Gemma was forced to lose weight
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.
