Although her representatives were afraid of the risk caused by her nudity in movie 'The Disappearance of Alice Creed', Gemma Arterton says she took the role because of it.

British actress was quick to sign up for new movie "" - because she was drawn to saucy scenes in the film. The "" star plays a young woman kidnapped by two ex-convicts in the movie, due for release in late 2010.

And it was the nude scenes which attracted Arterton to the role - even though her representatives feared the part was too risque. She tells GQ magazine, "It was made in a shed on the 'Isle of Man'. Film making at its purest: no money and no time. But really good actors and a really good script."

"There was a bit of resistance from some, wondering if it was a good idea for me to do this film. It's quite violent and there's nudity in it but that's why I wanted to do it."
