Gemma Arterton has joked she is “bit of a klept” as she can’t help stealing strange objects.
The actress has a habit of taking things from hotel rooms. Gemma confessed being light-fingered on the set of her movies too, with her best memento a prosthetic feature she sported on her face for a role.
“My nose! My nose from Tamara Drewe. I actually have it framed, in my downstairs loo,” Gemma joked to Empire magazine.
“Well, you know, I’m a bit of a klept actually… I stole a teapot [from a hotel]. It was a silver one, a proper nice one. I also stole a tea strainer to go with it – I’ve got the whole set. The teapot’s in my house, I use it often. Right now, it’s about three metres from my fake nose.”
The feisty British star has appeared in a string of action movies such as fantasy Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters and Bond film Quantum of Solace in 2008. The 27-year-old is a tough girl in real life too.
“I don’t know if I’d have punched him, but I might have given him a little slap,” she laughed when asked if she’s ever been tempted to hit a director. “And I’m so not going to tell you who, but there have been moments of angst between a certain director and me for sure. [The one film I’ve seen more than others is] Home Alone, because I have a thing for physical violence – also because it’s a brilliant film.”
