Gemma Arterton had a foul mouth

Feb 20 2013, 5:20am CST | by

Gemma Arterton used to swear at people in a London accent.

Although the stunning Bond girl may be known for her posh accent on screen, the 'Quantum of Solace' star grew up with a less glamorous 'Cockney' accent - which is associated with the east end of London and is comprised of many rhyming slang words such as "apples and pears", meaning stairs.

But when Gemma - who was raised with her sister Hannah on an estate in Kent, south east England, by her mother Sally-Anne - broke into acting she had to alter her natural voice.

She told the Metro newspaper: "I grew up in Kent with an Estuary accent so strong it was almost Cockney. I was all like, 'Wot the f**k you lookin' at?' Then I went to drama school where they told me that it wouldn't do me any favors and they teach you RP [received pronunciation] instead. (sic)"

While her change in tone may have served the 27-year-old actress well - helping her land lead roles in movies such as 'Clash of the Titans' and 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters' - she revealed her working class family was less pleased with her new opulent accent.

She said: "I remember going to my dad's house for Sunday roast and I said something like, 'May you pass the ketchup?', and he went, 'F**k off. I'm not passing you nuffing when you speak like that. What are you, Mary Poppins or somefing?' (sic)"

Idris Elba: ‘I’m not into the whole fame thing. I don’t have celebrity friends’

Here are some photos of Idris Elba running around London yesterday. He actually in character and filming a running scene for A Hundred Streets, which is the same one he’s been doing with Gemma Arterton the past month. I think Idris and Gemma play a married couple with significant issues. Idris was recently in LA for the Emmys, but he left empty-handed because Benedict Cumberbatch won in that category. Idris also has a new film coming out, No Good Deed, with Taraji Henson. To promote the f ...

Idris Elba corrects the record about his freakshow bulge seen in recent photos

Aug 10 2014 7:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Idris Elba and Gemma Arterton have been filming A Hundred Streets in London for the past few weeks. I know nothing about this film, but judging from the photos alone, I think Gemma and Idris are married with children, and Idris plays some kind of abusive or depressive bastard and at some point, Gemma takes the kids away. And as she leaves, Idris stands on a balcony, waving a rifle and screaming at her. We have those photos (below). We also have the photos of Idris with what ...
