A few days ago, Price of Persia’s Gemma Arterton told us that her slender figure “doesn’t come naturally”. Today, Gemma complains about how the industry makes her feel fat sometimes:
â€œIt is ridiculous. I went to a designer the other day – who will remain nameless – and he said to me: â€œI’m amazed that you’re fitting into these sample sizes. I said, â€œI’m a size eight to ten! I should be amazed that the largest you’re making these is a size six.’â€
â€˜Occasionally, I come home and say to my fiance [stunt driver Stefano Mioni]: â€œI feel really fat.â€
â€˜He says: â€œWill you just listen to yourself? You know you’re being silly.â€ And I do know that when I’m home, but in the business it’s different.’
â€œThe 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.â€
