Arterton in one sentence: Gemma is a talented actress and a sophisticated British lady who loves the music and theatre.
I am a vivacious, unpredictable and soulful lady.
Maintain anonymous is important to me.
In the theatre, you’re so free to do whatever you want; there are no repercussions, that is why I prefer theatre.
I’m quite maternal.
I made a decision only to do stuff that I really care about.
I’ve written a diary every day since I was 15.
My goal in my career is to celebrate femininity.
Hard work and grafting are the qualities that I inherited from my parents.
No one gets married to get divorced, that’s just life.
I’m very passionate, impulsive and fickle.
There’s a beauty in something that’s not quite perfect sometimes – the accident of it being a bit raw – there’s a real charm in that.
My favorite Bond girl is Honor Blackman because she is classy and she is British.
I am very thankful that I learned to save money.
I am very competitive.
I can’t live without music.
Gemma loves Shakespeare.
