Renowned Hollywood actress Gemma Arterton states that she heeds no importance on the way she looks. She says, looks are not an important aspect to her and she has never tried to portray it as a quality, unlike others in the industry.
The 30-year-old actress has so far worked in a diverse arena of arts starting from the stage theaters to Hollywood movies. But the actress never felt that she should pay importance to her looks or body.
Gemma Arterton has been nominated for the prestigious 'Laurence Olivier Award' in Best Actress category for her leading role in the stage drama, Nell Gwynn earlier this year. However, the actress says the importance of looks significantly varies across both the platforms,compared to the screens.
"Look, I trained for six years, I started out in the theater where, if you're good for the role, you get the part. I don't think I ever heard of anyone being hired because of their looks, which is very different from the movie industry," Gemma said in a statement.
"Some producers and directors care, some don't. And I now choose to work with those who don't. Frankly, I don't care how I look. I don't want my face or body considered in that way" Gemma added further.
