Gemma Arterton 'doesn't enjoy making blockbusters'

Gemma Arterton didn't enjoy making any of the blockbuster films she's starred in.

The 29-year-old beauty, who appeared as Strawberry Fields in the 2008 James Bond film 'Quantum of Solace' and the 2010 movie 'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time', says appearing in big budget productions helped boost her profile, but ultimately left her feeling unfulfilled.

The actress - who stars in the new black comedy 'The Voices' - told Digital Spy: "I think if the right blockbuster came up, I'd do it [now], but I didn't really enjoy any of the blockbusters that I made!

"I can say that now that they've happened, and I'm grateful for the various things that they've brought into my life, but it's not the work that I enjoy doing."

Meanwhile, Ryan Reynolds - Gemma's on-screen co-star in 'The Voices' - recently said he was as nervous singing in his new film as he would be if he was going for a "very aggressive prostate exam".

The 38-year-old actor - who is married to actress Blake Lively, with whom he has a baby daughter - plays fictional serial killer Jerry Hickfang in the film and when he was told by director Marjane Satrapi he would have to display his vocal skills he broke into a cold sweat.

He recalled: "Marjane would laugh at me with her weird expression, saying I looked like 'cold yoghurt' as I walked in to record my part.

"I had a flop sweat, I was desperately pale - it looked like I was going in for a very aggressive prostate exam."
