Gemma Arterton insists she isn't glamorous.

The 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' actress enjoys fashion and getting dressed up for red carpet events, but feels more at ease when she is relaxed about her appearance.

She told Britain's Hello! magazine: ''I do enjoy fashion - I think it's fun - and now that I've had my hair and make-up done, I do feel quite nice.

''But you should have seen me a couple of days ago. I'd just got back from a trip to Spain, where I didn't really wash for a week. My hair was in dreadlocks and my nails were filthy. That's the real me - not what you're looking at right now.''

Gemma has previously admitted she likes to keep her style simple.

She said: ''For me it's kind of simple really. I don't really go for anything too embellished or fancy or frilly or girly and it has to be easy because I haven't got time for anything that's too difficult!

''I just like putting on a pair jeans and jacket and going, although I do like heels - I've got a passion for shoes, but I always end up wearing the one same pair of shoes. But it works with my lifestyle because I'm always running around so it doesn't work for me to wear tight skirts and corsets, or whatever it is! Jeans are definitely the way forward.''
