The actress likes to take risks

Gemma Arterton admits she’s drawn to powerful men.

The pretty actress, who split from Italian husband Stefano Catelli last year, can understand why shrewd male characters are so popular with film-makers and viewers alike.

‘It’s the control and cool that they have,’ says Gemma, 28.

‘I speak for myself; there’s something sexy about a guy that’s in control.

‘I’m not attracted to the Gordon Gekko character that we like to watch. They’re Machiavellian – they’re fun to play and people enjoy them and watch them.

‘There’s something just wrong; it’s like they’re the devil. But you are captivated by these characters. And I guess that’s why they resonate in the end.’

Gemma always plays it safe with money, though.

‘I am a risk-taker and that’s why I don’t gamble – because I know I would be totally bankrupt,’ the St Trinian’s star tells TV Extra.

‘I like to procrastinate – but I am quite impulsive in other ways. It’s good to be impulsive sometimes. It’s fun.’

The BBC is to boost its coverage of the arts in what its director general calls its “strongest commitment to the arts in a generation. The arts are for everyone, and from now on BBC Arts will be at the very heart of what we do,” said Tony Hall.

Tate director Sir Nicholas Serota and National Theatre director Sir Nicholas Hytner are among leading arts figures appointed to key consultation roles.

Performances from Glyndebourne and Shakespeare’s Globe will also be aired.

iPlayer coverage will include The Duchess of Malfi, the first production at the Globe’s recently opened Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, that saw former Bond girl Gemma Arterton play the title role. (source)

Gemma Arterton will co-host the Olivier Awards ceremony, bringing a touch of movie-star glamour to the London theatre world’s annual big night out.

‘Darling, I’ve never been!’ she admitted, in best mock diva tones, when we spoke about the show. But she is ‘excited and touched’ to have been asked to host the event along with actor Stephen Mangan.

The actress is in the theatrical spotlight at the moment. She started the year in the title role in The Duchess Of Malfi at the new Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at Shakespeare’s Globe, and will finish it by starring in the musical adaptation of the film Made In Dagenham, at the Adelphi Theatre from October.

She has had time to see some of the Olivier-nominated productions, but not all, she admitted. ‘I think I’ll have to wing it on the night,’ she said. ‘I have seen a lot, but I have been away working, and was in the theatre myself.’

Julie Walters will provide pre-recorded voiceovers, but it will just be Arterton and Mangan co-hosting from the stage of the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden on Sunday, April 13.

ITV will broadcast highlights of the ceremony later that night.

Even though director Rupert Goold doesn’t start rehearsals for Made In Dagenham until August, Gemma has completed two workshops of the show, and is having six hours of singing lessons a week.

‘I’m freaking out because it’s the first time I would have done eight shows a week where there’s one hour of pure singing each performance. I need to build up stamina, and I need to get myself in shape,’ she said, of her preparations for her role as a sewing machinist at Ford in Dagenham in 1968, who helped lead female workers in a fight for equal pay.

Talking of equal pay, I hope the Society Of London Theatre is paying Gemma exactly the same as (if not more than) Mr Mangan for the Olivier Awards. (source)

When it’s announced that the girls in the sewing machine room will have their pay grade dropped to ‘unskilled’, Rita leads the women in a charge against the might of the Ford Corporation. Gemma Arterton stars in this inspiring story about the meaning of fairness, friendship and love.

Gemma cut a stylish figure at the Louis Vuitton fashion show in the French capital.

The 28-year-old looked smart and effortlessly chic in a tailored black trouser suit and heels as she posed up with French producer Melita Toscan du Plantier outside the runway show.

Gemma completed her look by adding some colour with a slick of dark red lipstick, and carried a stylish black clutch bag in her hand.

The British actress kept her ensemble incredibly simple by going make-up free, and wore her brunette hair in a gently tousled updo.

Her chic look was in sharp contrast to her casual outfit the night before, as she was seen wearing a maroon knitted scarf, fur-lined black winter coat and green Khaki skinny jeans for a stroll around the capital. Gemma sported minimal make up, wearing only eyeliner, mascara and clear lip gloss for the outing.

Crispness in the Parisian air added to Arterton’s understated look, giving her cheeks a natural rosy glow.

Gemma is enjoying some time off before she begins her run in the lead role of hit musical, Made in Dagenham. (source)
