Gemma Arterton looked more Bond girl than country girl when she strolled in for the Tamara Drewe screening in New York City last night.

Gone were the cut-off jeans that have adorned her latest film’s posters and instead the actress stunned in a floor length strapless black gown.

The 24-year-old was joined by her co-stars Dominic Cooper, Luke Evans, Bill Camp and director Stephen Frears at the Crosby Street Hotel for The Cinema Society and Altoids screening.

Arterton stars as the film’s heroine Tamara Drewe, which sees the successful London journalist return to her small hometown village after her mother’s death.

The British film caught headlines after Arterton’s photographs in tiny denim hotpants were used to draw in audiences.

And her on screen beauty ruffles a few feathers in the countryside too, leading her character to embark on an affair with Mamma Mia! heartthrob Dominic Cooper.

The film might not have been given a full star rating by reviewers but has been dubbed a lighthearted comedy which also managed to show a different side to Arterton’s acting repertoire after Quantum of Solace and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

And the British actress looked every inch the Hollywood star last night with smokey eyes accompanying her English rose complexion.

Despite her latest hotpant-clad role in Tamara Drewe, Arterton recently told GQ magazine that she doesn’t want to be seen as a ‘piece of a** by Hollywood.’

She said: ‘I’ve nearly walked off very big films before, and I would, because I don’t want that in my life. I want to enjoy the work I do.

‘I’m looking at working with people I get on with, that respect me, that don’t just see me as a piece of a**.’
