Arterton Aims To Break Bond Girl Mould

New BOND girl GEMMA ARTERTON is worried her feisty character in the forthcoming 007 movie QUANTUM OF SOLACE will fail to turn on red-blooded male fans - because she is so normal.
The British actress wanted to break the tried-and-tested Bond girl mould by playing a down-to-earth love interest in Daniel Craig's second outing as the suave secret agent.
However, despite Arterton insisting her character in the movie isn't "hot", she believes she has a certain humble charm that will interest most men.
She says, "There is a formula to Bond women. They're his women. You just have to make them your own in any way you can.
"To the normal guy, they're unobtainable but I didn't want that. I wanted my character to be a girl from down the road who does this job - we don't know exactly what she does but she goes to work every day - and comes back and she goes down the pub at the weekend and has a drink."
She adds, "At first you might think she was a bit of a snooty bitch but she's actually quite nice when you get to know her. I wanted to make her real. She's not hot but I hope there's a charm to her."
