DAILY MAIL – To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the prestigious Olivier Awards next week, we went backstage to catch theatreland’s leading ladies in these intimate images before curtain up

‘Everyone is so respectful of everyone else. It’s all of us together, and I have never been involved in a company like that. There’s this real energy. Last night I looked around when we were singing “Stand Up” and everyone was clapping – I got a bit emotional.’ (source)

London Burning Photoshoot

LONDON BURNING – “I grew up on a council estate, and when you grow up somewhere like that, it’s hard to shake it off. Even when you’re placed in über-glamorous circumstances, you can’t quite fit in. I’m so grateful to have come from that, because I can see the disparities between the two! Well, to me the glamorous side is not real at all. I enjoy going to film festivals, I enjoy going out for nice dinners and living the nouveau-riche life, because that’s what I am, nouveau-riche. Yet it’s not where I feel comfortable. I guess that’s why I live in south London still. Even though I live in a nice place, I still can be five minutes down the road and I’m in Brixton or wherever. I don’t think I could ever live anywhere that was manicured because I’d find it very uncomfortable…

How weird is this: [my first job was in] the Warner Bros shop! And then I ended up working on Warner Bros films. I made my first film when I was 22… I remember one day I was serving a guy in the shop that was James Bond’s stunt double, and he was boasting to everyone. And then, five years on, you’re working on the same thing. It’s weird. Life is full of things like that.“

EMPIRE UK – In an unfortunately mildly unexciting week for movies, we have two very exciting guests talking about two movies out next week, namely Jim Parsons for Dreamworks animation Home and Gemma Arterton for serial killer comedy The Voices. The early ’00s dramedy Ed comes up, for some reason. You’ll see. Or hear, rather.

Elsewhere, the team talk all-female reboots, the new all-male Ghostbusters film, all that Star Wars / Disney / Frozen 2 news and try to come to terms with a world without Sir Terry Pratchett.

THE INDEPENDENT – It was Gemma Arterton’s heart-shaped mouth that got Marjane Satrapi, director of The Voices, most excited. “She became fixated with my mouth,” says the 29-year-old star. “It’s a little bit heart-shaped, but she made a big deal out of it. In every scene I had to wear red lipstick.”

The lips are especially important as, for much of the black comedy, the only part of Arterton that we see is her decapitated head in a fridge. She’s been killed by a schizophrenic toilet factory worker, played by Ryan Reynolds, who despite lusting after her, chops off her head under the instruction of his Scottish cat. When he starts dating a fellow worker, played by Anna Kendrick, he also gets advice from Arterton’s talking head in the fridge, as well as the psychotic cat, and his loveable dog.

The British actress was offered the choice of playing either leading lady when she first chatted to Satrapi on Skype. She went for the less obvious of the two roles: “I just wanted to do something non-connected to what I had been doing before, which was focused on the body and beauty. Anna’s part is more deep and profound; I just wanted to be a bit silly.”

It’s this desire not to be pigeonholed that has led Arterton to turn her back on Hollywood. The Kent-born star had barely got her feet wet as an actress when she got the call from Bond producer Barbara Broccoli saying she had won the role of Strawberry Fields in Quantum of Solace. Most actors would have been doing cartwheels. “Just last night I was thinking about the moment that I found out I was going to be in a Bond film,” says Arterton. ” I wasn’t happy about it. It wasn’t like: ‘Oh my God, I’m going to be working with these people and it’s a dream come true.’ It’s like ‘Oh, cool’, and it was a great experience and fun to go all those places, but the work wasn’t so interesting.” She had a handful of scenes, wore beautiful clothes and died.
