Gemma Arterton says her Prince of Persia costumes were more expensive than her house. The actress plays Princess Tamina in the new film starring Jake Gyllenhaal. She was nervous while shooting scenes because the set was so opulent.
About her film costumes she says: "They were worth more than my house! They were hand-embroidered with gold thread. I was walking around drinking coffee in them, probably not being as respectful as I should. I’m so not Disney princess material. The biggest challenge was being spiritual, soulful and graceful."
