Gemma Arterton's regret her Bond girl had sex with James Bond after criticism

Gemma Arterton has shared her regret at her Bond girl enjoying a night of passion with James Bond in the 2008 movie Quantum of Solace.

The 24-year-old actress played MI6 agent Strawberry Fields in the spy flick opposite leading man Daniel Craig, who she was seen enjoying a tryst with on camera.

While Gemma saw off competition from 1,500 other women wanting to star in the hit film she has admitted she’s not entirely happy with her performance.

The star said she has come under fire for taking on the sexy role and says she wishes her character had turned down a romp with 007.

She explained:”At the beginning of my career, I was poor as a church mouse and I was happy just to be able to work and earn a living

“I still get criticism for accepting Quantum Of Solace, but I was 21, I had a student loan, and you, know, it was a Bond film.

“But as I got older I realised there was so much wrong with Bond women. Strawberry should have just said no, really, and worn flat shoes,” she told The Sun.

Gemma grew up in humble beginnings on a council estate in Gravesend, Kent where her single mum ran a cleaning business.

At the age of 18 Gemma was granted a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art before landing a role in Brit flick St. Trinian’s and the BBC’s Tess Of The D’Urbervilles.

The budding star then went on to silver screen roles with parts in action movies Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time and Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Viewers will see Gemma’s latest return to the BBC for new drama Black Narissus tonight, where she stars as nun Sister Clodagh.

The new BBC/FX drama explores the sexual repression and forbidden love of a group of religious women in a tale adapted from Rumer Godden’s 1939 novel of the same name.

Black Narissus airs Sunday on BBC One at 9pm
