Gemma Arterton has vowed to continue making low budget films despite her roles in blockbusters like Clash of the Titans and James Bond.

Arterton, who stars in kidnap thriller The Disappearance of Alice Creed, said it was “refreshing” to make “no frills” films” after being in Hollywood.

“These are the sort of movies I am proud of and I will continue to make films like this,” she said.

Alice Creed, which was shot on the Isle of Man, is out in the UK on 30 April.

The 24-year-old actress will be seen next month alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in action fantasy Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

Nude scenes

“I’ve been very lucky in what I’ve been offered, and didn’t know I’d get Prince of Persia and that kind of movie,” Arterton told the BBC.

She said that while she enjoyed making blockbuster movies it was “important” to keep on making films like Alice Creed.

“This is the sort of movie I always imagined I’d end up doing,” she said. “This is the sort of movie I’d go to see in the cinema.”

She added: “It’s basic, there’s no frills with this sort of thing – it’s refreshing for you when you’re involved in the Hollywood machine.”

In Alice Creed, Arterton plays a millionaire’s daughter who is kidnapped and kept bound and gagged in an abandoned apartment.

Arterton said she was comfortable doing the nude scenes that feature in Alice Creed.

“I’ve not got a problem with nudity in films if it’s absolutely appropriate – and it was completely appropriate in this film. I just got on with it and treated it like any other part.”

Arterton said she was now thinking about her next project.

“I don’t know what I’m going to do next. I’ve got a few months off – I’m getting married – but now I’m being more selective with what I’m going to do.”

Arterton recently completed filming on Stephen Frears’ Tamara Drewe film.

Based on Posy Simmonds’ comic strip, Tamara Drewe will be unveiled at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
