help the man, to be the love interest, like I've done in Prince Of Persia or Clash Of The Titans.
You just need to figure out where your girlfriend is. When I see my boyfriend hard at work, it also inspires me to improve and challenge myself in my own way. Well the pieces will all fall into place. The church creates massive guilt and shame in children and adults usually through sex related shaming. She's too heavily invested in Mormonism for that.
