Former Bond girl Gemma Arterton says she took up all sorts of roles at the start of her career but she isn’t proud of them all.
The 31-year-old actor says she is grateful for being offered all those films because they helped her grow, reported ES magazine.

“For the first seven or eight years of my career, I was doing stuff because I thought I should, or I thought I was lucky to get that part. And I am grateful - it set me up. But it sits really badly with me when I make something I’m not proud of, or doesn’t say what I want to say,” says Arterton.
