Gemma Arterton was nervous about nude scenes in 'The Disappearance of Alice Creed'.

The British actress reveals she had a bout of nerves before she had to appear on set with no clothes on, but decided not to complain as it was part of The Script and her co-stars Martin Compston and Eddie Marsan were both naked too.

She said: "It is nerve-wracking. I loved the script and I said yes to it, so I was like, right, this is going to happen, I'm going to do it, and both the boys had to do it too get naked, and I'm going to commit to it and I'm not going to complain. Otherwise I wouldn't say yes to the job in the first place."

The 24-year-old star - who made her first big-screen debut in James Bond movie 'Quantum of Solace' - also thinks naked scenes are "weird", but there are worse things she could do.

She told Sky Showbiz: "I think it's like doing a love scene or a kissing scene, any scene that's weird, you just have to get on with it, it's part of the job. And if it's necessary, which it is in this film, it's weird. We all have to do weird things in our jobs."

Gemma recently revealed she thought her 'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time' co-star was attractive, but wouldn't try anything as she has a fiance.

She said: "Jake was a very, very funny guy. He's really nice. He's quite serious when it comes to his work. He works hard and he is a perfectionist. But he likes to make jokes and he's fun. He's funny. And he is fit, of course. But I'm engaged."
