Gemma was forced to lose weight

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - TIME OUT -

Many ac­tors such as Emma Thomp­son and Jennifer Lopez have spo­ken about be­ing told to watch their weight for their films. English ac­tor Gemma

Arter­ton (above) is the lat­est to speak about the is­sue.

She says that she was told by the pro­ducer of one of her films to lose weight. “There was one film that I was in and we were out in Morocco. A cou­ple of weeks went past and they lit­er­ally were like, we need a per­sonal trainer — stat,” says Gemma. “And they flew some­one out overnight to be with me and be my per­sonal trainer. You know when it's like — ‘Is it that bad that I need an emer­gency?” she adds.

The ac­tor was also pres­sured by pro­duc­ers to be in the gym late at night, and claims her trainer filmed her while she was work­ing out as proof.
