Gemma Arterton quotes

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 six fingers on each hand.

I was quite naughty at school.

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

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.
