Gemma Arterton's Hollywood Mistreatment

Posted Wednesday September 15, 2010 2:31 PM GMT

Hollywood is not always the glitz and glam it seems to be. In fact, Gemma Arterton recently revealed how poorly she’s been treated in the past.

Opening up to GQ Magazine, the “Clash of the Titans” babe said, “I've nearly walked off very big films before, and I would, because I don't want that in my life. I want to enjoy the work I do.”

She also noted the film industry tends to put women in the “background” and added that she has been seen “as a piece of a**”.

“I'm looking at working with people I get on with, that respect me, that don't just see me as a piece of ass. Which I have experienced as well.”

But, knowing exactly what she wants, Ms Arterton dished, “What I want to do is find characters who are the focus, like Nicola Six; sexy and real women, not perfect, not pin-ups.”
