London: British actress Gemma Arterton, who displayed her svelte figure in Bond film `Quantum of Solace`, says she doesn`t want to be typecast as a "hot girl", and wants to do serious roles.

"For me, it can really be frustrating when you`re just seen as the totty, and I know that I`ve always taken acting so seriously. The Bond film took me into that `hottie` category. It`s easy for people to put you in that `hot girl` slot. I don`t want to play those characters any more," Gemma was quoted as saying by

"Now I`m starting to be in the kinds of films I would go and see - quirky and interesting and not particularly blockbustery. So I have to prove my salt. And now is the time," she added.

The 24-year-old, who was also seen in "Clash of the Titans", also says that she agreed for the role of a girl from a wealthy family in her latest film "The Disappearance of Alice Creed" because she "wanted to do something where I could eat".
