One day before Runner Runner came out on DVD and on Blu-ray in the UK, Gemma Arterton gave an interview to TV Extra Magazine about the film, gambling and what attracts her to a man.
Are you similar to Rebecca at all?
“I don’t believe in bringing the character to me. I definitely have to change my way of thinking — because, you know, there were definite things about Rebecca that are very, very much like me. But then the business side of her is not like me. There are two sides of her. There’s this sort of charming sensitive, almost romantic, side and then there’s the masculine side, the business side. The biggest difference is that Rebecca actually doesn’t mind if she upsets somebody. She will happily upset them in order to get the right outcome. Whereas, for me, I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night. I’ve had to make myself very, very confident within the role and project an air of untouchability as well. So I’ve had to do that on set. And that has been quite interesting to play because people are like, “We want to talk to her but we don’t; we don’t want to go up to her”. It’s just been quite funny. You do have to question yourself and I usually just play on set and don’t go home with those thoughts. That would be a bit strange.”
Are we in for a good time with this movie then?
“I hope so. This film will make you think about why you do what you do and how much we desire material things and what we sacrifice for them and maybe what we don’t; it’s about what wins in the end.”

Better late than never. I recently acquired this issue of Stylist featuring our very own Gemma and scanned it exclusively for Gemma-Arterton.net. Enjoy! :)

The splendorous Kent-born beauty is gracing the pages of the February 2014 issue of InStyle Spain with an editorial that first appeared in InStyle (USA) – October 2013. The photos and the text are exactly the same, but this time I guess it’ll be easier for our hispanohablantes visitors to understand the article. :)

Nearly 17 years ago, Brian Koppelman and David Levien huddled in their New York City office and put together the script for the movie that changed poker history forever. “Rounders” wasn’t anywhere close to being a box office smash, and the pre-boom poker world feared the movie would have a lasting negative impact on the game itself, but time proved all of that wrong.
Runner Runner premieres in New Zealand on October 17th.
