London (ANI): English actress Gemma Arterton has revealed that she
does not think she was hot enough to be a Bond girl. Arterton, 24,
who acted in Quantum Of Solace, told GQ magazine that she
thought herself to be an “average" girl.
“In comparison to many actresses I think I"m really average -
when I got the Bond film there was this big hoo-ha about me not
being hot enough, I have to say I agree - I don"t think I"m in that
realm," the Mirror quoted her as saying.
The actress explained however that she might have had an
advantage over the actresses. “I think in a way it might have
helped me along - there are some really beautiful actresses like
(Bond co-star) Olga Kurylenko who find it difficult," she said.
“It"s frustrating for her but she"s so beautiful that it"s like
someone having a massive nose: you are going to take that into
consideration when you"re casting her. Whereas I can change my
look: I can look plain or I can be all dolled up," she added.
