The Prince of Persia star claims women are objectified and often treated as a just a "piece of a**" in the male-dominated movie industry.
Arterton, 24, tells GQ magazine, "I’ve nearly walked off very big films before, and I would, because I don’t want that in my life. I want to enjoy the work I do.
"I’m looking at working with people I get on with, that respect me, that don’t just see me as a piece of a**. Which I have experienced as well."
