Yeah, we're a little belated with this birthday tribute for Gemma Arterton. We got this thing here in the States. It's called Super Bowl weekend. Kind of takes precedence over a lot of other things. Not something Gemma has to worry about, being from England and all. When the World Cup comes around and she's forgotten to wish me happy birthday, I'll understand. Until that incredibly unlikely day comes, let's all take a moment and celebrate one of the most beautiful English roses on her special day. Gemma reaches her 28th this year, though for most of us it's only been around 6 years since she made her big debut playing the sweet little redhead pencil pusher who falls under James Bond's spell in QUANTUM OF SOLACE. Even if her Bond movie wasn't the greatest chapter in the franchise, I know I was supremely impressed with her right off the bat.
Things have only gotten better with Gemma since then. She's one of the few ladies out there with the consistent ability to take my breath away on sight, no matter what she's doing. It doesn't even matter if some of her movies kind of suck. She can make them watchable with little more than the power of her supreme beauty. Hell, even her paparazzi shots do amazing things for me. Of course, it makes things even better that she's also got some skills as an actress to supplement those fantastic looks. She's come a long way in six years, going from super cute Bond girl to one of my top hotties out there today. Not a bad run thus far. I can't wait to see what good things she has in store for us. Happy Birthday, Gemma.
