Gemma Arterton has revealed she has kept the prosthetic nose from her new film, Tamara Drewe.
The Prince Of Persia star dons a big fake nose to play the title role in Stephen Frears' new drama, but rather than saying goodbye to it once filming ended, she gave it the pride of place in her bathroom.
"I actually have that nose in my bathroom, framed - it's great, I just look at it sometimes," she said.
In the film, based on Posy Simmonds' comic strip, Tamara returns to her childhood Dorset village as a smouldering femme fatale with a glamorous job and a new nose after leaving as an awkward teenager.
"The nose started off as just being a big nose and not ridiculously big, and then Stephen thought it would be funny to just keep making it bigger and bigger, so I had this big beak," Gemma recalled.
"It's amazing how much it changed my face but some people didn't know it was me wearing it. I went on set and I had the whole get-up on, and I went to make a cup of tea and someone said 'Oh sorry, that's only for people making the film'."
:: Tamara Drewe will be released on September 10.
