Gemma Arterton loves “food and drinking too much”.

The British actress – who faced a barrage of criticism after being photographed with a double chin recently – has hit back at claims she is fat, insisting she is just a normal girl.

She said: “My mum was really upset – more than me to be honest. I’m now a size ten. I know I’ve put on a bit of weight – but I’m not worried about it.

“It’s not like it freaked me out and made me want to starve myself – I love food and drinking too much! I think I look normal.”

Gemma is happy to exercise in order to keep in shape, but has no intention of cutting back on her favourite foods.

The 23-year-old beauty added: “I work out regularly, but I am not going to deprive myself. I’m happy with how I look now.”

Gemma can next be seen in ‘The Boat That Rocked’ – which also stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rhys Ifans and Bill Nighy.

The British comedy will be released in cinemas from April.
