THE INDEPENDENT – It was Gemma Arterton’s heart-shaped mouth that got Marjane Satrapi, director of The Voices, most excited. “She became fixated with my mouth,” says the 29-year-old star. “It’s a little bit heart-shaped, but she made a big deal out of it. In every scene I had to wear red lipstick.”

The lips are especially important as, for much of the black comedy, the only part of Arterton that we see is her decapitated head in a fridge. She’s been killed by a schizophrenic toilet factory worker, played by Ryan Reynolds, who despite lusting after her, chops off her head under the instruction of his Scottish cat. When he starts dating a fellow worker, played by Anna Kendrick, he also gets advice from Arterton’s talking head in the fridge, as well as the psychotic cat, and his loveable dog.

The British actress was offered the choice of playing either leading lady when she first chatted to Satrapi on Skype. She went for the less obvious of the two roles: “I just wanted to do something non-connected to what I had been doing before, which was focused on the body and beauty. Anna’s part is more deep and profound; I just wanted to be a bit silly.”

It’s this desire not to be pigeonholed that has led Arterton to turn her back on Hollywood. The Kent-born star had barely got her feet wet as an actress when she got the call from Bond producer Barbara Broccoli saying she had won the role of Strawberry Fields in Quantum of Solace. Most actors would have been doing cartwheels. “Just last night I was thinking about the moment that I found out I was going to be in a Bond film,” says Arterton. ” I wasn’t happy about it. It wasn’t like: ‘Oh my God, I’m going to be working with these people and it’s a dream come true.’ It’s like ‘Oh, cool’, and it was a great experience and fun to go all those places, but the work wasn’t so interesting.” She had a handful of scenes, wore beautiful clothes and died.

FILM NEWS.co.uk – Gemma Arterton feels like a better actress now she’s “flexed her muscles” on the stage.

The 29-year-old actress has been appearing in a production of Made in Dagenham in London, UK, about women who went on strike in the 60s because they wanted equal pay.

Gemma has also appeared in big budget flicks like James Bond movie Quantum of Solace and thinks her skills are only getting better as she diversifies.

“I think that doing theatre does [make you a better actress] because you’re constantly flexing those muscles in front of a live audience every night and you have to adapt and you have to be on the ball all the time. I definitely think doing theatre makes you a better actor, but there are loads of actors who never do theatre… and they’re not good,” she joked on BBC Radio 1.

Her time on stage will be coming to a close before long and then Gemma will go back to shooting films. Although she’s a film pro it’s still a daunting process as she’s now so used to working at a completely different pace.

“I’ve been doing theatre for so long now and I’m doing a film pretty much straight afterwards and it’s going to be so weird for me. Obviously you’re filming all day and sometimes two scenes a day whereas I’m used to doing a whole part in two hours. It’s different,” she explained.

Having starred in the Bond franchise and other major movies like Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Gemma is now going in a new direction. That involves parts in indie films with smaller budgets, and she is proud to have made that transition.

“I have to say at the moment I’m feeling what I’m doing now which is more like interesting roles in smaller things. Even though doing those big old things, they’re fun for the experience, but I’m enjoying what I’m doing now, it’s much more gratifying,” she said. (source)
