Movie starlets, those delicate, orchid-like creatures, tend to be interviewed in five-star London hotel suites controlled by luxury air conditioning and hovering publicists.

Today, though, I find Gemma Arterton sat on set in rainy Newcastle, inside a battered trailer in a community centre car park and she seems right at home. ‘I grew up on a council estate,’ she says cheerily, ‘and this community centre is so sweet – like the one I used to go to for Brownies.’

Given her cut-glass accent and the fact that her on film debut was as the head girl in St Trinian’s, I tell Arterton I’d expected her roots to be, well, posher. ‘Are you joking?’ she cackles. ‘I grew up in Kent with an Estuary accent so strong it was almost Cockney. I was all like “wot the f*** are you lookin’ at?” until I went to “drrrrramah” school, where they told me that it wouldn’t do me any favours and they teach you RP [received pronunciation] instead.

‘I remember going to my dad’s house for Sunday roast and I said something like: ‘May you pass the ketchup?’ and he went: ‘F*** off, I’m not passing you nuffing when you speak like that. What are you, Mary Poppins, or somefing?’ Read More

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters actress Gemma Arterton has decided to “shun” big commercial films as starring in them makes her feel “uneasy”.

The 27-year-old actress has starred in numerous blockbuster films, such as Clash of the Titans and James Bond flick Quantum of Solace, but recently made the choice to turn down commercial features as she finds herself feeling “uneasy” taking part in them.

Gemma explained: “I’ve decided to shun the ‘big’ side for a bit. Over Christmas, I turned down this huge, very commercial film – I can’t tell you which but it’s one of those feel-good family films you know is going to be a massive smash but I felt this unease about doing it.

“I think I’m … I’m … it’s delicate in that it’s this bizarre line where you have to be a bit of a ‘name’ to get the financing for the smaller films but if you don’t have the respect and credentials as an actor, you probably won’t get asked to do the really covetable roles.”

Instead, Gemma wants to be involved in more “unusual” projects and realises she must stand her ground in order to prove she doesn’t need mainstream roles to make her a successful actress.

She continued: “I want to work with good directors and so really unusual things. You can’t sit on the fence in this job. You have to be strong.”

Gemma can next be seen in action flick Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters alongside Jeremy Renner, out in cinemas on February 27.

Hansel And Gretel actress Gemma Arterton has revealed that some of the combat training she underwent for the role paid off when she punched a homeless man in the face for squeezing her bottom.

The star said she ran off after she realised what she had done, saying: “I actually felt quite bad about it.”

Arterton, 27, spoke about the incident during an interview for this week’s Graham Norton show which is to be screened tonight on BBC1.

She said: “I was in one of those ATM cash machine rooms and there was a tramp in there. He kept looking at me and then he grabbed my bum really hard.

“I turned round and properly punched him in the face. I then realised I’d punched a tramp in the face so I ran. Thank God he didn’t punch me back. Read More
