When we are young, our parents always tell us not to wish our lives away and then, as we get older, we start to realise exactly what they meant by this, well most of us that it. One person who has clearly not realised that it is not really a good thing to wish their life away, is British actress Gemma Arterton, who seems to be doing just that.
Gemma Arterton is a top British actress and has played some impressive roles in some top movies over the years but it seems that she is not happy with the roles she is getting. Gemma has now claimed that she cannot wait to get even older, as she feels that she will then be able to land the roles that she craves the most.
Arterton explained, "I always feel like I’m too young for the parts I want to play. When you’re young, you should play the ingénues and the love interest and there are some great parts like that. But the ones I’m into are those complex ones, the type of role that rings within you. You tend to have to be a little older. I know you should be happy where you’re at. But in 10 years’ time, that’s when I’ll be playing the parts that get me going."
As for now though, Gemma Arterton can be seen, starring alongside Ryan Reynolds, Anna Kendrick and Jacki Weaver, in the movie The Voices, which has directed Marjane Satrapi based on the screenplay developed by Michael R. Perry. The Voices is one of the many movies to feature at the Sundance Film Festival this month.
