Screen goddess Gemma Arterton shows off her classical good looks — on a break from filming Greek epic Clash Of The Titans.

The ex-Bond girl, 23, looked heavenly as she stripped down to a skimpy bikini. She was lounging by a hotel pool in the Canary Islands on a day off from the movie — a remake of the 1981 classic.

An onlooker said: “Gemma’s bikini didn’t seem to be giving her a lot of support.”

Luckily, she managed to avoid a Greek tragedy.

Arterton, Westwick join Ecosse project

Gemma Arterton and Ed Westwick will play Cathy and Heathcliff in Ecosse Films’ adaptation of Emily Bronte’s “Wuthering Heights.”

Project has also seen a number of cast changes. Natalie Portman was originally tapped to play the role of Cathy. Scheduling conflicts saw her exit the project before being replaced by Abbie Cornish. Arterton will now play the iconic romantic role after producers opted to go younger with the pic.
