Gemma Arterton Punches Leery Stranger

Gemma Arterton
Gemma Arterton once punched a man when he groped her inappropriately.

The 'Runner Runner' actress isn't ashamed to admit she socked a leery stranger in the face when he grabbed her bottom as she feels everyday sexism is completely unacceptable in this day and age.

Gemma told Stylist magazine: "I've had [sexism] before; everyone's had it. Someone put their hand up my bum one time. He went to squeeze my a**e but his hand went right up there and I ended up decking him. I know it shouldn't have resulted in violence but it's not acceptable."

Review: Neil Jordan's 'Byzantium' Is Desperate To Prove It's Smart

June 28th, 2013 1:25pm EDT
Byzantium
Back in 1994, Director Neil Jordan took on his most prolific work to date – Anne Rice’s novel turned flick "Interview with a Vampire."  It continued the cool character work shown so aptly in the brilliant "The Crying Game," but added back some of the genre lush previously seen in "The Company of Wolves."  With his return to the fanged film scene with the new film "Byzantium," Jordan does once again display signature style, but is also working from a script that has a severe lack of focus.  As a result the film is not a sharp as it should be – classic bark overpowering bite.

'Prince Of Persia' And Video Game Movies

May 27th, 2010 11:20am EDT
Prince of Persia
Comic book movies have started to be extremely successful in recent media, what with box office hits like Iron Man 2, The Dark Knight, and Wanted. However, video games never seem to translate as well to the big screen. There are a few reasons that might be. For one, comic book heroes are just better known in general. It would be hard to find a person that doesn't know who Batman, Superman, or Wolverine is, even if they've never picked up a comic. The same cannot really be said of Lara Croft or Marcus Fenix, even if video games are slowly making their way into popular culture now. Disney got...

The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston screened the independent film “Holy Rollers” last week so I had the chance to check it out. Based on a true story, "Holy Rollers" stars Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Bartha as Hasidic Jews who become drug smugglers. Eisenberg is fantastic as a man of faith conflicted by his new lifestyle, but the rest of his character Sam Gold is his standard awkward type casting. Justin Bartha is also believably sleazy and conniving as Sam's mentor Yosef. While its plot is intriguing, my overall opinion of it is brought down by the uninspired dialogue between its charac...

"I hired a camel in Los Angeles and I rode it around for 15 hours a day and I would only eat twigs and berries...and drink water from the sewers, which really (helps you} drop weight."

But in all seriousness, the actor "really worked hard," according to producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

He explained, "He worked for months and months before the movie started. He trained every single day. He rode bikes, he lifted weights, he had a very specific diet. He couldn't have any fats, and it was reall...
