Joan Collins believes ‘Tamara Drewe‘ actress Gemma Arterton would be the perfect person to star as Alexis Carrington in a ‘Dynasty‘ movie.

Joan Collins wants Gemma Arterton and Chris Pine to star in a film version of ‘Dynasty‘.

The British legend – who starred as catty character Alexis Carrington in the original TV series in the 1980s – is unlikely to make a return as plans are to set the film in the 1960s, but hopes ‘Tamara Drewe‘ star Gemma would take on the role.

She said: “Gemma has all the qualities that Alexis needs. She’s sexy. She looks clever and she’s kind of vixenous.” Read More

Gemma Arterton sure looks good in denim!

The British Clash of the Titans star has been named the face of G-Star’s spring/summer 2011 global advertising campaign — and UsMagazine.com has your first look at Arterton’s sexy shots.

“I’ve always loved the G-Star campaigns and am really, really thrilled to work with the brand,” the actress tells Us in a statement. “The brand is ultra-modern, cool and quite unusual. It’s very different to any jean brand. It’s very edgy, raw and fresh.”

Shot by photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbijn, Arterton says she loved the rock ‘n’ roll vibe of the shoot.

“If I wasn’t an actress I’d probably be an opera singer or a rock star,” she tells Us. “I’ve always said I’m a rock star trapped inside an actress’s body.”

So what made the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time actress decide to partner up with the iconic clothing brand?

“G-Star came to me and approached me about working with them. I’ve always loved the brand’s edgy and raw character and the unique, strong campaigns that Anton shot,” Arterton explains. “G-Star women are portrayed as self-confident and strong but always feminine and elegant. This matches how I am and how I like to be perceived and made me very positive about working with them.”

The former Bond girl — who said wed Italian fashion manager Stefano Catelli last June — tells Us that modeling the brand’s latest fashions has been a dream come true.

“Besides the fact I like G-Star’s raw, refreshing and edgy style, for me it’s essential that what G-Star values — being authentic, self-confident and independent — are things I value myself very much as well,” she explains. “I would never collaborate with a brand that has no match with my own personality or I don’t get excited about.”

Gemma Arterton has said that her BAFTA ‘Rising Star’ nod shows that she is being taken seriously as an actress.

The Tamara Drewe star is competing for the gong with other nominees Andrew Garfield, Tom Hardy, Aaron Johnson and Emma Stone.

Arterton told Metro: “It’s just nice to been taken seriously… [and] not seen as just a sex symbol.

“This award is great because it’s not about one particular role, it’s about a body of work. I am proud that is being recognised.”

She added: “I am really excited. I am quite amazed actually. I can’t really believe it. I’m an old timer.

“I suppose for the rising star award you need a little bit of work behind you for them to celebrate – so people of note will know you. Last year I had four movies out but I have been around for three years.”
