Gemma Arterton Makes Toilet Escape

Gemma Arterton goes to the toilet to hide from her fans.

The British actress recently visited her hometown and received so much attention in the restaurant she was eating in she had take evasive action in the rest room.

Referring to her character in new movie 'Tamara Drewe', Gemma - who grew up in Gravesend, Kent, South East England - told BANG Showbiz: "I grew up in a town that's not that far away from London at all, but not the countryside, and I went home two weeks ago for a visit. I went to a restaurant and people kind of recognise you more when you are from there. It is kind of weird. And they idolise you and put you on a pedestal. In London I think everyone is preoccupied with their own lives to even care. But it is weird going back to your hometown. Unlike Tamara I just go and hide in the toilet. Tamara goes and puts on some hot pants!"

In 'Tamara Drewe', the 24-year-old screen beauty stars as the journalist character of the same name who returns to her childhood home in the English countryside after her mother dies and surprises the locals with her new sexy look.
