Gemma Arterton Interview – The Girl With All The Gifts – “Frankly, I don’t give a shit how I look”



Today she sits in front of me for more promo in Central London. And while looking particularly stunning in a navy and cream pyjama silk pant suit, boasting cute new bangs, she tells me her bed is the only place she wants to be right now.


Q: Have you exploited your looks?

ARTERTON: Frankly, I don’t give a shit how I look. I don’t want my face or body considered in that way. I’m not a model, that’s not my job so why would it ever be a consideration. You know. I know that’s an idealistic way of looking at Hollywood and there are a lot of people who’d say, you’re talking bollix. But it’s my point of view and it works for me.
