Bond girl Gemma Arterton boasts a slender figure, but is still made to feel fat by fashionistas.

The Quantum Of Solace actress, 24 — who was told what not to eat by the makers of her latest film, Disney epic Prince Of Persia, after she was pictured with a double chin — says she was insulted by a designer who questioned whether she would fit into a size-six dress.

Says Gemma: ‘It is ridiculous. I went to a designer the other day — who will remain nameless — and he said to me: “I’m amazed that you’re fitting into these sample sizes.”’

She then told the designer: ‘I’m a size eight to ten! I should be amazed that the largest you’re making these is a size six.’

However, she admits: ‘Occasionally, I come home and say to my fiance [stunt driver Stefano Mioni]: “I feel really fat.”

‘He says: “Will you just listen to ­yourself? You know you’re being silly.” And I do know that when I’m home, but in the business it’s different.’

She adds: ‘The only way that I could ever be a size six is if I didn’t eat. I’m not naturally meant to be that size, and I just feel like there’s a responsibility to people who aren’t that size to make that known.

‘All I can do, I think, is try to look good. I have things made for me so they fit.’
