London: British actress Gemma Arterton says she always wanted to be a princess when she was a child.

"I come from a simple background. My mum was a cleaner and my dad was a welder. But there was a time when I wanted to become a princess," femalefirst.co.uk quoted her as saying.

"I probably read too many romantic novels. I always wanted to be rescued by a prince. But I wouldn`t have looked my best," she said.

The 24-year-old recently played Princess Tamina in "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time".
