Gemma Arterton says she will always feel like an outsider when it comes to fashion — and although as an actor she feels under pressure to look good, “you can’t live your life worrying about stuff like that”.

The actress, who has most recently starred in Made In Dagenham in the West End, told the Standard: “I like dressing myself in nice clothes and expressing myself through my clothes. But when I’m at fashionable events I always feel like an outsider — there are people that live for fashion and people that love fashion. I’m in the latter camp. Obviously as actors we are watched and you have to look presentable. You’re always under pressure.”

Arterton, who was speaking as she launched the British Designers’ Collective at Bicester Village, added: “But I don’t think you can live your life worrying about stuff like that. I’m under the persuasion that you should just wear what you want to wear and someone will always have an opinion. Whether it’s too conservative or too risqué, or whatever. We live in a culture these days where everything is under scrutiny and everything is criticised.

You can get yourself so worked up with it. I’ve had that where I’ve gone out in something and it’s been slated — but it’s fine. I’d rather them slate my dress than slate my work. I think as I’ve got older, it’s become secondary to what I actually do.”

Arterton, 29, made her film debut in St Trinian’s in 2007 and went on to star in Bond film Quantum Of Solace. Made In Dagenham closed last month and she is now back to shooting films.

She said: “I’ve never been so busy. I’m shooting two movies at the same time. I had a little bit of time off after the show to get my head together, get my evenings back and drink some Prosecco and eat some cheese. But I’m so proud of it. Not just doing the show but what it represented. I’m glad I did it.”
