Gemma Arterton has denied that girls will be jealous of her role in the next Bond film – because her character is a geek.

The 22-year-old said: “My Bond girl’s not really a Bond villain. She’s not glamorous or anything – she’s quite geeky. So I don’t know… it’s amazing what a haircut will do!”

“I just went to work every day, and if I thought about it too much I’d freak out! But it was absolutely brilliant.”

Gemma, wearing a figure-hugging dress on the red carpet of her latest film Three And Out, denied she had gone on a fitness regime for the film, called Quantum Of Solace.

“I actually put loads of weight on. Well, not loads of weight – but some weight when I was trying to lose it so I could be all toned. But that’s not my character – she’s not really that sort of Bond girl.”

The St Trinian’s star also said she had been overwhelmed by her rapid rise to fame over the last year.

“It’s been insane,” she said. “I can’t really explain it. It’s been actually out of this world and brilliant and scary and exciting.”

The actress added she decided to do Three And Out because she “really liked the script” and “wanted to work with the cast”.
