Gemma Arterton missed out on London Fashion Week this season (bar a front row appearance at Mulberry on Sunday) – something she’s not too happy about.

“I didn’t really get to ‘do’ Fashion Week this year,” she tells us. “I’m going to Berlin for three months to shoot Hansel And Gretel this week. It’s a shame because I love going to fashion shows, I really enjoy that type of event. You know, lots of people in one room, bright lights and loud music. I love that kind of stuff.”

The former Bond girl admits finding that perfect red carpet-worthy dress isn’t one of her favourite pursuits.

“I’m really into fashion in my everyday life so that’s another reason I enjoy fashion week,” she explains. “Red carpet dressing is different, because it is all about that one pretty dress and it’s often not very inventive. I have always wanted to wear a suit on the red carpet, but so far people have always talked me out of it. It’s the politics of red carpet dressing! But one day I will. I just want to be comfortable, that’s the most important thing to me.”

The actress reveals, however, that she doesn’t get nervous about her daily fashion choices.

“I can get a bit nervous about what people will say about my outfit when it’s a really big event, but under normal circumstances I don’t really care,” she says. “In my personal life I love experimenting with fashion, but I have luckily managed to separate my everyday life from my job, so I don’t get scrutinised about what I’m wearing on a daily basis.”

Gemma Arterton is concerned about being homesick as she prepares to head off to Germany for her new film.

The Prince Of Persia star will be shooting Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters in Berlin, where she plays the titular female character, alongside Jeremy Renner as her on-screen sibling, and she predicts she may miss home comforts.

“I’m going to be there for three months, so I’m worried I’ll get homesick – this will be the first time I’m away from home for a long time,” she told the Evening Standard.

However, she’s not fussed about fitting into German life, despite not being fluent in the language.

“I don’t speak German but I get the gist of what they’re saying. It was always my favourite language in school,” she added.

In the modern-day comedy-action adaptation of the Brothers Grimm’s fairytale, set for release in 2012, the siblings have turned into bounty hunters who hunt down witches.

Another witch has joined the growing cinematic coven of Tommy Wirkola’s upcoming flick Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, and we’ve got the scoop on who’ll be casting her spell next!

According to Bloody Disgusting Ingrid Bolsø Berdal (Cold Prey franchise) has been cast as one of the witches in Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters 3D. According to BD her witch will be a “super bad hardcore killing machine.” We like.

She joins previously announced Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, and Famke Janssen in the fairytale retelling by the director of Dead Snow. The storyline for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters picks up the fairy tale siblings 15 years after their traumatic gingerbread house incident, which provoked them to become witch bounty hunters.

Look for the flick in theatres on March 2nd, 2012.

For Gemma Arterton (on her best behavior, as she had to get up early to start filming Hansel and Gretel opposite Jeremy Renner), it was a family affair: “My husband is here, and I brought my mom to the show. It was her first ever, and she thought the sparkly jacket was rather bling. I, for one, loved the high-waisted culottes. I know, I know, high waists, but they actually suit my body.” To which we asked the Bond girl, what wouldn’t suit that body?

MGM has decided to co-finance Paramount’s Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, which will now be shot in 3D. The $60 million movie also has a release date: March 2, 2012.

MGM toppers Roger Birnbaum and Gary Barber have a close working relationship with Paramount through their Spyglass banner, and have co-financed a number of Paramount films, including Star Trek.

Gemma Arterton looked picture perfect in a black strapless YSL gown at 2011 Orange British Academy Film Awards at The Royal Opera House, London on February 13.

The 25-year-old Prince of Persia star braved the cold and wet night in her trailing dress that was adorned with an oversized blue bow on waist.

She accessorized with black peep-toe heels, a sparkling black pocketbook handbag and a cocktail ring on her left hand.

Her long wavy brown hair, styled with a middle parting, framed her face. Bold red lipstick accentuated her regal look for the evening.

Gemma was a nominee for BAFTA Rising Star award along with Andrew Garfied, Tom Hardy, Aaron Johnson and Emma Stone. The Award went to the Inception star Tom Hardy.

The ex-Bond girl is currently filming for Barry Sonnenfeld’s Men in Black III. The film is scheduled for a May 25, 2012 release.

Gemma Arterton, nominated for the Bafta Rising Star award, has shed a stone thanks to gruelling daily sessions of Bikram yoga.

The 25-year-old ex-Bond girl has been doing the sauna-style yoga in 104F (40C) heat.

A pal said: ‘Gemma is incredibly flexible and has somehow managed to whittle down her waist and thighs while retaining her curves.

‘She’s been agonising over what to wear for the Baftas. She’s only a size eight, but in Hollywood terms that’s big and she can’t fit into a sample size six.’

Kent-born Gemma, who married fashionista Stefano Catelli, 37, last June, refuses to diet.

She said last year: ‘The only way I could ever be a size six is if I didn’t eat. I’m not naturally meant to be that size.’
