London, Aug 14 (IANS) British actress Gemma Arterton, who displayed her svelte figure in Bond film “Quantum of Solace”, says she doesn’t want to be typecast as a “hot girl”, and wants to do serious roles.
“For me, it can really be frustrating when you’re just seen as the totty, and I know that I’ve always taken acting so seriously. The Bond film took me into that ‘hottie’ category. It’s easy for people to put you in that ‘hot girl’ slot. I don’t want to play those characters any more,” Gemma was quoted as saying by dailymail.co.uk.
“Now I’m starting to be in the kinds of films I would go and see – quirky and interesting and not particularly blockbustery. So I have to prove my salt. And now is the time,” she added.
The 24-year-old, who was also seen in “Clash of the Titans”, also says that she agreed for the role of a girl from a wealthy family in her latest film “The Disappearance of Alice Creed” because she “wanted to do something where I could eat”.
