    Thumbs up Gemma Arterton: I refuse to conform to the muscly, sinewy look

    There were catty comments after a snap appeared of Gemma Arterton sporting a double chin but, as befits a Bond Girl, the stunning 23-year-old actress has come out fighting.
    Gemma, who appeared naked and slicked in oil in the 007 movie Quantum Of Solace, said she had no plans to slim down for future movie roles and took a swipe at her critics, declaring: ĎI refuse to conform to this muscly, sinewy look that so many actresses seem to think is attractive.
    'I hate it and I donít think itís very feminine. I dress like a woman and I wear a lot of couture because itís made for real women with curves.í


    Proud of her body: Gemma Arterton says she has no plans to slim down

    Speaking at Harvey Weinsteinís post-Bafta party at The Double Club, Gemma admitted: ĎIíd be lying if I said I wasnít hurt by what people were saying about the picture.í
    But she added: ĎIt was just a bad photo taken from the wrong angle. Iím a size ten, which I donít think is big.
    'Anyway, Iím about to shoot a new movie and the first scenes involve me wearing a brown paper bag over my head, so that should shut people up.í You tell them, Gemma!

    I would love that dress without that belt. Oh wait, not the
    style section here!
    I see she's looking way up so as not to have a double chin. What a drag.
    Some of us just have them no matter what our weight is.

    I agree with her, there was such a furore over that one picture where she had a bit of a double chin. It's nice to hear somebody speaking out over the whole muscley body image that a lot of women seem to be buying into lately.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    I was thinking that myself... I hope that she sticks to what she says and stays woman-shaped. I'm sick of all these female breadsticks in films and tv these days.

    she doesn't look anything even close to fat.

    Hollywood really needs to get a grip & reality check.

    Well from what I've heard that's very much the truth. Her sister is a cow too.

    To be fair, the picture they've used is from the Quantum of Solace premiere, not the more recent picture of her where she has a 'double chin'. She's put on weight but she still isn't anywhere near fat.
