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."
