Gemma Arterton's Persian jealousy

September 10th, 2010

Gemma Arterton's friends were jealous of her love scenes with hunky Jake Gyllenhaal.

The 'Tamara Drewe' actress has starred alongside a string of handsome actors including Daniel Craig, Sam Worthington and Dominic Cooper in her career but it was her on-screen clinch with hunky 'Prince of Persia' co-star that all her friends wanted to talk about.

She said: "They're always asking if I kiss him. And I say, 'Yes, I do, so there!' They're all wildly jealous!"

However British beauty Gemma - who married Italian sales manager Stefano Catelli in June - said the best thing about Jake is his sense of humour.

She explained: "The nicest thing about Jake is that he's such a lovely, funny, kind and down-to-earth guy."

Gemma added that a sense of humour is vital on long shoots. Speaking about her time on the set of 'Prince of Persia' she said: "The whole cast and crew don't take themselves too seriously. They take the work seriously, but not themselves, and I think that's the best attitude to have, because when you are in the middle of a desert in Morocco in blistering heat and everyone is exhausted, it's much easier if we can all have a joke about it."

'Prince of Persia' is available on DVD and Blu-ray from September 13.
