Gemma Arterton cleaned by co-stars
Gemma Arterton’s male co-stars used to try and wash her with a loofah.
The ‘Clash of the Titans’ actress - who plays Greek mythological being Io in the forthcoming remake of the 1981 movie - was ogled by her fellow actors as she bathed under a waterfall during one of their fight scenes.
She said: “There’s a moment which all the cast found hilarious where there’s all this fighting going on, all these men being completely macho, and then there’s me in a waterfall with my hair down, washing. All the boys were like, ‘Who’s going in with the loofah to give Io a wash?’ ”
Gemma starred alongside Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson in the upcoming action movie.
Although it is obvious the actors thought she looked stunning in the film, Gemma doesn’t think she looks anything like her characters in real life.
She said: “I don’t recognise myself. The other day I was looking at a line-up of all the roles I’ve played and I just don’t recognise myself in any of them. Probably ‘Prince of Persia’ is the closest to my actual look - I’m not as tanned as that but I am naturally dark.
“There are so many new doors that have opened, which is very exciting, but I do like doing something completely different with each part. Maybe I’ll play some fat old drug addict next.”
