But Arterton is baffled by her sexy status, because she was once deemed "not hot enough" for "007". She tells Britain's GQ magazine, "In comparison to many actresses, I think I'm really average. When I got the 'Bond' film there was a big hoo-ha (fuss) about me not being hot enough. I have to say I agree. I don't think I'm in that realm."

Arterton admits she found it hard to watch herself onscreen alongside Ukrainian beauty , but she's adamant her "average" looks give her an advantage against more attractive stars.
