Gemma Arterton says she used to be ‘rough’

Melbourne: British actor Gemma Arterton has admitted that she had a tough upbringing but had to learn to be “posh” while studying acting at London’s prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA).

“I was quite rough when I was younger. I had an attitude,” quoted her as saying.

“And at RADA they just said, ‘It doesn’t match your casting,’ so I had to learn to be posh in a way.

“I’ve had problems with people thinking I’m common and making judgements. It really angers me, it’s terrible, but people do. So you have to adapt, otherwise you’ll be limited,” she added.

The A-List star recently learnt the importance of her looks after wearing a prosthetic nose on her new comedy ‘Tamara Drewe’ and realising people’s attitudes changed.
