When a studio puts together a mini-press conference with just the lead actress in attendance, it's really just a desperate attempt to get the people hooked on her charm, charisma and beauty based on looks alone. Luckily for the people behind HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS, they've got a super-plum like Gemma Arterton to take on such a "challenge". I put that word in quotes, because I sincerely doubt that Arterton has any trouble keeping a room full of people focused on her. She's almost too beautiful to be real, it's actually scary. Call me the world's most perverted movie nerd (you probably wouldn't be too far off), but despite her notable roles in so many big-budget motion pictures (QUANTUM OD SOLACE, PRINCE OF PERSIA, CLASH OF THE TITANS, etc.), I most distinctly remember Gemma for pouring her ass into some denim short-shorts in TAMARA DREWE. Strange how the human mind works, ain't it?
