The film’s stars were surrounded by ancient Greek style columns and statues as they made their way up the red carpet for the world premiere of the 3D action epic at the Empire cinema in Leicester Square, London.

Arterton, wearing a figure-hugging, knee-length black dress with bare legs and towering heels, had her hair swept up as she showed off her new tattoo, a tribal design behind her ear.

She said: ”We all got grazes rolling around in fight scenes which we called clash rash.

”There’s make-up on my legs to get rid of the clash rash. They’ve recovered, it was a few months ago now.”

The film, directed by Louis Leterrier and starring Liam Neeson as Zeus, Ralph Fiennes as Hades, ruler of the underworld, and Sam Worthington as Perseus, the hero, requires many of the men to wear skirts.

Nicholas Hoult, who also stars in the film, joked on the red carpet: ”It was very difficult being a serious actor going to work and wearing a skirt and having to fight giant scorpions. No, it was brilliant!

”We all got a bit of clash rash from running around and skidding, and we all had competitions of who had the best clash rash.”

Arterton, who plays Perseus’s spirit guide Io, revealed: ”My skirt was actually longer than the boys’, but it had quite a big slit up the side, so there were a few knicker flashes. We had someone on knicker watch.”

Worthington said of wearing a skirt: ”I didn’t mind it, I tried to get mine shorter. But when you’ve got Christmas hams like mine and ricotta thighs, the boys kept saying: ‘Bring it down, no one wants to see that’.”
