London, Feb 16 (PTI) Bond girl Gemma Arterton who faced media criticism after being clicked with a double chin, has shot back at her detractors saying that she will never lose weight to fit in with the skinny brigade.

The 23-year-old actress took a swipe at her critics saying, “I refuse to conform to this sinewy look that so many actresses seem to think is attractive.I hate it and I don’t think it’s very feminine. I dress like a woman and I wear a lot of couture because it’s made for real women with curves.” Daily Mail reported.

The British actress admitted that she was hurt by the nasty comments she received for the photo, while adding that it did not prompt her to lose weight.

“I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t hurt by what people were saying about the picture. It was just a bad photo taken from the wrong angle. I’m a size ten, which I don’t think is big.” she added.
