She may play a gun toting tomboy in her latest movie, but Gemma Arterton looked like a perfect lady on Friday morning.

The British actress graced the Daybreak sofa and was a huge ray of light in her bright striped dress.

The 27-year-old wore a white dress with blue horizontal stripes on it by CH Carolina Herrera as she chatted to host Kate Garraway about her new movie. While Gemma was dressed to impress for her early morning appearance her smile complimented her ensemble beautifully.

The star wore her hair down with a side parting as she described her new film alongside co-star Jeremy Renner. The good looking pairing play brother and sister in Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.

She said: ‘Jeremy was the consummate professional and has done all of this stuff before but that was the challenge for me was to become bad and brave and learn how to fight and to do all my stunts. Theres always an element of you could get really hurt but a lot of it is fear’.

Gemma’s character is well known from the children’s tale but she warned Kate that the movie definitely is not one for children.

After fighting monsters and demons on screen she admitted that in real life she finds domestic crime the most frightening thing.

‘Things like we had theses riots in London last year, I just think how society is so fragile. I think that’s very scary, and there are many things that scare me but that one in particular.’

Hansel and Gretel was published by the famous German siblings in 1812; but Grimm tales lost favour after the end of the second world war after some academics posited that the often bloody tales had been a catalyst for the acceptance of Nazism.

However, this view has since been questioned and there’s a push in Wilhelm and Jacob’s homeland to resurrect the stories – popular with Disney and the rest of the world – in German households.
