The twice Bafta nominated British actress was the star attraction as she opened London’s ‘world-famous’ Harrods sale this morning.

Wearing a shimmering black and silver seqinned short dress by Balmain, (was £6,500, now £3,250) and black suede peeptoe-booties, (were £1,100, now £550), the former Quantum of Solace Bond girl, looked dazzling.

Flanked by old and new, actress Arterton, stood beside guest of honour Mohamed Al-Fayed, the former chairman of Harrods and, a representative of the present owners, Dr. Kamal Maamria, Executive Director and Head of General Investment Portfolio of Qatar Holding and Harrods Board Member.

As shoppers were gearing themselves up for a trolly-dash, Arterton, 25, began the famous countdown. Before long, the sales queue for the Gucci department stretched right around the front of the store on Knightsbridge which boasts more than 330 departments over seven floors.

Arterton, who shops in Harrods often, said: “I do go to the sales, but I don’t join the queues on the first day, so I probably miss out. But after this press-call I will be heading straight to the Chloé and Givenchy concessions, as they are the two designers I love.” Read More

Will Ferrell briefly mentions producing Hansel and Gretel in his recent interview with Collider.com.

I looked on the “always accurate” IMDB and you are listed as a producer on Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters and Bouncers along with some other stuff. How involved are you as the producer and is this a new thing for you where you will start producing movies that you are not in or is it always going to be stuff that you are in?

Will Ferrell: No. That is kind of Adam [McKay} and I’s company [Gary Sanchez]. We are looking stuff for ourselves but are also excited to be making movies that we are not in. That is he is not directing and that I am not acting in. Hansel and Gretel is a big movie that is shooting right now in Germany with Jeremy Renner. It’s a great twist on the whole fable of Hansel and Gretel.

Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner on the set of “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters”, a 3D animated comedy-action movie based on the famous fairytale ‘Hansel & Gretel’ from Brothers Grimm, in Braunschweig, Germany, on Wednesday, March 31st, 2011.

If you were expecting a kiddie tale being remade for 2011 you are wrong. This tale catches up with Hansel and Gretel 15 years after their incident involving a gingerbread house. The brother and sister duo are now all grown up and have evolved into bounty hunters who hunt witches.

The film also stars Peter Stormare, Famke Janssen and Ingrid Bolsø Berdal.

Are you guys loving this new spin of the old fairytale?

Gemma Arterton has said that she is “happy” to be Joan Collins’s choice to portray Alexis Carrington Colby in the Dynasty remake.

Collins suggested that the Tamara Drewe actress has the “sexy and vixenous” qualities to take on the role she originated in the 1980s TV show.

Asked if she thought Collins’s recommendation was a compliment, Arterton told Orange: “Absolutely! I mean, she said I look clever as well, which I thought was very nice of her to say. But mainly I was just very happy that Joan Collins knew I existed! She’s such a diva and such an icon.”

The 25-year-old added: “It’s funny because my mum loved Dynasty, so when she found out that Joan Collins had said that she was more excited than she’s ever been about any job prospect, even though I’ve never been approached. It’s just her saying it. So, it’s quite funny really… quite fabulous in a camp way.”

Arterton revealed that she is about to start work on “a very, very dark” version of Hansel And Gretel opposite The Town‘s Jeremy Renner.

“It’s when they’re 15 years older,” she commented. “I’m really excited about it because it’s quite a big role for me and quite a departure from anything I’ve done before, so watch this space!”
