Gemma Arterton thinks Justin Timberlake is perfect.

The Bond Girl has become a big fan of the ‘Suit and Tie‘ hitmaker after working with the singer in the new film ‘Runner‘, and he particularly loves how good he is at playing golf.

Speaking on Radio 2, Gemma said: ”He is the loveliest guy in the world, one of those guys that’s annoyingly good at everything he does.

”He’s incredible at golf, he plays with Tigers Woods and people like that. He’s incredible at dancing, obviously an incredible singer and musician and really really good as an actor and a lovely guy.”

The 27-year-old beauty has just finished filming fantasy thriller movie ‘Byzantium‘ – in which sees portrays a vampire – but she warned the film is much ”lower key” than similar motion pictures such as ‘The Twilight Saga‘ franchise.

She explained: ”It’s an art house horror. Its definitely lower key than your blockbusters like Twilight and it’s got much more of a beating heart and visually it’s beautifully shot. It’s heavier, more adult.”

Gemma Arterton says she found killing people on-screen a challenge.

The Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters actress, who portrays ruthless vampire Clara in Byzantium, admitted the blood-sucking scenes take quite a bit of work to get right.

“It’s quite hard doing stuff like that technically, because there’s a lot of rigs you have to set up with pumps and blood,” she said.

“The timing has to be right, it’s very messy and sometimes you’re not quite in the flow with it because you have to reset and all of those things. But when you get it right, you feel like ‘yes’ (a sense of achievement).”

Gemma – who stars alongside Saoirse Ronan as her screen daughter Eleanor – revealed murdering Tom Hollander’s character was satisfying.

“Killing Tom Hollander was particularly fun. I think he could tell. He said, ‘I think you’re enjoying this too much’ and I said, ‘Yeah. I don’t want it to end. It’s brilliant’,” she said.

“I had this rig going all the way up my arm through my finger and into my thumb so when I stabbed him and pulled out, all the blood would spray out. But it worked perfectly and afterwards, we were very pleased.”

The 27-year-old also said she enjoys concocting ways for her victims to meet their end.

“On the page, it just says, ‘and she kills him’. You don’t know how, so that’s where I got really creative… and we worked on techniques and what I could do. That was fun,” she added.

Fans have already been treated to a sneak peek of her raunchy new image in upcoming movie Byzantium. And it seems Gemma Arterton‘s sexier image is spilling into her every day life, too.

The former Bond girl, who plays a bloodsucking vampire prostitute in the thriller, stepped out on Tuesday night for the London screening of Byzantium.

And she ensured she stayed in theme as she stunned in a skintight black leather dress. She successfully ensured all eyes were on her as she turned up to the special screening.

The 27-year-old even went vampish with her shoes in a pair of pointy black heels, while she carried a clutch bag in her hand. Gemma opted for smokey eyes to co-ordinate with the look and even wore crucifix-esque earrings to the event. The actress completed her look with her dark locks tied into a simple up ‘do.

She seemed in a jovial mood as she grinned widely for the cameras and joined her co-star Daniel Mays at the bash.

It was a busy day for Gemma, who had earlier shown off her impressive figure once more but this time in an angelic white number as she headed to the ITV studios.
