London: Gemma Arterton has revealed that she chooses only those roles which she thinks will act as a good example for young girls.

The 27-year-old actress, who is playing the role of a scantily clad, lap-dancing prostitute in her latest movie ` Byzantium `, told the Hunger Magazine that she always thinks about the young girls in the audience to the point where it`s probably not helped her in terms of her career, the Daily Express reported.

The former bond girl further insisted that even though she has to play the role of a victim or a user or a villain at times, she tries to depict women in a positive sense.

"When you play the hero, you don`t do it wearing a bra and knickers," she said.
