    Default 'I'm too fat for fashion,' says UK Size 8 actress Gemma Arterton‎

    Bond girl Gemma Arterton boasts a slender figure, but is still made to feel fat by fashionistas.
    The Quantum Of Solace actress, 24 — who was told what not to eat by the makers of her latest film, Disney epic Prince Of Persia, after she was pictured with a double chin — says she was insulted by a designer who questioned whether she would fit into a size-six dress.

    Insulted: Gemma Arterton at the premiere of Prince of Persia on Sunday

    Says Gemma: ‘It is ridiculous. I went to a designer the other day — who will remain nameless — and he said to me: “I’m amazed that you’re fitting into these sample sizes.”’
    She then told the designer: ‘I’m a size eight to ten! I should be amazed that the largest you’re making these is a size six.’
    However, she admits: ‘Occasionally, I come home and say to my fiance [stunt driver Stefano Mioni]: “I feel really fat.”
    ‘He says: “Will you just listen to ­yourself? You know you’re being silly.” And I do know that when I’m home, but in the business it’s different.’
    She adds: ‘The only way that I could ever be a size six is if I didn’t eat. I’m not naturally meant to be that size, and I just feel like there’s a responsibility to people who aren’t that size to make that known.
    ‘All I can do, I think, is try to look good. I have things made for me so they fit.’

    So grow some balls, tell them you're not 'too fat for fashion', the real problem is that fashion is too anorexic for you. Or any women with banging bodies that are height/weight proportional.

    But that's what she is saying - that it's bullshit that designers tell her she's fat, or movie producers tell her to diet etc.

    She's not a size 8 by any means. My guess is 12.

    That's not really fair - I know people who look bigger in photos. Hell, I'm a size 10 and I look at least a 12 in photos.

    I know, but she's tall and well-built. A size 8 would look skinny on her...
