Gemma Arterton wants to be Rachel Weisz.

Despite a glittering film career of her own, the 24-year-old actress is in awe of her fellow British beauty and would love to be able to balance a film career and family life like her.

She said: "I'd really like the type of career Rachel Weisz has. I have a lot of respect for her, brilliant, talented, intelligent, a witty sort of woman. You know, she'll do a rom-com - not that I ever want to do a rom-com - but then she'll go off and do 'The Constant Gardener', have a family and live quite a normal life, it seems. I respect that."

Although she loves her job, Gemma is desperate to maintain a certain level of normality in her life and finds being a famous actress quite "daunting".

She said: "I'll be honest with you, it's daunting - you have no idea what people are going to think of you, or if they'll even be interested in you!"
