Gemma Arterton quotes

My mother, she had a very good attitude toward money. I'm very grateful for the fact that we had to learn to save. I used to get like 50 pence a week, and I'd save it for like five months. And then I'd spend it on Christmas presents. I'd save up like eight pounds. It's nothing, but we did that.

I was quite naughty at school.

I'm always surprised at what I actually end up doing because I don't have a strategy or a game plan, especially now that I'm making my own choices.

I love strange things; my favorite movies are weird, eclectic, and intriguing.

I was in lots of dodgy bands growing up and I always fancied myself in a band. But, you know, I was rubbish at writing music. So maybe one day I'll play a rock star, or punk rocker.

I'm looking at working with people I get on with, that respect me, that don't just see me as a piece of ass. Which I have experienced as well. I've nearly walked off very big films before, and I would, because I don't want that in my life. I want to enjoy the work I do.

The industry is quite chauvinistic generally. Expectations of women, girls, what they should look like, how they should be, what they should say, what they should wear, how their hair should be, what colour their skin should be.

I actually had a cockney accent before I went to drama school. It's softened up a bit.

I am terrible at video games and I am really competitive. And if I am not the best at something, I go absolutely crazy!

I don't go out and go to parties and do all of that.

I don't want to be about the way I look - my body, my hair, my makeup, all those boring things.

I probably should get a bit more star-struck but I never do.

I was born with lots of deformities.

I was born with six fingers on each hand.

I'm always listening to music; I can't live without it.

When other little girls wanted to be ballet dancers, I kind of wanted to be a vampire. Angelina Jolie age

My definition of a friend is somebody who adores you even though they know the things you're most ashamed of. Jodie Foster

I just thank God that I didn't grow up with so much money or privilege because you had to create ways to make it happen. Kim Basinger
