Skype helped Gemma Arterton stay in shape

Los Angeles, May 5 (IANS) Actress Gemma Arterton worked out with her trainer with the help of Skype while shooting for a film.

She had to workout six days a week when she was in Ireland for “Byzantium”.

“It’s the new thing, we’ve decided, because I was filming in Ireland. I hate working out in gyms, and I don’t like the way they make your body look,” Marie Claire magazine quoted Arterton as saying.

While Gemma was keen to get in shape for the movie — in which she plays Clara, a vampire prostitute and mother who is protective of her daughter, played by Saoirse Ronan — she insists too many “intelligent actresses” are slimming down in excess.

“I saw an actress I know and she’s lost so much weight. She’s gone from a size 12 to a size four within two months,” she said.

“There are so many good, intelligent actresses doing this, and I just think, ‘Why does that go hand in hand with the acting profession?’ It shouldn’t. It lets the side down. It lets down team woman.”
