The Daily Mail UK (one of my fav gossip sites) is reporting that new Bond girl Gemma Arterton, who’ll be starring opposite Daniel Craig in the upcoming “Quantum of Solace” flick, was born with six fingers on each hand.
She was apparently operated on as a very young child, in order to have the extra appendages removed, but she still has little bumpy scars to remind her.
She has a beautiful smile, no?
The Daily Mail also recently revealed, in a total spoiler, how Gemma’s character will die in the next Bond film. I won’t let the cat out of the bag, but it has something to do with this:
Other than the shit theme song co-written by Alicia Keys and the White Stripes’ Jack White, I’m really pleased with the direction the Bond conglomerate has been heading lately. I will always have a spot in my heart (and bed, let’s be honest) for Pierce Brosnan, but I never really believed he could kick some undercover ass. Daniel Craig, on the other hand, is entirely believable. He’s more of a Roger Moore type of Bond – rough around the edges, not formulaicly handsome, and, well, ROCK DIESEL. Gemma is also not a standard beauty. Her body obviously has that tall, leggy Geena Davis thing happening. But her face is a little quirky, and to me that makes her a) a more interesting character, and b) MORE beautiful.
So, you know, good work Bond Enterprises. Good work. (Now get a new theme song, and pronto!)
